As a state of the art technology adopter, CCPA recently expanded its image management offering to embrace the Cloud-based PICOM365 solution for increased productivity, improved patient care and enhanced patient experience. When asked about the evaluation of PICOM365 with integrated hemodynamics during the development of the new center, Neil Gavel, Practice Administrator, stated, "We were so impressed by the integrated system [ScImage's PICOM365 Cloud and Fysicon's (a Canon Company) QMAPP Hemodynamics], we replaced our entire imaging and structured reporting workflow across both the practice and lab environments and are already seeing the benefits."
CCPA's new lab features a fixed C-arm and performs a full complement of PCI and peripheral vascular procedures, along with another dedicated procedure room for TEE's and ablations, and 5 pre/post-op bays, each equipped with QMAPP patient monitoring solutions. "PICOM365 Cloud serves as the backbone of our lab," continued Mr. Gavel, "Connecting all the disparate devices used in the procedure room and linking it all though an interface to our Centricity EHR for an order-driven workflow, DICOM Modality Worklist, and results back to the patient's record in the EHR, which includes a link to the images stored in PICOM365 Cloud for easy access from within the patient's chart."
"But it was more than just the lab workflow that caught our attention. The Cloud is a game changer as it offers all kinds of benefits to include anywhere, anytime access to reading and full structured reporting of both our non-invasive and invasive imaging studies performed across the lab and the practice," concluded Mr. Gavel.
CCPA's Cloud-centric workflow includes also includes integrated post-processing for nuclear cardiac studies. "ScImage recognizes the critical nature of both clinical as well as professional efficiency required from a comprehensive cardiology PACS, and we kept physicians' needs at the forefront when developing our zero-footprint solution for viewing and reporting cases from any computer in the hospital, office, home or while traveling," said Sai Raya, Ph.D., ScImage's Founder and CEO. "CCPA's configuration highlights the benefits of a Cloud solution; from hemodynamics to post processing, PICOM365 Cloud pulls it all together."
