Konica Minolta unveils new enterprise imaging platform
Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas has debuted its new Exa Enterprise Imaging Platform at HIMSS17.
The vendor’s Exa Enterprise Imaging Platform offers a diagnostic-quality zero-footprint universal viewer for DICOM and non-DICOM images; server-side rendering for fast access to large files, such as 3D mammography, with no prefetching required; and cybersecurity with no data transferred to or stored on workstations to minimize unwanted exposure to patient data.
The new collaborative workflow platform provides hospitals and imaging centers the ability to view images across departments and facilities, regardless of image source, for DICOM and non-DICOM images, and offers a vendor-neutral archive for central storage of images, the vendor said. For women's health departments and clinics seeking to consolidate viewing, the new system offers universal viewing of images from a single workstation. Cardiology departments and clinics can use the same viewer for echocardiography and stress echocardiography images, the vendor added.
Widespread adoption of electronic health records and an industry shift to value-based care and new reimbursement models demands interoperability across disparate systems in the enterprise, particularly with regard to image sharing, Konica Minolta contended.
“Our end-to-end enterprise-wide diagnostic imaging management solutions contribute to improved care, reduced costs and necessary security,” said Steve Deaton, vice president of healthcare IT sales at Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas.
