ScImage Tool Delivers PACS to the EMR

October 12, 2009 – ScImage, an enterprise imaging and informatics company, has created a robust toolset for delivering PACS content to electronic medical records systems (EMR).

The company has already implemented its zero-footprint content delivery mechanism, PicomWeb, at several institutions where images, waveforms, final reports and other diagnostic documents are readily available to users of the EMR.

The secure URL-based interface delivers image pointers to the target application which, upon activation, automatically deliver the PicomWeb viewer and requested content. Users may simply browse to patient images and data for clinical review and access using standard image manipulation tools. Users may also switch to full diagnostic viewing with a single click from PicomWeb.

“The result is the creation of a physician portal that delivers images, reports, waveforms and documents to EMR users, on demand,” states Sai P. Raya, Ph.D., ScImage Founder and CEO. “Importantly, the content and relevant tools can quickly transition to full diagnostic mode for those users with the right credentials,” Dr. Raya, continued.
PicomWeb can be implemented as part of a PicomEnterprise deployment, as a unifying layer for multiple disparate systems, or as an embedded link in an existing EMR system. The result is a single point of entry for all of your physicians’ to access image and reporting information.

PicomWeb can authenticate users by means of common, open architecture methods such as Microsoft Active Directory. This will assist an already busy IT department by eliminating the need for a labor intensive installation for casual users and streamlines user management. More importantly, because image and reporting information is not stored on a local machine during access, HIPAA compliance becomes much easier.

PicomWeb represents a new level of image enablement and distribution for healthcare information systems and interoperability to facilitate improved patient care. Additional features include automatic routing of diagnostic reports and image archive query on demand.

“We believe that PicomWeb can benefit institutions who have already adopted an EMR and those who will be implementing one by delivering valuable content right to EMR from PACS,“ stated Sai P. Raya, Ph.D., ScImage Founder and CEO. “Moreover, IT managers and staff responsible for supporting enterprise-wide deployments will appreciate the simplicity of PicomWeb.”
