The National Football League, which just settled a $765 million class action lawsuit with former players suffering from the effects of concussions, will use software to offer on-demand access to players’ medical images across the league.

The NFL will implement the Smart-Net Web-based picture and communications system of INFINITT North America at more than 100 sites across its 32 teams. Images can be accessed by appropriate users from remote locations, and even viewed on mobile devices from the sidelines, according to the vendor.

The PACS will integrate with the league’s electronic medical records system from eClinicalWorks Inc. In addition to offering immediate access to pertinent images, the site will automate transition of players’ images when they are traded to another club, and will enable uploading and access to pre-NFL images upon drafting a player.
