September 25, 2014 — Mallinckrodt announced the U.S. launch of the OptiSync data management system as a new technology in its Global Medical Imaging segment. The OptiSync system is designed to help healthcare professionals efficiently collect and analyze radiology data from when a patient undergoes a contrast media-enhanced computed tomography (CT) diagnostic imaging procedure.
The OptiSync system is used with the OptiVantage dual-head CT contrast delivery system, and allows users to verify and log patient and pharmaceutical information with the scan of a barcode. As injection data is collected, the OptiSync system transmits patient, drug, dose and administration information to HL7-based healthcare systems and automates patient record updates. By assembling a database that includes contrast media usage, spend, workflow and benchmarking across all users, scanners and facilities, the OptiSync system can help users identify areas where they can reduce errors, increase productivity or improve efficiency.
“The OptiSync data management system was created with patients and customers in mind,” said Dan Brague, Mallinckrodt vice president and general manager, Imaging – North America. “We are pleased to launch this important tool to help empower decision-making in radiology departments with easier data collection and more efficient contrast media management and usage.”
