The syngo Suite offers advanced RIS, PACS and processing in a comprehensive package for all imaging needs in radiology, cardiology and other -ologies. It comprises syngo Workflow, which unites users with processes, syngo Imaging that improves usability, speeds load time and leverages integration, and syngo Dynamics, a multi-modality, dynamic image review, diagnosis and archiving system.
With a variety of archiving storage options, the scalable syngo Suite is applicable for offices, imaging clinics, hospitals and multifacility enterprise health systems. Optional interfacing to clinical or hospital information systems allows the distribution of results in a variety of formats and helps facilities create filmless and paperless environments. The established integration of RIS, PACS and processing matches the radiological and cardiology workflow, for simple operation, faster workflow, or easy integration in the technical environment at hospitals
By working closely with NextGen Healthcare Siemens has extended the value of its proven RIS/PACS, enabling a new and advanced level of interoperability between image management and practice management to meet the unique healthcare information technology needs of diagnostic imaging centers and specialty practices. For practices that provide clinical services beyond diagnostic imaging, Siemens also provides NextGen’s image-enabled ambulatory EMR, delivered with robust clinical content for specialties such as cardiology, orthopedics, and oncology.
By combining the strengths of Siemens syngo Suite RIS/PACS with NextGen Healthcare solutions, Siemens integrates and enhances both clinical and financial workflow processes to help streamline scheduling and results reporting, optimize revenue and cost management, and enhance the patient and referring physician experience across the continuum of care.
