Konica Minolta Exa Enterprise Imaging Delivers Intelligent Radiology Analytics

February 20, 2018 — At the 2018 annual meeting of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), March 5-9 in Las Vegas, Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. will demonstrate the infusion of intelligent analytics into its Exa Enterprise Imaging platform.The analytics package will enable customers to boost department productivity, maximize asset utilization and enhance the patient experience.

Shelly Middleton, vice president of healthcare information technology (IT) sales for Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas, said the company’s focus with the analytics package is to tie together consistent information from the beginning of the patient care episode all the way through to completion to help clinicians ensure the care provided is thorough and complete.

Exa’s Performance Dashboards provide information at a glance on daily exam volume, studies by type of imaging device and technologist, radiologist performance, referring physician patterns and more. Administrators and department managers can easily create their own customized reports to efficiently get the data that is most relevant for their practice or organization. Using the Intelligent Patient Scheduler, managers can identify gaps in their schedule so they can maximize asset utilization. The Custom Workflow Design Engine provides the ability to define the entire workflow process step-by-step based on a facility’s specific needs using simple drag-and-drop tools. The entire step-by-step process can be customized quickly and easily. Exa also facilitates the sharing of multispecialty medical images and reports via referring physician, patient and attorney portals. The platform enables outside facilities to safely access pertinent patient data via Image Exchange, which eliminates the need for sending or bringing image CDs.

Exa Enterprise Imaging solution offers

  • A diagnostic-quality zero footprint universal viewer for DICOM and non-DICOM images, including nuclear medicine and echocardiograms;
  • Server-side rendering for fast access to large files, such as 3-D Mammography,1 with no prefetching required (note: for digital mammography, a 5MP monitor is required per Mammography Quality Standards Act [MQSA] guidelines); and
  • Cybersecurity with no data transferred to or stored on workstations to minimize unwanted exposure to patient data.

For women’s health departments and clinics seeking to consolidate viewing, Exa Enterprise Imaging offers universal viewing of images from a single workstation. The Exa platform, comprised of multiple modules including picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), radiology information systems (RIS), electronic health records (EHR) and specialty viewers, can be used as an integrated solution or individually with a facility’s existing software investments, further enhancing an organization’s return on investment.

Middleton said that the modular platform enables Konica Minolta to rapidly implement advanced technologies and deliver innovative functionality, and also enables facilities to maximize their investments in healthcare IT while tapping into administrative reports that can help achieve maximum clinical and business efficiencies.

Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. will be exhibiting with Konica Minolta Business Solutions at HIMSS18.
