Opal-EHR, a meaningful use- (MU-) certified radiology information system (RIS), will debut at RSNA 2012. It brings a full range of electronic health record (EHR) functionality to freestanding radiology clinics, while serving as a sophisticated RIS in hospital installations. The new application supports complete EHR certification for ambulatory care facilities. In any facility, it enables more effective management of schedules based on timeframes for insurance authorizations, procedure type and insurance company requirements. Additionally, it provides fully integrated ordering physician and patient portals, exceeding the market standards for communication and accessibility.
Opal-EHR achieves complete EHR certification for ambulatory care facilities, while in any setting enabling more effective management of schedules based on timeframes for insurance authorizations, procedure types and insurance company requirements. Additionally, it provides fully integrated odering physician and patient portals, exceeding the market standards for communication and accessibility.
Significantly enhancing the functionality of Viztek’s existing Opal-wRIS platform, the new Web-based application enables reading physicians to access all information and communications within the practice relating to their patients. Ordering physicians have the ability to request or view full patient records and exams electronically by simply logging into the system from any web-enabled device, rather than manually contacting providers.
Opal-EHR enables radiology facilities to streamline schedule management by predicting insurance authorization time windows based on procedure type and specific insurer policies. The system can automatically delay exam scheduling if authorizations have not been received prior to a procedure date, relieving staff of delaying procedures after the patient's arrival at the office.
Opal-EHR’s patient portal provides access to radiology images and reports and allows patient downloads for consults and second opinions. The system also enables physicians to share cases with specialists electronically, eliminating the need for faxing or mailing information.
Viztek’s versatile new dynamic system manages a variety of fluoroscopy sub-types, including gastrointestinal, pediatrics, injections, tomography, arthrography, interventional radiography, urogenital, and DSA. In static mode, the machine delivers ultra-fast throughput of high-quality DR images in five seconds. It offers the world’s most advanced DR technology and features a 17 x 17 inch panel that provides a large field of view and eliminates the need for panel rotation.
Supporting patients up to 584 pounds, the product can be lowered to an 18.9-inch horizontal tabletop height and offers 79 inches of patient coverage, minimizing patient repositioning, while accommodating long-leg imaging through auto movement and positioning.
