DURHAM, N.C. /New York Netwire/ — Heart Imaging Technologies (Heart IT), a global leader that pioneered the first FDA approved zero-footprint medical imaging workstation, announced today the release of the WebPAX(R) cardiac echo reporting module.
The WebPAX(R) product line offers leading edge medical image management and distribution platforms that enable the viewing of all medical images, including Radiology and Cardiology images, on the web, on a zero-footprint basis, and 100 percent diagnostic quality. The newest addition to the WebPAX line-up is the web-based cardiac echo reporting tool.
Hiram Perez, VP of Sales & Marketing stated: “Cardiologists who read cardiac echoes have long struggled with the fact that they have to be physically at the hospital in order to read an echo. Often times they have to make long drives at night or on holidays to have access to the images and reporting tools. Some solutions have tried to provide remote reading capabilities but they require cumbersome client software that is difficult to install/maintain and it seldom works well.”
Perez added, “The WebPAX system is 100 percent web-based and ‘zero-footprint,’ meaning it does not require any client software or plug-ins. By combining the ability to view diagnostic quality images with the ability to report on those images, we are giving cardiologists the capability to read echo’s from any location on the globe.”
The WebPAX(R) cardiac echo reporting module is part of the overall WebPAX CVIS Solution, which includes a listener for enterprise hospital order and ADT feeds that automatically prepopulate patient demographics and billing codes into the echo reports. After the images have been acquired, the DICOM structured report (SR) interface automatically imports the quantitative measurements made by echo technicians, thereby protecting physicians’ time for making the actual diagnosis. Cardiologists can then quickly complete the report using predefined templates and pick-lists, combined with a WYSIWYG user interface (what-you-see-is-what-you-get).
Once the report is finalized, WebPAX(R) CVIS transmits billing information electronically, and then distributes the report to the EMR via an HL7 message. The report can also be automatically sent to referring physicians via fax. Moreover, the entire diagnostic-quality image dataset can be embedded into the EMR via a secure web browser link, thereby satisfying Federal Stage 2 Meaningful Use requirements. WebPAX CVIS significantly improves the cardiologist’s workflow and the ability to deliver quick, effective, medical care to patients. Now cardiologists have the freedom to read echo’s from home, a remote clinic, or anywhere else, yet remain fully integrated into their hospital’s overall enterprise IT environment.
