DICOM is an acronym that stands for Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine. It was developed specifically to enable easy storage and exchange of information in a medical environment.
We know you’re sick of them. So why are you still using them?
Sure, the discs themselves are cheap. But you probably spent about 30k on that CD burner, not to mention the expensive work hours you spend every day opening files and trying to push them to your PACS, and lost hours burning a patient’s whole case file to disc for their tertiary care appointments.
The other problem with CDs is that using them means a file room clerk is the one deciding what cases are considered relevant for the next physician to view. Add to this the fact that referring physicians resoundingly and unanimously hate to try to view cases from a CD… and you have just a few reasons why your facility should abandon this outmoded technology.
The teleradiology department will not give final reads without comparison films – that’s just best practice to keep the quality of the reads high. But unfortunately, this often requires a single, already busy nighttime tech to sort through the PACS and choose whatever they consider to be a relevant study.
It falls to your staff to find and transmit the relevant comparison cases, to scan or fax the hard documents, and to confirm the transfer – all for a service that you’re already paying for. Instead of having the night tech go to the PACS and find the study to be sent, wouldn’t it be better to simply send it once from the scanner and move on? This would free up the tech’s time to tend to their patients and process new ones.
mPlexus DICOM software products are available in multiple versions. Please contact us for detailed pricing information.
When your vendor announces that they will no longer be supporting your PACS, what can you do? In the past there was only one solution: shell out the cash to upgrade your PACS – a time consuming, expensive process.
With mPlexus software, though, you can keep your old archive and simply send the images to the new one instead of migrating from one database to another. You will no longer have to access the archive yourself to retrieve relevant prior images, so it doesn’t matter that your vendor has stopped support: the mPlexus software will do it for you.
