February 25, 2015 — Kennedy Health has selected Mach7 Technologies’ vendor neutral archive (VNA), Enterprise Imaging Platform and zero-footprint universal Clinical Viewer. The selection caps a year-long intensive vendor evaluation.

Kennedy Health encompasses three acute care hospitals and ambulatory campuses across southern New Jersey. It serves as a principle teaching hospital and a partner with major regional networks, including Penn Cancer Network and Jefferson Neuroscience Network.

With hundreds of thousands of cardiology and radiology diagnostic imaging studies performed annually and a growing network of health services, Kennedy Health needed a robust enterprise imaging platform to seamlessly integrate its multiple imaging systems, consolidate storage, and interface with its existing health records systems and portals.

“As our enterprise has grown, our vision for enterprise-wide image management has evolved,” commented Mike Archer, associate vice president, Network Services, Kennedy Health. “We’re redefining our enterprise imaging strategy and we sought to partner with a company whose technology would not only support our clinical and business goals, but would give us the foundation we need to power our long-term vision.”

“Mach7 delivered on an outstanding reputation,” added Archer. “They provide a comprehensive imaging platform that allows us to begin the process of deconstructing PACS [picture archive and communication system]. In addition, they provided a team of professionals with the expertise to understand and advance our enterprise imaging strategy.”

Implementing Mach7 Enterprise Imaging Platform will provide Kennedy Health:

  • Consolidation and optimization of isolated clinical data silos – Kennedy Health can efficiently consolidate image storage and patient data from more than a dozen clinical systems and make better use of unused storage capability.
  • EHR image enablement – Mach7 will image-enable Kennedy’s electronic health record (EHR) system, along with Kennedy’s patient and physician portals.
  • Universal viewing, access, and sharing – Clinical staff can view patient files including Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) and non-DICOM images, audio and video without an external application requirement. Mach7’s zero-footprint universal Clinical Viewer runs on desktops, laptops, and mobile devices including tablets and smartphones.
