Despite increasing regulatory and security challenges, an emerging trend towards the adoption of cloud-based software is starting to take hold in healthcare. Healthcare organizations are realizing not only the economic benefits but the opportunity to improve patient care as a result of implementing cloud computing in many parts of their organization. NAVIX is partnering with Core Sound Imaging, Inc., a leading provider of web-based Picture Archiving Communication Systems (PACS) solutions, to provide their clients with a robust solution for their workflow, reporting and archiving needs that offers opportunities to decrease costs and enhance patient care in the vascular lab.
While scrutiny on compliance with Patient Privacy Rights continues to escalate, cloud-based software is gaining momentum in healthcare. According to research firm Markets and Markets, the cloud computing market in the health care sector is expected to grow to $5.4 billion by 2017. Healthcare organizations seeking to deploy cloud-based tools should work with companies who meet HIPAA requirements and understand the governing laws of Patient Privacy Rights.
"Within our client base there is a growing need for image and reporting tools that are easy to integrate and deploy with other technologies," said Cheryl Ford, NAVIX's President and CEO. "Our partnership with Core Sound Imaging provides our clients with a robust, cost-effective and easy-to-use reporting tool that meets HIPAA requirements."
As part of NAVIX's comprehensive vascular lab program, clients will have the option to use Studycast for their image storage, reporting and workflow needs. Studycast, a Core Sound Imaging product, allows easy access to medical images and reports through a web-browser enabling physicians to interpret and process patient exams quickly and efficiently. Once approved, final reports are routed to the referring physician, EMR/EHR systems, billing departments, or other client-specified destinations.
"It was important to find a solution that supported NAVIX's clinical protocols. The SmartWorksheets included in Studycast are consistent with our exam protocols which make exam processing much easier for our clinicians," said Robert Kane, SVP of Clinical Services and Business Development.
Studycast's SmartWorksheets offer exam-specific tools to effectively and efficiently complete an interpretation. A comprehensive workflow solution, Studycast provides support beginning when the ultrasound exam leaves the ultrasound machine and ending when the final report has reached the intended recipients.
There are two components that are part of the Studycast process â€” CoreConnect and CoreWeb. CoreConnect is the gateway product that resides on a computer at the client's local facility. CoreConnect receives the exam from the ultrasound machine, and then transmits the images and study data to CoreWeb. CoreWeb is the web application that is used to view study images, Studycast SmartWorksheets and final reports.
From nearly any ultrasound machine, Studycast can acquire measurement data and populate this data in the online SmartWorksheets. With support from NAVIX's operational team, the implementation of Studycast is painless. While many applications require technical skills that are not typically available in the health care sector, Studycast makes it easy for healthcare organizations to realize the operational benefits that many other businesses have already achieved with cloud computing.
