May 7, 2014 — DR Systems will participate on a panel at the 2014 annual meeting of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM), to be held May 15-17 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, Calif.
Florent Saint-Clair, vice president of corporate development and general manager for eMix, DR Systems’ cloud-based electronic medical information exchange solution, will be a panelist at a vendor tie-in session called “Cloud Storage – Is Your Future Cloudy?” The session will discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with the fast adoption of cloud storage for medical records and images, as well as “the technological and operational concerns about the use of cloud storage for medical records.”
The session will take place on Friday, May 16, in the Exhibit Hall B – Innovation Theater.
Also at the SIIM conference, DR Systems will be exhibiting the following products:
- DR Systems Unity enterprise imaging solution;
- eMix cloud-based electronic medical information exchange;
- eHR certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT) for Meaningful Use; and
- Health Companion certified patient portal.
The DR Systems Unity solution is a comprehensive, fully integrated approach to medical imaging that includes all imaging modalities and specialties, such as radiology, cardiology, pathology, orthopedics and women’s health. Encompassing the entire imaging workflow process, the Unity includes RIS (radiology information system), CVIS (cardiovascular information system), PACS (picture archiving and communications system) and reporting modules. DR Systems will be highlighting its new features including ECG (electrocardiogram), Z3D enhancements and calcium scoring.
eMix, a cloud-based solution for image sharing and report delivery, will demonstrate its new Instant Sender solution. Instant Sender allows any patient, doctor or facility to quickly and confidentially deliver medical imaging exams, reports and other medical information to any recipient. No setup, registration or contract is required. The recipient can view images and information using a zero-download viewer, or route to a PACS.
eHR will also be on demonstration. The eHR for Meaningful Use system provides a simple cloud-based and vendor-neutral solution for eligible professionals to comply with Meaningful Use objectives. To date, DR Systems has enrolled more than 2,500 physicians in the EHR incentive program.
DR Systems has also partnered with Health Companion, a 2014 ONC-HIT certified EMR (electronic medical records) for secure patient messaging and patient engagement. Health Companion provides an enterprise patient portal that enables healthcare organizations to standardize on a single patient engagement platform across multiple EMRs, to improve operational efficiencies and increase patient satisfaction
Health Companion President Kevin Whiteley said, “We provide significant value to providers and healthcare organizations with a real-time compiled report to population health and wellness compliance, secure patient messaging, Web-based pre-registration and delivery of medical reports, including secure medical imaging results. Health Companion securely transports over 600,000 patient records each month.”
