Offering improved image management and radiology workflow facilities, Siemens Healthcare has unveiled two new solutions.
Siemens has announced that the company will host its Image Sharing & Archiving (ISA) offering with the help of Dell’s clinical data management software at the Siemens HCCC. Normally, patients and healthcare providers have a tough time maintaining on-site image archives due to the various issues involved. This partnership between Siemens and Dell looks to solve this problem by combining their respective healthcare clouds, the company stated in a press release.
“Radiology practices already invest in software that helps them mine their own data to look at key performance indicators — to judge their output — but oftentimes the lens is solely focused on the practice, with only a vague national benchmark for comparison, and no clear strategy for ways to optimize the workflow solution that is currently in use,” said Kurt Reiff, vice president of Business Management at SYNGO Americas. “Siemens has the opportunity to provide customers with a direct comparison, using completely de-identified information.”
With this partnership, the SYNGO Workflow radiology information system (RIS) from Siemens will get a whole new implementation approach. The company has stated that this will help healthcare providers to reduce the costs of maintaining on-site image archiving hardware.
Since RIS also provides efficient disaster recovery strategy, this offering is said to provide peace of mind to the users. The Siemens HCCC offers a secure data environment which meets the various requirements of healthcare providers as far as image maintenance is concerned.
In other news, a two-year global initiative launched by Siemens to strengthen the healthcare sector appears to be gathering momentum with many healthcare providers across the country turning to Siemens and Soarian to help them connect people to care for their communities.
Soarian, the next generation healthcare information system solution from Siemens, provides workflow technology to help streamline the patient care process across the enterprise and is helping hospitals find greater health IT value, according to company officials.
