Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, N.Y. will implement Digisonics CVIS for enterprise PACS and structured reporting of their echo, cath, nuclear and cardiac MR studies.
April 2, 2014 (Newswire) - Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, N.Y. has selected the Digisonics cardiovascular information system (CVIS) as their enterprise solution for echo (adult, pediatric and fetal), cath (adult and pediatric), nuclear, and cardiac MR. The Digisonics CVIS will be implemented at three facilities across their enterprise: Winthrop University Hospital, Winthrop Cardiology Associates and Island Cardiac Specialists. The Digisonics cardiovascular information system provides Winthrop's clinicians with a comprehensive clinical database, high-powered PACS and structured cardiology reporting.
Winthrop University Hospital's cardiologists will also utilize Digisonics' newest application, WebView 4.0, providing them with the convenience of anywhere, anytime access to their patient images and reports. This application provides users with zero footprint review from any HTML5 capable browser or device. There is no need for ActiveX or other plugins and no patient health information is retained on the viewing device.
Seamless integration of the Digisonics cardiovascular information system with Philips QLAB, TomTec, Medis and INVIA will provide Winthrop University Hospital with advanced image quantitation and analysis for their cardiovascular studies. A single click launches the 3rd party analysis software directly from the Digisonics cardiovascular reporting workstation and the post-processed images are saved back into the Digisonics CVIS for review. Winthrop's cardiovascular information system will be enhanced with the Digisonics Search Package, a comprehensive, user-configurable search engine. This powerful tool enables users to quickly set up search criteria to extract clinical information from their cardiovascular information system database for research purposes, compile statistics required for accreditation and generate management reports to target areas for improvement.
HL7 interfaces between Winthrop's Siemens Envision and GE Centricity systems and the Digisonics cardiovascular information system will create a fully electronic and efficient workflow. Winthrop University Hospital will implement Digisonics DigiConnect, a new application enabling the facility to launch any 3rd party systems (such as EMR/HIS, PACS or ECG management software) directly from the Digisonics cardiovascular information system workstation. Users benefit from the convenience of a single sign-on as user credentials and patient information are passed directly to the 3rd party systems. The result is a seamless cardiovascular reporting workflow with improved efficiency, accuracy and turnaround times for all facilities within Winthrop University Hospital's enterprise.
