November 29, 2016 — Philips Healthcare announced the commercial availability of its high-performance IntelliSpace Universal Data Manager at the 2016 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 27-Dec. 1 in Chicago.
IntelliSpace Universal Data Manager is a scalable, secure, interoperable data management solution that supports healthcare enterprises in organizing large data sets, including millions of images and other data from multiple sources, and quickly delivering them to virtually any clinician throughout their health network. The software complements the Philips IntelliSpace healthcare informatics portfolio, including the IntelliSpace PACS (picture archiving and communication system) radiology workflow management applications and IntelliSpace Portal advanced visualization and quantification platform.
According to Philips, today's conventional medical image archive solutions focus on multi-vendor compatibility but often compromise on performance and scalability. IntelliSpace Universal Data Manager allows for integration and universal management and scalability to meet healthcare providers current and future needs, helping them to deliver better, more holistic patient care without compromising on system performance.
The software delivers enhanced image lifecycle support, configurable storage options and full scalability, while also meeting the performance demands of larger radiology departments. Many healthcare organizations have challenges managing the millions of images and other data that are often stored in decentralized systems and infrastructures from multiple vendors across many clinical departments and locations. These images range from X-ray, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans made by their radiology, cardiology and oncology departments to the digital photos taken by dermatology and plastic surgery as part of a consultation. With the IntelliSpace Universal Data Manager, radiologists and clinicians can access relevant multi-discipline medical images for a more complete and integrated view of their patients' medical conditions over time. The data management solution works with multi-vendor imaging modalities and storage systems and supports medical imaging standards to leverage existing investments.
The Universal Data Manager will leverage the capabilities of Philips HealthSuite with the aim to further expand its features and possibilities for enterprise-wide, and between hospital enterprises, medical image accessibility.
