In cross-sector and integrated systems of healthcare in particular, rapid and seamless communication of image and reporting data is essential for achieving high-quality patient care. Hospitals with multiple sites, or a centralized radiology department are also facing the challenges of image logistics. The reliable management of image logistics, as well as the safeguarding of data consistency and quality, are of major significance to imaging diagnostics in multi-site and cross-sector networks.
In this respect, teleradiology solutions offer enormous benefits. On the one hand, they explicitly help save time and money. On the other, work in diagnostics is improved thanks to the continuous availability of all images and reports, allowing for an earlier start of therapy in the process. The option of acquiring an expert opinion rapidly and easily is in support of this. Realizing physicians' stand-by duty, or the supervision of junior colleagues from at home are further contributing aspects.
Implementing multi-site PACS solutions, as well as data center-based solutions presents a major challenge. They require a flexible IT platform which can adapt to the continuously changing requirements at all times. JiveX offers such a platform. It includes a clear distinction between IT infrastructure, professional data management, and the customer-specific applications.
