Vital Launches Unique Personalized HIE/EMR Viewing Platform

Patient Centric, Accountable Care Ready, Interoperability Platform

Minneapolis, February 26, 2016 —Vital Images, Inc., (Vital), a Minneapolis-based advanced medical imaging and informatics company, launched their personalized viewing platform to the global marketplace. The company’s personalized viewing platform will be one of several solutions featured at HIMSS (booth 732), February 29 – March 4, 2016 in Las Vegas, NV. While Vital continues to lead the world in advanced visualization and personalized medicine algorithms, 2016 heralds an increased focus on enterprise informatics and analytics. Vital is committed to bringing the vision and strategy behind advanced algorithm ingenuity into the informatics realm. The approach encompasses targeting informatics related to better outcomes in accountable care and collaborative care while integrating multiple EMR, HIE, VNA, PACS, ECM and more. As with the recently announced, second generation VNA on-demand and data migration solutions, the personalized viewing platform sets forth a next generation revolution in HIE and EMR access enablement to the marketplace.

Vital’s personalized viewing platform sets forth the first example of a next generation universal viewer solution, based on lessons learned in first generation universal viewer platforms. This next generation platform allows chief medical information officers and their clinicians to rapidly access images and other content, no matter what underlying systems are deployed. Furthermore, it provides an experience-based upon the role of the user in conjunction with the type of patient being reviewed.  The solution provides a platform to drive more rapid physician adoption due to the personalized nature of the content.

“We are excited to launch our personalized viewing platform to the global marketplace. This new product development is aligned with our customer centered product development ethos. The personalized viewing platform provides an immediate non-disruptive solution to accessing underlying systems, leveraging existing infrastructure, truly changing the face of the enterprise informatics marketplace forever. From an enterprise informatics perspective at Vital, this is a necessary, yet incremental step, in our vision to provide unique solutions in enterprise interoperability;  patient engagement; secure access to the patient’s complete health record and more in lockstep with the accountable care environment,” said President and CEO at Vital, Jim Litterer.

“Based on direct feedback from our customers using our universal viewer, there was a definite need to begin development of a next generation extension of the universal viewer concept. The need for rapid access to multiple vendor PACS and other multimedia content, from one viewer, was evident. Simplicity is mandatory for technology providers, in a marketplace steeped in growing government regulations, pressure on shared savings programs, increased focus on chronic disease management, bundled payments, Accountable Care Organizations and the Patient Privacy Accountable Care Act (PPACA),” said General Manager, Enterprise Informatics at Vital, Scott Galbari.
