RALEIGH, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/13/14 -- (SIIM Booth: #323) -- Viztek, the leading provider of complete digital software and hardware diagnostic imaging solutions, will showcase its new Exa EHR platform for imaging informatics professionals at the upcoming Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) annual meeting in Long Beach, Cal., May 15-17. Viztek is delivering the first EHR that is embedded into PACS, enabling radiologists to share and exchange data as required by Meaningful Use.
"Considering that the majority of PACS today don't have the database necessary to store and present data critical to meaningful use requirements, the Viztek Exa was built with functionalities that are more valuable than ever for forward-thinking radiologists preparing for the oncoming stages of Meaningful," said Steve Deaton, vice president, Viztek. "Viztek is continuing to build relationships with customers based on our true, proactive innovation, to ensure they have the components necessary to meet the demands of a changing healthcare landscape before those mandates arrive."
Because it is embedded into the PACS, Exa has the ability to store data transmitted through interfaces and cleanly display the information for radiologists, allowing them to view a patient's complete medical history, which can include important factors such as a family history of disease. Access to this patient information enables a more informed diagnosis while also allowing radiologists and their facilities to meet Meaningful Use requirements for exchanging and sharing data.
Other benefits of the Exa EHR platform include:
- Single Workstation: Viztek enables radiologists to view any study -- CT, MRI, x-ray, mammography, PET and more -- and have full capabilities from a single workstation.
- Thin Client Server - With the Viztek Exa server hardware being thinner than ever and requiring fewer devices, the process of delivering necessary updates is expedited -- better serving customers by enabling Viztek to respond to their needs quickly. The benefits trickle into the financial bottom line for facilities as well through the thinner hardware and efficient updates leading to lower overall maintenance costs and staff resources necessary to support IT needs.
The entirely web-based Viztek Exa is the first platform-agnostic EHR solution capable of full functionality at the browser-based level regardless of the operating system or device used, and it efficiently weaves together the company's established expertise in practice management, billing, order entry, PACS, radiology reports, patient portals and more.
Advances in Breast Imaging
In addition to showcasing the Viztek Exa, the company will also be participating in a SIIM panel titled "Problems and Solutions in Breast Tomosynthesis." Kevin Borden, director of implementation services at Viztek, will join the panel to discuss the benefits provided by smart compression in breast tomosynthesis and highlight the necessary IT improvements, such as multi-modality reading capabilities in workstations, which can greatly aid radiologists in their work. The mammography capabilities within the Viztek Exa solution, for example, include a timeline list that provides ease-of-use and shorter times for convenient access to prior exams.
"We are leading the way in breast diagnosis, and radiology in general, by empowering radiologists with the tools and abilities necessary to make their lives better, so they can offer patients the same," added Deaton.
