US-based Kennedy Health is set to deploy Mach7 Technologies’ vendor neutral archive (VNA) enterprise imaging platform.
Kennedy Health, which operates three acute care hospitals and ambulatory campuses, also selected Mach7’s zero-footprint universal Clinical Viewer that runs on desktops, laptops, and mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones.
Kennedy Health network services associate vice-president Mike Archer said: "As our enterprise has grown, our vision for enterprise-wide image management has evolved.
"We’re redefining our enterprise imaging strategy and we sought to partner with a company whose technology would not only support our clinical and business goals, but would give us the foundation we need to power our long-term vision."
The imaging platform will allow Kennedy Health to consolidate image storage and patient data from more than a dozen clinical systems, allowing efficient study of unused storage capability.
Mach7’s platform will also make Kennedy’s EHR system image-enabled, as well as Kennedy’s patient and physician portals.
It will also help clinical staff view patient files including DICOM and non-DICOM images, audio, and video without an external application.
The company also received a contract from University of Georgia (UGA) Veterinary Teaching Hospital for using its enterprise imaging platform to deconstruct their existing PACS and adopt a vendor neutral imaging management model.
Mach7 already deployed its imaging platform in Raffles Hospital, Singapore General Hospital, and Medical Imaging in Singapore.
