June 12, 2007 - Royal Philips Electronics announced that its iSite PACS are now available with optional communications tools from Primordial LLC, offering customers communications tools from Primordial LLC specially designed to foster process efficiencies and increase collaboration within radiology departments using iSite.
Custom-developed tools from Primordial use iSite’s open integration Application Program Interface (API) and provide added functionality designed to enhance user experience and promote improved sharing of clinical information and ideas in the radiology workspace.
This suite of tools includes RadConnect, RadReview and RadMetrix. RadConnect is an integrated instant messaging and email program that ensures radiologists are in continual contact with other care cycle providers. RadReview minimizes the time required to implement the American College of Radiology-mandated peer review process by providing the tools to implement this process within iSite. Finally, RadMetrix is an information tool that delivers a real-time, dashboard overview of the radiology department’s exam metrics, such as throughput, turnaround times and trending.
