Technologies Are Leveraged Symbiotically to Consolidate Advanced Visualization and EMR Image Enablement Projects to Simplify Image-Intensive Clinical Workflows

CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- TeraRecon (www.terarecon.com), a leader in advanced visualization and enterprise medical image viewing solutions, highlighted major implementation and innovations of its iNtuition advanced visualization solution combined with its new iNteract+ interoperability capabilities, at the 100th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), held at McCormick Place, Chicago, Illinois, November 30th-Dec 4th, 2014. Booth #4100.

The latest version 4.4.12 of iNtuition and iNteract+ will be demonstrated at the RSNA, with the focus on the flexibility and power of the complete solution to perform many mission critical image viewing workflows, such as:

  • Universal Viewing and Image Sharing for EMR image-enablement and beyond
  • Deconstructed PACS for future-proof PACS replacement or PACS-on-PACS
  • Advanced Visualization for extending decision support tools

iNtuition and iNteract+ combine to achieve all of these goals immediately, while seamlessly leveraging legacy PACS systems and any Vendor Neutral Archives immediately. Customers are now taking a 'viewer first' approach to image-enablement rather than focusing on data aggregation as the priority. This is possible because the entire TeraRecon system and all of the available partner integrations leverage open-standards communications.

Steven Campbell, IS Manager of Diagnostic Applications for Piedmont Healthcare, said, "TeraRecon quickly implemented an enterprise advanced visualization solution across our five hospitals and simultaneously deployed the zero-footprint viewer to image-enable our Epic EMR, leveraging our PACS-independent VNA. In our comprehensive approach to enterprise image enablement, we have included everything from image sharing and remote visualization workflows to innovative imaging informatics initiatives such as a de-coupled PACS environment. TeraRecon is much more to our organization than a technology provider. They are true partners with our physicians and the IT organization alike."

Dr. Marc Wallace, Neuroradiologist and Director, Imaging Informatics, Allegheny Health Network, said, "Our organization is in a replacement cycle and chose to pursue a deconstructed PACS due to the flexibility it provides us over time. We have leveraged TeraRecon advanced visualization solutions across our enterprise for many years. The capabilities of iNtuition and iNteract+ working together allowed us to pursue deconstructed PACS with less risk, and equally importantly, with the best eye toward collaborative multi-specialty workflow."

Jeff Sorenson, TeraRecon senior vice president, said, "We are proud to work with innovators like Piedmont Healthcare and Allegheny Health Network to set new standards in imaging workflow, simplicity and effectiveness. At this year's RSNA, attendees can experience the remarkable flexibility of our 'morphable' viewing solution by seeing it work real-time in combination with many of the leading radiology worklist, vendor neutral archive, electronic content management and health information exchange technologies."
