November 18, 2011 — DR Systems will exhibit its Unity v|Series RIS – along with the full complement of modular unity CVIS, PACS, and reporting options – at RSNA 2011. The new radiology information system (RIS) is both desktop and server virtualization-capable. It can be accessed from pre-existing picture archiving and communications system (PACS) or RIS workstations plus a wide range of mobile/non-mobile computing devices.
The Unity v|Series RIS is now available for use with any third-party PACS. It employs industry-standard methods for single sign-on and exam synchronization. A multi-site practice can employ a single unified worklist to launch and drive one or more PACS, or can launch the new reporting system from a third-party PACS.
Unity v|Series RIS features include:
- Integrated reporting suite. Comprehensive digital dictation and speech recognition reporting solution. Includes the ability to map data from DICOM structured reports into exam reports, eliminating duplicate data entry and streamlining workflow.
- Patient forms linked to exam types. RIS automatically presents the appropriate forms for the scheduled procedure.
- Peer review. Exceeds American College of Radiology (ACR) and Joint Commission accreditation requirements, ensuring continuous quality improvement of patient care. It also provides integrated peer review functionality, with physician-specific metrics.
- Critical results tracking. Tools for continuously monitoring and improving the timeliness of critical results reporting.
- Mammography reporting/tracking. Supports Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) workflow and data gathering requirements.
