1,100 Hospitals Select ScImage's Multidepartmental PACS

May 14, 2008 - Broadlane clients, consisting of approximately 1,100 hospitals, selected ScImage for a three-year contract to use its multi-department picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) for radiology, cardiology and other image-producing departments within a healthcare system.

This solution provides multiple departments and facilities the ability to create a unified workflow environment across departments and multi-site locations. The agreement is effective June 1, 2008 and will offer Broadlane clients an enterprise-wide imaging and information management solution using ScImage's PicomEnterprise.

The agreement offers Broadlane clients of approximately 1,100 hospitals, 450 radiology centers and 3,200 ambulatory care facilities across the U.S. the ability to acquire ScImage's PICOM solution under a unique selection of acquisition options. ScImage technology will provide Broadlane clients' facilities a significant operational cost savings by deploying a cohesive solution with a consistent interface, regardless of the department or facility using it. Broadlane clients will also be able to integrate image display functionality into their existing electronic medical record (EMR) solutions by delivering a pick list of studies to select from, a specific exam or an individual key image within the patient's medical record.

ScImage's Web server-based Enterprise PACS, employs a single database to organize, categorize, store and distribute a variety of exam specific information generated within multiple departments, or facilities, into a single image and information management system. This data can be in the form of DICOM and non-DICOM images, clinical reporting, physician dictations, ECG waveforms and even jpeg photos or mpeg videos. IHE workflow profiles for radiology, cardiac cath and echocardiography are supported and the solution easily integrates with existing information systems to reduce data entry errors. PicomEnterprise also delivers exam-specific visualization tools to the local PC for simultaneous, side-by-side review of ECGs, echocardiography studies, cardiac cath procedures, multi-slice CT, PET/CT, MRI, chest films and digital mammography.

In addition to PicomEnterprise, ScImage offers an off-site disaster recovery, business continuity and telemedicine solution called PicomOnline and a pay-as-you-go PACS solution called OnDemand TelePACS. ScImage also delivers interoperability infrastructure solutions designed for individual sites in need of occasional overflow reading or a large network of remote sites that use a centralized reading environment to complete exam reporting. This interoperability solution can be used in combination with an existing ScImage solution or with any third-party PACS.
