Konica Minolta Highlights Urgent Care Solutions at UCAOA 2017 Fall Conference

October 31, 2017 — Urgent care is one of the fastest growing segments of the healthcare industry, delivering convenient and affordable care options for patients suffering from an acute episode of illness or injury or requiring ongoing primary or specialty care. Konica Minolta Healthcare highlighted its portfolio of imaging and healthcare information technology solutions for urgent care at the 2017 Fall Conference of the Urgent Care Association of America (UCAOA), Oct. 26-28 in Anaheim, Calif.

The total number of urgent care centers continues to increase annually, and many are expanding their scope of services to include X-ray imaging and healthcare information technology (IT). On average, patients receiving care at an urgent care center see a provider within 30 minutes, significantly less time than an emergency room visit and often at a fraction of the cost.1

Konica Minolta showcased several advancements in imaging technologies for digital radiography (DR), ultrasound and healthcare IT.

  • Optimized for small spaces, the DR Straight Arm with an AeroDR Detector is ideal for general radiography in urgent care centers, according to the company. It provides excellent bone and soft-tissue detail across an array of imaging views to accommodate patients who may be sitting, standing, lying on a table or confined to a wheelchair;
  • The Sonimage HS1 compact ultrasound system delivers high image quality and needle visualization to support rapid, confident decisions at the point-of-care. A simplified eight-button console and intuitive touch screen combine with focused musculoskeletal (MSK) exam presets to minimize the learning curve. Enhanced signal penetration, increased color flow sensitivity and improved resolution deliver detailed tissue differentiation, enabling clinicians to detect structures as small as several hundred microns; and
  • The web-based Exa PACS (picture archiving and communication system) provides speed and workflow efficiency with Server-Side Rendering and full diagnostic toolsets and viewing capabilities from any computer with the diagnostic Zero Footprint Viewer. The scalable Exa PACS includes a real-time performance dashboard and custom workflow engine designed to meet the varying needs of urgent care centers.
