April 3, 2009 — Laitek is debuting at HIMSS 2009 a new range of new capabilities for its Migratek v. 2 Advanced Migration Services that reportedly makes the migration process more transparent and efficient than ever before.
Migratek is designed to provide accurate and affordable migration of DICOM and related imaging data from a legacy PACS archive to a new image management system at speeds five to ten times faster than competing conventional solutions.
Features including a fully functional DICOM exception repository for all legacy images and exams that fail migration into the destination PACS archive for a variety of technical faults. This stand-alone repository is delivered to the imaging site for convenient post-migration processing, review and data recovery. Additionally, enhanced rule-matching tools provide increased flexibility and speed during the migration process while improving data accuracy. Laitek supports unique data routing into specialized review and work lists available in the destination PACS. These capabilities allow end users to retire the legacy PACS faster with the confidence that workflow can continue uninterrupted, according to the company.
The Migratek v2 system reads, processes and transmits medical imaging data directly from a legacy database and storage media to a destination PACS archive, eliminating time-consuming DICOM query/export tools used in conventional migration systems. As information is extracted from the existing PACS archive, any proprietary data is translated to standard DICOM 3.0 format. This includes the conversion, or morphing, of non-compliant DICOM tags into compliant formats for the new PACS.
