• Reasons to Adopt Enterprise Imaging

    Improved Patient Care

    Patient care is paramount, and when enterprise imaging is adopted, quality of care can be elevated. It’s also important to note that today’s culture has shifted away from simply diagnosing and treating the sick. Today’s healthcare culture is primed for an emphasis on proactive and preventive care.

    The current EHR and PACS require clinicians and providers to search through multiple systems to get acquainted with a patient’s medical history and profile. Crucial diagnoses could potentially be missed because the information was too buried or in too many disparate systems to be found and reconciled.

  • Clinical Efficiencies Solved by Enterprise Imaging

    How to Know When You Need a Modern EI Implementation.

    Common Challenge: Wasted staff hours due to workflow inefficiencies associated with importing images from DVD.

    The scenario is common across healthcare delivery organizations when disparate PACS systems create an inability to easily exchange images. Instead, outdated systems require images to be imported from a DVD or other physical storage mechanism. Because this is cumbersome, a provider is often forced to order a repeat exam that is not medically necessary. This, in turn, creates delays in treatment while waiting for additional images. Physician and patient dissatisfaction results, as care is slow and cumbersome, and the cost of testing is unnecessarily increased.

  • Enterprise Imaging 101: What You Need to Know

    Enterprise Imaging Technology

    In today’s modern medical era, the demands placed on a care provider are complex. Care providers are responsible for providing personable, hands-on, patient care while also managing highly technical processes like updating electronic health records (EHR), operating advanced technology, and communicating via multiple devices.

    Much of this behind-the-scenes work is management of patient data including health records, radiology scans, imaging results, and other multimedia. With the advent of the digital age and the data-driven revolution, it is  important for healthcare organizations to have a strong strategy for managing all this information.

    Enterprise imaging is the area of healthcare that aims to bring together important patient data, images, and multimedia. In this guide, we’ll fully explore the facets of enterprise imaging and how they contribute to consistent, quality, patient care.
