Viztek Debuts URL-Based EMR Integration for Opal-RAD

April 6, 2009 — Viztek released a Web-based interface with electronic medical record (EMR) systems for its family of PACS offerings.

Viztek’s advanced Opal-RAD PACS solutions will allow for the integration of images and related data with a full range of popular EMR applications, making the process more streamlined and cost-effective than the traditional custom coding, according to the company.

The new feature will enable access to PACS information directly through EMR worklists. Once users open a patient file, a single click will automatically launch the Viztek viewer and display the desired exam. According to Viztek, the new feature is particularly beneficial for the company’s specialty clinic customers, which will be increasingly focused on EMR functionality under the new government administration. In particular, it also is an important functionality for digital orthopedic sites, which often rely on an EMR to integrate with their PACS to provide comprehensive patient imaging information.

Opal-RAD's thin-client architecture requires only an Internet connection and browser to turn any standard PC into a diagnostic workstation, resulting in significant cost savings over proprietary PACS hardware. Open and standards-based, Opal-RAD seamlessly integrates images, reports and data from other hospital IT systems through DICOM, HL7 and related interfaces, in addition to easily sharing imaging data with EMRs.
