Radiology Protocols management platform, GE Health Cloud

March 11, 2016 — Radiology Protocols announced that its platform will be added to the GE Health Cloud suite of applications when the Cloud goes live later this year. GE Health Cloud radiology department customers will be able to access and use Radiology Protocols’ sophisticated protocol management platform, providing increased productivity and improving quality of exams.

The GE Health Cloud includes a suite of enterprise imaging applications and provides a robust platform for software vendors to deliver healthcare applications across the healthcare enterprise including large, complex integrated delivery networks (IDNs).

Radiology Protocols provides a customizable, scalable, HIPAA-secure hosted solution to document, organize and tailor imaging protocols. Its platform also allows providers to share best practices across their systems, instantaneously and seamlessly, eliminating paper-based files for this critical information.

Radiology Protocols’ platform is vendor-agnostic, allowing customers to utilize the system across different equipment modalities and vendor platforms.

John Kalafut, imaging outcomes and solutions leader at GE Healthcare, commented, “The addition of Radiology Protocols to the GE Health Cloud adds significant value for our customers. Radiology Protocols delivers much-needed quality improvement tools that imaging customers around the world need; a method to define, organize and maintain imaging protocols, for all modality types, on a centralized, Web-based platform. As a vendor-agnostic system, it can be used to manage the protocol process by all of our customers which is a great advantage for everyone.”
