APPLICATIONS AND SERVICES ON A SINGLE, MODERN PLATFORM

Lots of different products, numerous databases, many integration points, … does this sound familiar? Not anymore!

Instead, with Enterprise Imaging you have a single, modern platform that consolidates many applications and services. It’s built with a brand new architecture that brings you the latest advances in diagnostic imaging.

Order management, traditional PACS functionality, integration services, reporting, clinical applications and clinical data are together on one platform and in one database, while a broader spectrum of workflows is supported, improving the availability of clinical data, productivity and collaboration, with greater affordability.

The result is a fast and robust architecture, helping you get the most out of your IT investments

INTEROPERABILITY ACROSS MAJOR COMMUNICATION STANDARDS

With Enterprise Imaging you can reduce costs in a number of areas: from lower consumable usage, to more efficient use of resources like staff and space, to fewer image retakes.

Consolidating your IT infrastructure lets you leverage your existing investments, while reduced report turn-around time speeds up patient throughput.

Looking for a way to get high performance, reliability and scalability, with a lower total cost of ownership? Let us host your Enterprise Imaging solution for you.

We’ll take care of the day-today management, with predictable and all-inclusive service costs, including high availability and disaster recovery at a fraction of the cost of building your own.

SCALABILITY, AVAILABILITY AND DISASTER RECOVERY

Enterprise Imaging uses a multi-server configuration that can operate in a cluster mode and reach a higher load.

By spreading the load, Enterprise Imaging can support an increasing volume, making it scalable both in terms of connected systems and data throughput. Clustering enables the redundancy needed for high-availability solutions, improving your uptime. And redundant offsite solutions can provide business continuity and disaster recovery support.

Load balancer technology detects inactive nodes or services on individual cluster nodes, for automatic switchover in case of failures.

Enterprise Imaging supports the use of hardware load balancers: software load balancer HA Proxy can be replaced by a hardware load balancer, which typically offers a richer set of features and greater scalability.

SIMPLIFIED DEPLOYMENT ACROSS MULTIPLE FACILITIES

More and more, shared workflow is a must, even across different sites and facilities.

Cross reading, second opinions, they all require maximum communication. Using a local proxy server, Enterprise Imaging is designed to be placed in multiple facilities. It provides an inexpensive, database-less and easy-to use extension to a core server, and enables a shared workflow engine across facilities.

Optimized transmission methods answer the concerns of network bandwidth and latency, and by prefetching data, Enterprise Imaging minimizes transmission times during peak periods of demand. And if the proxy server is unavailable, the desktops and modalities failover to the core.

Total cost of ownership is reduced, while users don’t have to wait for their images to be transferred

What could you do if your unified imaging platform could be easily extended to other facilities, no matter how remote?

Meeting today’s mobility needs

Meet the needs of both users and hospital management, for the latest tools, technologies and mobility

Today, your users want maximum mobility, minimum fuss.

Enterprise Imaging lets you meet that demand, with tools to add and view images and videos in studies, sign off on reports, and more, all from a mobile device.

We’ve optimized it to better handle latency and to allow remote usability, even over challenging network conditions.

The platform supports the most popular browsers:
• Microsoft Internet Explorer®,
• Google Chrome™,
• Apple Safari®,
• Mozilla Firefox® and
• Opera™,

while supported mobile digital devices include Apple iPad® 2/3/4 (iOS 6.0.1 onwards) and Apple iPad® mini (iOS 6.0.2 onwards).

ALL THE SERVICES NEEDED TO MAXIMIZE USE AND EFFICIENCY

We have used the same care in developing the usability of the IT tools for Enterprise Imaging as for the rest of the solution!

The import/export setup tools make deployment fast and easy, and verifying that all of our customers are on the same, latest version of Enterprise Imaging, we can use your feedback to increase the solution’s efficiency. This also allows us to provide you with upgrades continuously, so you get new features faster.

Cost efficiency is improved by performing service tasks remotely, by minimizing training and by maximizing the consistency of user behavior. And the Healthcheck utility, integrated right into the application, lets you perform component-level-based status checks.

We have also made the license logistics simpler – 100% software based, no physical components, fully automated license delivery and activation – to reduce overhead costs. And you can enjoy the peace of mind of continuous monitoring and management of installations to help maximize uptime and productivity with our GRIP Monitoring service
