Nuance PowerShare Network Unveiled for Cloud-Based Medical Imaging and Report Exchange
|By Business Wire
|April 17, 2014 08:02 AM EDT
Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) announced today the immediate
availability of Nuance
PowerShare™ Network, the industry’s largest cloud-based network for
securely connecting physicians, patients, government agencies, specialty
medical societies and others to share essential medical images and
reports as simply as people exchange information using social networks.
Nuance PowerShare Network promotes informed and connected physicians and
patients who can instantly view, share and collaborate while addressing
patients’ healthcare needs.
“Organizations are being tasked to communicate efficiently both in and
out of their networks to provide clinical insight to physicians beyond
one person or office to a much broader team involved in the continuum of
care,” said Keith
Dreyer, DO, PhD, FACR, vice chairman of radiology at Massachusetts
General Hospital and Chair of the American College of Radiology (ACR) IT
and Informatics Committee. “Nuance PowerShare Network addresses the
information sharing challenge physicians face today with a network that
supports things we’ve dreamed of doing for years,” he adds.
Fully Connected Patients & Providers
Network is already used by more than 1,900 provider organizations for
sharing images via the cloud using open standards. Made possible through
the acquisition of Accelarad,
this medical imaging exchange eliminates the costly and insecure process
of managing images on CDs and removes silos of information in healthcare
that inhibit providers from optimizing the efficiency and quality of
care they provide. Anyone can join the network regardless of IT systems
in place to instantly view and manage images needed to consult, diagnose
or treat patients, enabling clinicians to more seamlessly evaluate and
deliver care for patients who transition between facilities or care
Nuance is already used by more than 500,000 clinicians and is a critical
component within the radiology workflow and a trusted partner for 1,600+
provider organizations that rely on Nuance PowerScribe for radiology
reporting and communications. Healthcare organizations that use Nuance PowerScribe,
a group that produces more that 50 percent of all radiology reports in
the U.S., can immediately leverage their existing investment and begin
sharing radiology reports along with images, such as X-rays, MRIs, CT
scans, EKGs, wound care images, dermatology images or any other type of
image. This simplifies secure health information exchange between
multiple providers, patients and disparate systems without costly and
time-consuming interfaces, CD production or the need to install
additional third-party systems.
“The challenge of sharing images with interpretive reports is something
we’ve heard about consistently from our customers and EHR partners, and
we know Nuance PowerShare Network will overcome this major obstacle,
helping physicians treat patients more efficiently and effectively,”
said Peter Durlach, senior vice president of marketing and strategy,
Nuance Communications. “This nationwide network, one that is fully
integrated into the EHR workflow and already connected to approximately
half of all clinicians producing diagnostic imaging information, is a
ground breaking solution that delivers immediate benefits at an
unprecedented scale to our healthcare system.”
“Integrated image and report sharing helps us deliver quality care and
drive down costs especially when patients transfer from one facility to
another. Whether at their desktop or on their mobile device, our
physicians can see the study that was done along with the interpretive
report, which provides the information they need to treat the patient
and avoid duplicate testing,” says Deborah
Gash, vice president and CIO, Saint. Luke’s Health System in Kansas
City. “By integrating this with our EHR, PowerShare will enable
physicians to manage inbound imaging through one point of access and
login. Physicians in our 11 hospitals and 100-mile radius referral
network see this cutting-edge technology as a way to deliver the highest
level of patient care,” she adds.
