May 28, 2010 - With zero-download technology referring physicians with Web access no longer are required to download an application to view medical images.
A new platform, Unity Z-Series, zero-download technology. The Z-Series eliminates the need to download an application or ActiveX controls before viewing imaging exams and reports or performing ordering and scheduling.
The Z-Series includes two products: Zero Download Ambassador (ZDA) for clinical review and Zero Download Scheduler (ZDS) for scheduling and ordering exams. ZDS is currently available in Unity Release 8. ZDA will be available in the pending Unity Release 9.
The application is designed to deliver a high level of functionality in a zero-download, Web-based environment. By eliminating the need for IT support and the need to download applets at different locations, referring physicians and specialists who work in various, disparate IT environments, can easily access images and reports. Both systems are created to provide a more efficient workflow for doctors.
Attendees can see a live demonstrations of both the Unity Z-Series WebPACS and eMix in DR Systems' booth 119 at the annual meeting of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM), June 3 to 6, at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis.
At SIIM, DR Systems will also be exhibiting e-Mix, its new low-cost, cloud-computing service. eMix, which stands for electronic medical information exchange, enables images and reports to be easily and securely pushed to institutions, patients, physicians and electronic medical records (EMR) via the Internet. This interoperable, vender-neutral technology eliminates the need for the provider facility to burn CDs, print films or fax reports. Like the Z-Series, it is designed to help facilitate the trend toward a universal EMR.
