February 21, 2014 — ScImage announced availability of a Master Patient Index (MPI) translator that provides healthcare professionals diagnostic imaging data residing in disparate systems, often located at unrelated facilities.
PICOM365 uses an end-to-end image transfer with an adaptive translator. The MPI translator provides a foundation for interoperability, offering image sharing and collaboration. This intelligent engine pulls and pushes images across multiple facilities and manages a clinical workflow with comprehensive reading packages.
When a new imaging order comes into PICOM365 from any facility, it triggers an event in the translation logic engine. The translation engine makes the decision based on an existing knowledge base and the latest information from all connected sites. It then automatically pulls relevant priors from all facilities and makes the prior exams ready at the originating facility. All this happens before the current exam reaches the local picture archive and communication systems (PACS). When the reading physician opens a new exam for reading, prior exams from one or more external facilities appear in the viewer. Every time a new mapping is formulated, it adds that information to the knowledge base, and the system keeps learning.
