    Solution spotlight

    Enterprise imaging repository

    Centralize your enterprise imaging repository to consolidate archives, lower costs and give providers unified access to the images and data they need to deliver better care. It's a single source of imaging information to support more effective decision making.

    Enable healthcare professionals to build the Imaging Health Record with medical photos, videos and emergency images captured using any web-enabled device (including smartphone and tablet) and directly connect that data to a patient’s Electronic Health Record. An easy automated work­flow will support clinicians to manage encounter based data and integrate images and videos with patient records. Captured imaging data will be stored directly to the archive and linked to the Electronic Health Record for immediate reference.

    Enterprise viewer

    A zero-footprint enterprise viewer module which minimizes training and provides user satisfaction with a single, browser-based viewer for any type of image. Adhering to privacy standards, it provides authorized users access to the images and reports needed, using two-factor authentication.
    Embedded within your EMR, the enterprise viewer connects with existing patient records to provide seamless storage, accessibility and sharing of clinical data and may even be used to share images across HIE or regional networks.

    Interactive multi-media reporting

    The interactive multi-media reporting module offers voice recognition, RIS and PACS integration. Using single sign-on authentication, it allows users to create structured as well as user-defined reports. Patient information is embedded within the report automatically, where measurements and key images may be inserted with a single click or voice command, thus taking tedious manual data entry out of diagnostic reporting.
    Complemented by the Radiology reading module, it offers a single workspace with key images presented alongside patient details and analytical information. Reduce complexity and allowing to reach better outcomes with a system that’s easy to deploy and train across the enterprise.

    Workflow orchestrator

    The workflow orchestrator automatically delivers the most urgent studies to the most qualified radiologists to expedite reading and reporting. Users can read studies based on subspecialty and organize a peer review process to elevate the quality of diagnosis.
    Workflow orchestrator allows users to access reports and follow-up by the ordering physician, use screen sharing, and chat and link invitations to simplify and improve collaborative relationships. Using real-time analytics, performance may be analyzed to identify actionable insights, which helps prioritize critical exams as quickly as possible.
