ScImage presents sophisticated multi-site workflow engine

Workflow engine virtually eliminates user dispatch requirements for routing while providing automated, rules-based delivery of the current exam with relevant prior images

Nov. 21, 2012 -- Spectrum Medical in Portland, ME, like many other radiology practices, provides primary radiology reading services for multiple hospitals across southern Maine.

Following a two-year effort to create an intelligent workflow channel between existing PACS at client facilities, Spectrum administration sought a third party to help create an efficient and cost effective network to help meet their reading obligations.

Typical challenges Spectrum met with included exam routing automation based on business rules rather than having a dedicated dispatcher manually sort and forward exams; conflicting patient identifiers constantly moving between disparate systems; capturing relevant prior images from various PACS at contract sites and more importantly, capturing and presenting relevant prior reports for the patients’ exams.

ScImage installed its flagship PicomEnterprise PACS, as an intermediary workflow engine to manage the acquisition and dissemination of new exams, prior images and prior reports. All of the client hospitals and the radiology group practice were able to continue using their existing PACS which helped protect their investment in these systems.
