Phillipsburg, NJ – May 22, 2012 – INFINITT North America, a leading provider of image and information management solutions for healthcare, today announced it has become an application partner with InterSystems Corporation. Headquartered in Cambridge, MA, InterSystems is a global provider of database, integration, analytics and strategic informatics technologies. The partnership will enable INFINITT to support complex interfacing for multi-facility, disparate PACS reading environments.
Through this collaboration, INFINITT will be able to offer InterSystems Ensemble’s rapid integration platform functionality with its own high-end viewing application to address the workflow obstacles radiologists and teleradiology groups face when reading studies from disparate PACS and multiple healthcare facilities.
When reading studies that are sent from disparate PACS, radiologists typically have to log out of one system and log into another, each with its own user ID and password, its own viewing tools and its own results reporting workflow. In contrast, INFINITT’s Unified Worklist application receives HL7 orders from the remote sites, converts the incoming messages to a standard data feed and presents both HL7 messages and DICOM images to the INFINITT PACS Viewer.
Transparent to the end user, InterSystems Ensemble carries the messages from one or more systems, reformats them to a consistent format for viewing/reading and contains all logic for routing the images back to the originating site – again in the correct format.
InterSystems Ensemble is fully-integrated with the INFINITT PACS, supports web services and all HL7 standard schemas, and offers built-in alerting and monitoring features.
The INFINITT/InterSystems integration provides:
- a unified reading & reporting environment that consolidates studies from multiple sites through one user interface and Worklist
- rules-based search capability that will prefetch priors from all connected facilities
- the ability to read studies from multiple facilities and any version of HL7 with a single login, and with a common set of features and reporting tools
This integrated solution enables your radiology practice to increase reading efficiency while improving service to referring doctors. It is another example of INFINITT’s ingenuity and willingness to collaborate with other companies to provide the very best solution for the customer.
The INFINITT PACS has ranked Number 1 in the Top 20 Best in KLAS Report: Software and Services for the Community Hospital market for three years in a row (2009, 2010 and 2011). *
