September 26, 2007 — TeraMedica Healthcare Technology announced that the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore installed TeraMedica’s Evercore Clinical Information Manager (CIM) in its clinical research and radiation therapy clinics, including connection to its satellite facilities, as the hospital furthers clinical research and oncology treatment to improve patient care.
Evercore CIM integrates and manages patient-centric clinical content in the clinical research domain, including radiation oncology and radiation therapy (RT) DICOM information objects. CIM also incorporates all other associated Non-DICOM (RT) Clinical Content, such as that involved in treatment planning systems.
With several disparate systems in its radiation therapy department, and each system interpreting DICOM and Non-DICOM information differently, the facility needed a software program that would solve the data storage and transfer problems faced in the clinical research and oncology realm, indicated Jim Prekop, CEO of TeraMedica. The new IT infrastructure also sets a foundation for further research and an eventual gateway to the enterprise electronic medical records across the multiple campuses.
