Case Study: Creating a better model for medical image management in Canada

GE Healthcare

Today's leading healthcare provider organizations are larger and more complex than ever before. But that doesn't mean they can't connect and collaborate efficiently and effectively. With Centricity™ Clinical Archive, it's possible to connect physicians across numerous specialties, facilities and locations, allowing them rapid access to patient images, no matter which hospital produced them, and regardless of the PACS and RIS technology that hospital uses. For example, since 2008, 62 hospitals in the Southwestern Ontario region of Canada have shared a single archive and network for diagnostic images. The exchange is built on the highly scalable and vendor-neutral platform of Centricity Clinical Archive to help realize substantial cost savings through reductions in duplicate exams, unnecessary patient transfers, and improved radiologist and technologist productivity. Get the inside story in this case study.

Centricity Clinical Archive includes the following product components: Centricity Enterprise Archive, Universal Viewer ZFP, Caradigm eHIE, Centricity Clinical Gateway, NextGate MatchMetrix EMPI, PACSGEAR PacsSCANTM
