Adopting an Enterprise Imaging Strategy: Benefits for Hospitals, Referring Physicians and Patients
The white paper presented by Merge Healthcare focuses on reducing radiation risks and unnecessary costs of duplicate testing.
It states that by using a system based on the enterprise imaging strategy, physicians will have access to the full diagnostic image and tools to study.
It describes three components critical to the success of an enterprise imaging strategy; a standardised vendor neutral archive (VNA), an intelligent digital image communication in medicine (DICOM) gateway and a universal viewer.
The paper says adopting an enterprise imaging strategy with "any image, anywhere, anytime" accessibility is not a technology issue.
It concludes by saying adopting an enterprise imaging strategy will allow hospitals to protect patients from unnecessary radiation, reduce the impact of duplicate tests and prepare themselves for the inevitable further declining reimbursement rates for duplicate tests.
