Comprehensive enterprise solution integrates clinical team collaboration, visible light imaging and EHR for improved pediatric patient outcomes

Nicklaus Children's Hospital Launches Enterprise Mobile Clinical Collaboration Platform

December 17, 2018 — Enterprise imaging health information technology (IT) provider Dicom Systems Inc. announced a new joint deployment with clinical collaboration mobile app WinguMD for Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami, Fla. The collaboration will help Nicklaus Children’s better integrate clinical communications, particularly image sharing, over mobile platforms.

As part of its technology integration efforts, Nicklaus Children's sought to implement a secure, centralized platform to capture and share clinical photos inside their electronic health record (EHR). WinguMD provided sharing and indexing of serial clinical photos across care teams as well as comparison with pathology, wound care and other imaging. Unifier by Dicom Systems served as the integration engine for workflow and interoperability.

Elise Hermes, chief nursing information officer for Nicklaus Children's Health System said, "Nicklaus Children's is excited about the communication tools and interdisciplinary collaboration provided by WinguMD. Prior to deploying the application, clinical photos were stored in multiple devices using numerous manual processes. Quality, continuity, security and integration were our key drivers and intended outcomes. WinguMD is a single and seamless solution for clinical photos that answers the needs of our care teams."

The benefits of Nicklaus Children's Enterprise Mobile Clinical Collaboration Platform include:

  • Easy-to-use social media-style platform reports on patient status to all members of the care team;

  • Integrates encounter-based imaging, chat and mobile device clinical photos into EHR and viewer;

  • Features medical-grade photo app with capture, comparison and annotation of medical photos series;

  • DICOMweb integration provided Nicklaus Children's with their choice of enterprise viewers;

  • Unifier DICOM Modality Worklist (DMWL) by Dicom Systems integrates visible light imaging, DICOM, HL7 and non-DICOM imaging data; and

  • Plans for hospital-sanctioned iPads preloaded with enterprise WinguMD and Dicom Systems solution for all new residents to support culture of compliance and more seamless workflow.

Recent research shows growing interest in this emerging solutions category. Frost & Sullivan noted the adoption of visible light imaging modalities across several image-using and image-producing specialties was gaining traction across healthcare organizations. Meanwhile, KLAS Research released a 2018 Enterprise Imaging report that listed adopting and standardizing encounter-based imaging and visible light images as having the greatest impact on workflow success.

Dicom Systems Executive Vice President Florent Saint-Clair said the company was able to leverage Nicklaus Children’s existing IT ecosystem for the deployment with zero downtime impact on existing infrastructure.

Dicom Systems and WinguMD exhibited in their respective booths during the 104th Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting, Nov. 25-30 in Chicago.
