October 2, 2013 — Visage Imaging Inc. (Visage) released version 7.1.4 of the Visage 7 Enterprise Imaging Platform and Visage Ease version 1.4.2. Visage 7 enables enterprise imaging with fast, thin-client, server-side processing technology as well as simple mobile access to imaging results via Visage Ease.
Visage 7.1.4 offers enhanced integration and enterprise scale with third-party workflow solutions. Visage 7 supports bi-directional context management when interacting with third-party worklist and radiology information systems (RIS). It can automatically send notifications to third-party systems when a user opens an additional studies for display in the Visage 7 client. Additionally, the Visage 7 client automatically responds to changes requested by third party worklist and RIS systems. When integrated with the Medicalis Professional Solution workflow platform, additional prior studies launched in Visage 7 result in the display of relevant patient information in Medicalis Professional Solution, and similarly, the selection of additional studies for viewing in Medicalis Professional Solution result in the additional prior studies automatically displayed in Visage 7.
Visage 7 now supports token-based image access via encrypted links embedded in radiology reports. When integrated with RIS and/or electronic medical records (EMR) solutions that support this capability, authorized referring physicians who have access to reports can simply click on the links in order to securely view their patient’s images whether or not they have a Visage 7 user account. This capability is currently available for Visage RIS customers in Australia.
Visage has also added new usability features to Visage Ease, which provides authorized healthcare providers mobile access to imaging results using iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch iOS devices. Visage Ease 1.4.2 offers many new features including gesture-based refresh of queries, DICOM window/level (W/L) presets, lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP)/Active Directory authentication and voice memo attachments. Once voice memos have been uploaded via Visage Ease, all privileged users can access voice memos from the Visage 7 thin-client, helping to improve provider communication and collaboration.
Visage Ease is not a medical device and must not be used for diagnosis.
