U of M Picks McKesson for PACS Replacement

March 13, 2008 - The University of Michigan Health System selected McKesson’s Horizon Medical Imaging PACS, migrating 2 million archived studies into the new system, including three hospitals and nine clinical centers.

The Horizon Medical Imaging system can reportedly manage large data sets with adaptive image loading and 3D workstation integration, providing a one-stop working environment where radiologists do not have to transition from multiple workstations to complete their studies. Replacing a paper-driven dictation process, the system aims to improve report turnaround times.

The imaging system works to enable radiologists to launch dictation capabilities with one keystroke during report evaluation, and voice recognition technology turns words to text as the doctor speaks. The Horizon Medical Imaging system also allows hospitals and clinics to acquire, distribute and archive medical images and diagnostic reports across the enterprise. The system integrates images from multiple modalities with clinical patient data and provides referring physicians with patient images as part of a comprehensive medical record.

A simultaneous go-live of the PACS systems is expected in early summer 2008.
