Enterprise System Integration Connects Disparate PACS, RIS

Compressus provides the MEDxConnect System version 2.5,a suite of enterprise systems integration software that features a full integration with GE Centricity PACS and significant enhancements to the company’s comprehensive interoperability solutions package.

The solution provides seamless connectivity across disparate HIS, RIS, PACS and related information systems and provides automated interoperability, enabling organizations with disparate multivendor system function as one virtual enterprise. MEDxConnect indexes, integrates and routes all relevant patient medical information in real time, increasing patient safety, improving physician productivity and supporting practice expansion.

According to physicians using the system, the 2.5 release continues to improve access to critical patient information as referred to in a recent report in the Journal of Digital Imaging, which cites lack of access to pertinent clinical patient data may be a critical element that limits the accuracy of the radiologist’s diagnostic decision-making process.

Supporting a thin client environment, the MEDxConnect version 2.5, offers full integration with GE Centricity PACS. Featuring a collaborative development and testing process, MEDxConnect is reportedly the only interoperability system integrated with GE Centricity. Compressus has also completed integrations with Philips iSite and Merge’s eFilm PACS.

MEDxConnect version 2.5 also includes full integration with PowerScribe speech recognition software. The Addendum Enhancement feature builds on MEDxConnect’s single global Virtual Worklist solution that enables users to automatically pre-fetch all types of patient information, including historical and demographic data, prior reports and images, and physicians’ notes from disparate information and imaging systems, irrespective of vendor, and distribute it to the appropriate physicians in real-time. In addition to pre-fetching the user-configured number and type of studies and patient information, the System now also provides a list of other data that is available should the physician want it to make their read. Users now have the option to permanently attach this new data to the original study packet, ensuring that it is available for referring physicians or future reads.

Other new features include the Order Management Module OM2 module, which automatically creates an electronic order in cases where there is no RIS. Needed for other systems in the Enterprise, such as VR, to acknowledge and process the exam packet, the OM2 now creates the order in HL7. The Study forward feature enables users to pass studies to specialists or colleagues for consultations. Previously, studies could not be forwarded or passed once they were claimed. Version 2.5 also expanded the ability for groups to customize routing and worklist rules through general, modality and subspecialty worklists. The enhanced ability to share studies, assures optimal sub-specialization and enhanced workflow.
