Philips and Microsoft Collaborate to Streamline Radiology Workflow

 Amalga

February 22, 2011 – Philips and Microsoft will collaborate to streamline the workflow of radiologists as they seek to build and understand the complete clinical context of a patient.

The companies will connect Microsoft Amalga, a data aggregation platform, with Philips’ iSite picture archiving and communication system (PACS). This will give radiologists the ability to view a complete set of a patient's data stored across the health enterprise alongside the patient's images. The ability to view DICOM and non-DICOM data in one place will reduce the time radiologists currently spend probing separate, disconnected information and allow them to focus more time on case review, analysis and diagnostics.

The companies will collaborate to configure, market and sell a connected solution that enables radiologists using the Philips iSite Radiology viewer to make a single click to access a patient's clinical data aggregated, delivered and displayed within Microsoft Amalga. Currently, a radiologist must start multiple clinical IT applications, log into each one, navigate to the specific patient and then click through multiple screens in each application to build a complete mental picture of the patient's history. With the connected solution, Microsoft Amalga will aggregate patient data from the hospital's multiple IT systems and deliver a unified view to the radiologist, eliminating the need to navigate separate applications.

It aggregates health data across disconnected systems in the health enterprise and empowers users to analyze and explore context-rich information about their patients or departments, on demand. Philips iSite PACS is an image management and distribution solution that gives any physician in the enterprise access to full fidelity images within three seconds.
