Your new unified radiology platform, enabling every radiologist to work at the top of their craft

Do you know that moment at work when distractions fade away, you are at one with your technology, and everything just works?

Enterprise Imaging for Radiology offers a platform that drives that process, with improved efficiency, shared workflow across sites, and better real-time collaboration. Radiologists can increase their productivity and wellbeing, while focusing on what’s most important: diagnosing and treating patients.

The flow continues on the system side, as the consolidated platform lets IT/PACS Administrators work efficiently whilst optimizing resources. Whether for a single department or a multi-facility network, you can make images easily accessible across the enterprise, whilst controlling system complexity, administration and costs.

10 good reasons for Radiologists

Enterprise Imaging for Radiology’s native rules-based workflow engine helps you to organize tasks and define priorities within sub-specialties, by modality and across shared institutions.

Full transparency makes it easy to balance workloads, even during the busiest times. Your workflow remains predictive and productive, tasks do not get missed, patient throughput is optimized, and results creation are accelerated to improve the delivery of patient care. The workflow engine is “native” in Enterprise Imaging, requiring no external orchestrator or application.

Workflow engines are highly customizable, which helps optimize tasks and makes workflows more robust. Furthermore, processes can be measured and improved upon with ease and efficiency.

Enterprise Imaging for Radiology puts collaboration, chat and share tools right in your desktop, keeping you connected with colleagues and peers. Live screen sharing allows multiple colleagues to see images and annotations in real time.

Easy and effective workflows allow users to organize and participate in multidisciplinary meetings, tumor boards and conferences, with schedules, rules, discussion tasks and participants all managed. Presentations can be prepared with snapshots, full screen layout, current image level and MPR reconstruction, and comments can be added for your later review.

Dual author reporting workflows enhance the teaching workflows with resident and attending physician workflows and a feedback loop.

Native Peer-Learning workflows permit qualitative review of reporting activities with links to scoring reports.

You can turn errors into opportunities: to share, collaborate, learn and progress. With a focus on understanding “how and why” an error occurred, you can encourage a positive mindset that is more open to learning, enabling a continuous improvement cycle.

In addition to sharing medical knowledge and best practices, you can create follow-up tasks at any point in the workflow, to build an improvement action plan.

Native teaching files, conference management and support for virtual classrooms help residents get the most from their learning experience.

Advanced hanging protocols replace the series-based hanging protocols to provide a consistent and predictable review workflow.

Hanging protocols in Enterprise Imaging for Radiology let you present studies and images in a consistent and predictable manner across modalities (regardless of vendor). You can easily create and modify them to your preferred way of working.

Dynamic Hanging Protocols allow users to define the view (layout), the content (DICOM Objects) and the behavior of the viewport (Stacked, Linked, MIP MPR 3D automated registration of comparative studies and more) and are presented in a sequential manner that is predictive and repeatable.

The automated comparative review gives you a holistic picture of the patient’s clinical situation, enabling you to create a report that supports greater diagnostic confidence.

Enterprise Imaging for Radiology lets you extend the value of your diagnostic desktop with third-party post-processing tools and applications.

Your studies (including 3D and MIP/MPR) and clinical tools are available in a single desktop and viewer without switching workstation – for enhanced productivity.

Native Advanced imaging tools that span Radiology procedure types

  • Automatic registration of comparative studies
  • 3D, MIP and MPR
  • CPR
  • PET
  • Orthopedic Measurement
  • And more

Enterprise Imaging for Radiology integrates bi-directionally with your EHR to provide users easy access to patient images and data.

The Enterprise Imaging EHR viewer enables many of the native functions associated with the diagnostic desktop, including advanced hanging protocols and image processing to drive the user experience.

With sectional reporting, you can provide a standardized report structure that helps referring physicians quickly find what they need.

Findings are presented in natural, logical and consistent groupings to help the clinician with timely diagnosis and treatment.

Reporting functionalities embedded in the desktop offer you easy access to everything you need. When the images are loaded, just hit the record button on your microphone and begin dictating; you don’t need an additional word processor.

*Depending on your region and current speech technology installation, sectional reporting use cases may not be applicable to you.

The Enterprise Imaging Radiology ecosystem allows the potential of AI to work for you, and embeds best of breed AI applications, ensuring you a seamless experience.

Rules-based workflow engine enables workflow optimization and automation by analyzing standards-based meta data generated by regulatory cleared AI algorithms. Users would appreciate fast image analysis and improved turnaround times, reduced manual tasks, and automated case distribution based on results generated by AI algorithms.

You can focus your time and attention on activities that offer more value for your patients with AI enabled-decision support, and deliver more informed diagnosis and recommendations.

*AI features are a work in progress.

Remote reporting and shared workflows let your team work from any location – with the same applications and processes that they use at the hospital.

Radiologists can report remotely, with full access to the worklist and reporting tools. You can balance workloads across -sites, networks and regions, and provide fast imaging services 24/7, even in busy times, cost-effectively. Your ‘in-hospital’ best practices become the way of working remotely.
