ETIAM-Connect Speeds Outside Images Direct to the Point-of-Care
ETIAM-Connect is a sophisticated analytics dashboard (or functionality) that tracks enterprise image activity, including volume and destination of outside images, movement of images within the hospital and external image sharing. In addition, for outside images entering the enterprise, ETIAM also introduces enhanced automated reconciliation of patient identifiers to seamlessly incorporate outside images in an internal picture archive and communications system (PACS).
The only solution of its kind, ETIAM-Connect manages images from beyond the enterprise as well as caters to the demand for both internal and external images from departments beyond radiology. The new promotional theme, Direct to the Point-of-Care . . . Outside Images Seamlessly Delivered, succinctly sums up the functionality of ETIAM’s flagship technology.
With ETIAM-Connect, all medical images entering a facility on CD and DVD can be directly transferred from the clinical department involved to the enterprise PACS or other IT system accessible by all clinicians, with a complete management and automation of patient information reconciliation. The system also handles non-standard dugutal imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) such as iSite, Amicas and SCImage images.
If desired, the institution can decide to import into the PACS only select studies and to temporarily store others on a Web-accessible local ETIAM server, where they can be accessed by all clinicians as needed. This enables broad image access without storing images of patients seen on a consultative basis only.
ETIAM-Connect provides full HIPAA compliance of images and related information and enables restriction of access to designated external nodes without any reconfiguration of internal hospital IT infrastructure.
ETIAM-Connect also provides a URL for uploading DICOM images and associated documents for electronic sharing of information from beyond the enterprise. An ETIAM Agent gateway can be installed in regular hospital partner sites to provide a proxy enabling direct PACS-to-PACS communication.
Beyond image communication, ETIAM-Connect also provides a complete solution for bidirectional information exchange including routing, messaging, workflow, directory, logs and statistics management.
