Clinical products developer Visage Imaging and speech and imaging solutions company Dictaphone Healthcare Solutions have partnered to integrate their products for diagnostic workflow across the healthcare enterprise.
According to Visage, Dictaphone’s Commissure RadWhere application for radiology will be integrated with its picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and CS to provide a solution for speech-driven clinical documentation and enterprise-wide advanced visualization.
Multi-site healthcare facilities that have disparate RIS, PACS and 3D applications running are demanding solutions to bridge the gap between systems and help streamline workflow, said Michael Mardini, vice-president for medical imaging at Dictaphone. By integrating our respective applications, we are providing radiologists the control they need via a single bi-directional interface to create a more seamless diagnostic workflow, drive productivity and fully utilize their medical imaging IT infrastructure.
Visage added that its web and thin-client technologies will enable easy deployment of this integrated solution across the entire hospital enterprise, independent of the physical location and existing workstation equipment. The company claimed that this will help healthcare organizations decrease the report turnaround time, reduce costs and improve quality of care as well as launch speech-driven reporting software directly from within the Visage PACS worklist or viewers.
