February 25, 2008 - At HIMSS 2008, RamSoft released the PowerServer Lite, an entry-level version of its Web-based PowerServer PACS starting at $14,000.
This PACS is meant to accommodate the financial crunch facing imaging facilities, said the company. The PowerServer Lite is designed for facilities that need a fully functional PACS but don’t require all the added features of a higher-end system. PowerServer Lite can be integrated with HL7, DICOM and HIPAA.
RamSoft's online training program is designed to be a cost-efficient model for facilities to train staff without the costs of bringing a trainer onsite. After the eLearning training sessions, facility staff has access to a library of self-paced interactive training seminars that they can use to review basic features, or upgrade their skills by learning the advanced functions of PowerServer Lite, said RamSoft.
PowerServer Lite reportedly runs on a single server and database. The licensing model behind PowerServer Lite is designed to enable users to install clinical workstations on any number of machines and allows for an unlimited number of users.
PowerServer Lite is Web-based and accessible from anywhere with an Internet connection. Because it utilizes RamSoft's proprietary bandwidth load distribution and study push technology, readings can be performed with no latency or wait periods, said the company.
According to RamSoft, PowerServer Lite’s upgrade path allows for a seamless transition to RamSoft's PowerServer PACS or PowerServer RIS/PACS solutions.
Once is use, the system is reportedly self-maintaining and does not require IT staff to regularly monitor or actively perform maintenance tasks.
