Scimage, Philips Team Up For Coordinated, Efficient ECG Workflow

October 24, 2011 – As a result of the long-standing relationship between Philips Healthcare and ScImage Inc., the two companies are pleased to announce a newly developed integration option between ScImage’s PicomEnterprise picture archive and communications systems (PACS) and the Philips PageWriter TC series cardiographs. As a team, the two companies believe this interface will greatly simplify clinical electrocardiogram (ECG) workflow and reduce the complexity normally associated with custom integration.

This new bi-directional interface enhances productivity and reduces transcription errors during the ECG acquisition process by transmitting modality worklist from ScImage PACS directly to PageWriter TC cardiographs. Additionally, this collaborative interface makes the resulting ECGs available throughout the enterprise by direct uploading of ECGs from Philips PageWriter TC cardiographs into the ScImage PACS.

The companies broadened their working relationship that originally saw the integration of Philips’ QLab ultrasound software integrated within the ScImage PACS.

2-D and 3-D digital breast images

Since the widespread adoption of digital imaging and PACS, referring physicians seldom visit radiology reading rooms, substantially reducing a major source of feedback for radiologists. (Shown are 2-D and 3-D digital breast images.) A software module to be described April 5 at the SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium has been providing that feedback for radiologists interpreting breast images at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
