Promoting unification and cost reduction of medical image management systems
TeraRecon, a leading provider of enterprise medical image management solutions, debuted it’s iNteract+™ solution at the 2014 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference.
iNteract+ (pronounced “interact-plus”) works in combination with any of the company’s medical image viewers and image sharing and storage solutions to provide unmatched intelligence, powerful interoperability and simplified integration capabilities.
“iNteract+ is a suite of intelligence and interoperability tools that augment existing systems and bring it all together within the viewer both efficiently and effectively” said Jeff Sorenson, TeraRecon senior vice president. Mr. Sorenson continued, “Our primary objective is to support CIO’s in their mission to reduce the number of clinical systems that they support, while providing the ‘right information, at the right time, in the right place.’ TeraRecon is the first company to also achieve the ‘right view’ with the ‘right tools’ in order to optimise and information-enable these image-centric clinical workflows. Eighty-five percent (85%) of the 2013 US News & World Report Top Hospitals already employ TeraRecon solutions and are able to take advantage of simple and affordable upgrades which provide end-to-end image enablement and immediate cost savings.”
TC Zhao, Ph.D., TeraRecon’s chief technology officer explained, “TeraRecon is well known for its powerful server-based image processing technologies. Much of our intellectual property and expertise is directly applied to solving the challenges of image enabling entire health enterprises. Today, customers have too many image viewers and ironically too little access to their images. Very often systems such as RIS, PACS and VNA work well within radiology, but iNteract+ stands alone as the only solution capable of also achieving collaborative remote access with image sharing, DICOM and non-DICOM viewing and incorporation of relevant clinical information all within one viewer.”
Lakshmi Lakshminarayan, TeraRecon chief executive officer explained, “We are also seeing increased demand for our more powerful web-based diagnostic radiology viewers being used as an ‘overlay PACS viewer’ because of the integrated collaboration features, multi-monitor support and fully-integrated 3D post-processing capabilities. It is a testament to the power and sophistication of our iNteract+ solutions that we are able to meet the needs of the most demanding image-intensive specialty of radiology while simultaneously image-enabling the rest of the entire healthcare ecosystem to improve patient care. While interoperability is the theme of most vendors, TeraRecon has brought focus on the ability to interact across the enterprise to deliver the clinical relevance and added value that physicians are seeking out of interoperability. ”
