By supporting these DICOM imaging and messaging standards as well as the conversion from PDF to DICOM Encapsulated PDF, NetDirector can now provide additional top-tier integration services to hospital systems, radiology and teleradiology providers, and other healthcare organizations utilizing this advanced imaging standard. Through a powerful "integrate once" approach, healthcare provider systems can now leverage the standardization and versatility of DICOM data sets across all of their systems, without cumbersome internal integration or managing on-premise licensed software and the staff needed to support it. Currently, NetDirector has completed development and implementation of the PDF to DICOM Encapsulated PDF integration and conversion, and in the future will provide the service for other DICOM imaging formats as customer demand dictates.
At American Health Imaging (AHI) the document scanning process was creating a considerable hurdle in the company's workflow. Prior to the NetDirector conversion and integration process, the conversion was being done on individual desktop PCs – each of which required a software license, and a user to manually operate the software. Together, American Health Imaging and NetDirector saw an opportunity to automate and innovate the scanning and conversion processes, freeing up both technology and human resources that were currently being assigned to these tasks.
Dan Balentine, President at AHI, stated they are "very excited to have the PDF to DICOM conversion up and running." He continued – "NetDirector listened to our needs, and worked with us to develop a service around a pain we were experiencing – the ever-increasing labor and licensing fees surrounding our previous conversion process. This integration will alleviate much of the burden associated with this task."
