Konica Minolta Healthcare Awarded Healthcare IT Agreement for Exa With Premier

November 15, 2017 – Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. has been awarded a group purchasing agreement for healthcare information technology (IT) with Premier. Effective Jan. 1, 2018, the new three-year agreement allows Premier members, in both acute and non-acute settings, to take advantage of special pricing and terms pre-negotiated by Premier for the Exa platform.

Exa’s custom workflow engine design and advanced toolsets make it an ideal solution across a broad array of imaging services, according to Konica Minolta, from the enterprise to specialty-based clinics. The Exa platform is comprised of multiple modules including picture archiving and communication system (PACS), radiology information system (RIS), electronic health record (EHR) and specialty viewers, supporting digital breast tomosynthesis and cardiovascular imaging. The Exa modules can be used together as an integrated solution or individually with a facilities existing software investments. It offers:

  • A diagnostic-quality zero footprint universal viewer and vendor neutral archive for DICOM and non-DICOM images;
  • Server-Side Rendering for fast access to large files, such as 3-D mammography, with no prefetching required; and
  • Cybersecurity, with no data transferred to or stored on workstations to minimize unwanted exposure to patient data.

The Exa platform was designed to enable each site to design its own preferred imaging workflow, very simply, with 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 while also enabling outside facilities to safely access pertinent patient data via Image Exchange, which eliminates the need for sending or bringing image CDs. The platform also features a custom workflow engine design and reporting dashboard. With the Performance Dashboards, facilities can measure daily exam volume, radiologist performance and referring physicians ordering preferences. 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.
