Hospital in Dubai Goes Live with Philips’ PACS

January 13, 2009 — Tawam Hospital, a leading medical institution in the Middle East, went live with Philips Healthcare’s new iSite Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), representing the first public hospital in the Middle East to implement iSite’s ‘fee per study’ model.

Under the agreement, the hospital pays a fee on a monthly basis to view, distribute and store medical images, rather than making a large payment for equipment up-front.

Tawam Hospital is affiliated with Johns Hopkins Medicine International and provides specialized medical services including radiotherapy, cardiac care, breast cancer screening and diabetes management. The hospital, the largest in Al Ain, also signed a reference site agreement with Philips earlier in the year.

Under the contract Philips will provide a 99.99 percent uptime PACS service, computed radiography systems and client workstations. The solution integrates with the hospital’s Cerner HIS/RIS, creating a paperless, filmless workflow for patients and care providers. In addition to being installed at the main hospital site, the iSite solution also connects two remote sites over a Wide Area Network. The volumetric reading tools (MIP, MPR, 3D) are delivered to the PACS workstation via Philips iSyntax technology, which brings advanced rendering performance and scalability without additional cost and complexities.
