Amicas demonstrated Vision Series PACS Version 5.5 at DHIMS 2008. Version 5.5 introduces enhancements to the RealTime Worklist, including role-based workflow management, said the company. Also included are extended Vision Watch reporting capabilities and new advanced high availability options.
Role-based workflow management makes it possible to create custom workflows for everyone involved in the radiology round trip. For the radiologist, this means optimized reading patterns and enhanced communication. For the technologist, this means instantaneous awareness of where patients are in the imaging process. For the referring physician, this means quicker results and better service.
The company also highlighted RadStream, a workflow solution developed and implemented at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, allowing for the automation and documentation of critical results communication and the prioritization of imaging exams based on a “most likely to interrupt” method.
