April 3, 2015 — Digisonics will showcase its latest offerings to streamline reporting workflow and improve overall turnaround times at this year’s Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference in Chicago.

Digisonics structured reporting solutions offer integration with advanced quantification and image analysis software vendors such as Philips, GE, Medis and INVIA, and voice recognition systems such as Nuance Powerscribe for streamlined workflow. A single mouse click launches the third-party advanced image analysis software directly from a clinical study on the Digisonics workstation. The post-processed images may be stored as AVI or DICOM files to Digisonics or other picture archive and communication systems (PACS) for further review or long-term archiving. The voice recognition system integration enables clinicians to dictate their study findings as they normally would, with the summary automatically sent to the Digisonics structured report, improving their workflow efficiency. 

Clinicians are encouraged to Bring Your Own Device (BOYD) for use with WebView 4.0, a universal viewer application. This application addresses the emerging mobile workflow requirements in healthcare by providing zero-footprint image and report review from HTML5-supported browsers and devices including PC, Mac, iPads and tablets.  There is no need for ActiveX or other plugins and no patient health information is retained on the viewing device.

DigiConnect enables users to seamlessly launch third-party systems such as PACS, electronic medical records/hospital information systems (EMR/HIS) and ECG management software directly from an active patient exam within the Digisonics workstation. Clinicians benefit from the convenience of a single sign-on as user credentials and patient information are passed directly to the third-party systems.

DigiServ is a multi-site server that provides storage and communication management for the most complex healthcare system. The server provides real-time communication between all hospital sites while maintaining patient reports on an independent server at each site and in DigiServ’s Main Data Center. Once a study has been finalized at a local site, it is distributed to all of the other sites within the DigiServ environment and a copy is maintained on the local server until the study is safely archived in the Main Data Center. Other features include a comprehensive auto-restore function and an automatic reconciliation process for transmitting DICOM studies between sites.
