MedStar installs Medical Insight's EasyViz
After evaluating a number of systems that would allow access to medical images in its Enterprise Health Record (EHR) system, MedStar Health selected EasyViz by Medical Insight to be its enterprise-wide image viewer. MedStar Health, a $4 billion not-for-profit community-based healthcare organization serving the Baltimore/Washington region, has a network of 9 hospitals and 20 other health-related businesses with more than 163,000 inpatient admissions and over 2 million outpatient visits each year.
Why did MedStar choose Easy Viz? First of all, with EasyViz, integration and access to medical images will include integration to a variety of other installed systems including MedStar’s Electronic Medical Records(EMR) files (Cerner) and its Ambulatory EMR (GE Centricity). EasyViz, which doesn’t require any cache, allows physicians inside and outside of the hospital instant access to images, no matter where these physicians are based. Besides providing access to images across all nine hospitals, EasyViz supports complete mobility regarding access to images, analysis tools and reports – at any location, at any time and on any device.
According to Mike Hamacher, vice president, business development Medical Insight A/S, "It was evident throughout the process that MedStar leadership understood empowering clinicians with enterprise access to diagnostic quality images, a complete set of clinical tools, on a modern IT platform, would ultimately deliver a higher standard of care and a better experience for their patients."
Now in the implementation process, MedStar found that EasyViz would allow the enterprise to serve the general needs of healthcare professionals on a regular basis as well as provide sophisticated tool sets to meet the demands of the highest level of imaging user. EasyViz has sufficient flexibility to customize and meet the unique challenges of a distributed set of hospitals within the integrated delivery network (IDN). Certainly MedStar felt that EasyViz was the best over-all value as well as a revolutionary way for clinicians to gain access to patient image data while improving clinical workflow.
