Kobe, Japan, September 22, 2014 - Vital Images, Inc., a Toshiba Medical Systems Group Company, will feature VitreaViewR, a universal viewer that provides uniform access to patient imaging at AOCR in Kobe, Japan, September 24-28. VitreaView is accessed through the Electronic Medical Record (EMR), Electronic Health Record (EHR) and through zero footprint viewers.
"VitreaView has seen great success in other regions globally, helping clinicians and healthcare administrators improve workflow and support communication between clinicians, referring physicians and patients," said Dr. Ravi Shrestha, General Manager, Asia Pacific at Vital Images, Inc. "Providing access to images - both DICOM and non-DICOM - from anywhere helps complete the patient’s medical record and enables the care team to see the whole health history before making informed clinical decisions. VitreaView has played an important role in making this information available throughout the healthcare enterprise, at multiple points of clinical care delivery, mirroring the current clinical workflow."
"It really came down to efficiency and time," said Ronald Fuschillo Jr., Englewood Hospital and Medical Center Vice President and CIO. As an industry, healthcare has "put a lot of technology in front of physicians that hasn’t necessarily provided a positive experience," he said. "VitreaView is the first piece of technology that we've deployed that they’re excited about and are very interested in using. A cardiologist stood up during our selection process and stated, 'For the first time, I can see an entire continuum of care for the patient centered around the patient.'"
VitreaView provides healthcare professionals with a centralized view of a patient history, which means image data and reports can be received from multiple disparate databases and then viewed through one universal viewer. This directly addresses physicians' need for increased access to imaging data, standardization and improved collaboration capabilities. With VitreaView, users can view both DICOM and non-DICOM images, review multi-modality data, access 2D/MPR and essential 3D view tools as well as perform comparative reviews and allow for historical search of relevant data.
VitreaView is designed for flexible deployment leveraging industry standards. It is scalable, fault tolerant, and can be fully virtualized. VitreaView’s software-only platform is a secure, zero download, zero footprint, browser and operating system-independent solution.
