Viztek Announces Availability of Opal-Mammo Integrated …

Complete Women’s Health Package Combines PACS and Tracking Software 100% Web-Based Solution Enables Practices to Expand to Multiple Locations with Flexibility and Anywhere Access Raleigh, NC – (4/22/12) – Viztek, the digital imaging solution provider, announced today the availability of Opal-Mammo, a complete women’s health solution with the industry’s leading combination of a web-based mammography PACS with integrated  tracking software. Opal-Mammo features a multi-modality mammography viewer that offers practices streamlined management of high-resolution images. The PACS can be easily integrated with most practice’s EMR solution for a complete patient management platform. The system is built on a user-friendly platform, with intuitive controls that requires minimal training to operate. Included web-based dictation and voice recognition allows physicians and staff to instantly create reports from any web-enabled location. The solution is integrated with a tracking software component that greatly reduces the chances for any oversights, and allows the practice to establish rules for patient follow-ups. Currently, in clinical settings where the mammography viewer and the tracking system are not combined, a radiologist will generate a report and then a different individual will review a batch of reports and manually manage the tracking process of denoting status and next steps. With Opal-Mammo, the radiologist’s report seamlessly ties into the tracking system’s follow-up protocols, with persistent reminders in place to ensure timely continued care. The Opal-Mammo solution is available as a site license, allowing practices to expand to other locations without additional fees. Competitive solutions often require the purchase of new licenses for extra users or clinics. Opal-Mammo is also truly web-based, with all of the tools available on nearly any internet-connected device, giving practitioners simple mobile access to patient data. “Opal-Mammo is a real breakthrough for women’s health clinics and other locations that need a high-performing and cost-effective mammography solution,” said Steve Deaton, VP of Sales for Viztek. “It’s the first solution that combines a web-based mammography viewer with linked tracking software. With Opal-Mammo, practices can ensure that patients receive the right care and follow-up based upon their scan diagnosis and other factors. The intelligent software establishes certain actions throughout the patient cycle. For example, it will progress a patient through the ‘follow-up’ stage once they have completed a biopsy. It offers efficiency gains for the practice, allowing them to better serve more patients every day.” Opal-Mammo features Viztek’s innovative turnaround time (TAT) management feature, a custom dashboard which uses color coding and review time parameters to manage priority levels for patients. The solution is also fully compliant with the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) standards, a set of guidelines that helps ensure care uniformity and the highest quality patient service. About Viztek Viztek is a leading provider of complete digital software and hardware imaging solutions, backed by comprehensive training and support. The company’s state-of-the-art Opal-RAD PACS and RIS suite delivers advanced connectivity and functionality at an affordable price.

This news follows CGI’s announcement of this transformational project that will see CGI deploy and manage a shared Diagnostic Imaging repository (DI-r) solution. CGI is the leading health care solution provider in Canada. The GTA West DI-r solution will provide a secure, shared repository for storage, retrieval and viewing of diagnostic images and reports, such as X-rays and MRIs, and associated documents across multiple health care facilities in greater Toronto and central Ontario (GTA West). UHN represents a consortium of five Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) and 20 healthcare facilities, representing approximately 39 sites in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and central Ontario. Diagnostic imaging exam volumes are expected to exceed an annual volume of three million exams. The initiative is co-funded by eHealth Ontario and Canada Health Infoway.
