GE Healthcare Puts Big Data on Display

Unveils PACS with new series navigator and usability features, extends value of cloud archive

June 11, 2012 – As the explosion of big data continues to transform imaging department workflow, the consolidation of disparate picture archiving and communication system (PACS) data across the enterprise is helping to simplify large scale image management. At SIIM, GE Healthcare is introducing new enhancements designed to improve how radiologists view, navigate, and process big data sets with Centricity PACS 4.0 (Centricity PACS 4.0 will be available for sale in early Q3, 2012). The new product release continues to ensure other departments and locations can seamlessly connect to PACS through the Centricity Enterprise Archive, cloud-enabled, vendor neutral archive technology that stores petabytes of data for thousands of GE customers worldwide.

Radiology departments continue to face pressure to reach higher levels of productivity and quality with shrinking reimbursements. Department directors and IT leaders are both keenly aware that imaging performance depends on simplified workflow and rapid access to large volumes of big data. Centricity PACS 4.0 satisfies all of these needs by delivering an intuitive user experience, streamlined mammography views, and Windows 7 support. The release is designed to make radiologists’ lives easier and deliver images to any desktop or mobile device at any time, wherever an internet connection is present.

The new usability features with Centricity PACS 4.0 include:

Navigator with Snap Tool and Timeline – Delivers the ability to quickly and easily drag and drop a series into a monitor region while enhancing workflow and offering multiple options for display such as always on, pin to location, and more.

Single-Click Save – Uses a quick save presentation state to save and apply a presentation state with an auto-generated label and description. No other user interaction is needed.

“Lights off” UI Theme – Decreases eye fatigue and improves reading comfort by offering high contrast icons in reading rooms with dimmer lighting.

Centricity Enterprise Archive streamlines archiving of “multi-ology” images, huge datasets, diagnostic reports, and other clinical information, delivering a universal clinical content repository. As such it brings to all institutions and users a way to easily get access to consolidated patient data, going beyond a classical vendor neutral archiving solution. Regional cloud services built on Centricity Enterprise Archive service billions of patient exams per year.
