Hyland Healthcare Releases Two New Solutions to Advance Enterprise Imaging

NilRead release 4.3 and new product offering, PACSgear Image Link Encounter Workflow, address imaging challenges within specialties and across healthcare organizations

Available today and on view at SIIM 2018, Hyland Healthcare launched two enterprise imaging solutions that provide new tools to capture, integrate and share vital documents and media across departments and organizations. The new offerings, NilRead enterprise viewer release 4.3 and PACSgear Image Link Encounter Workflow, address challenges within specialties, as well as enhance workflow capabilities to bridge gaps throughout the healthcare enterprise.

Designed specifically for the encounter-based, orderless workflows found across the enterprise in specialty imaging departments, the Image Link Encounter Workflow (ILEW) solution helps healthcare organizations of all sizes more effectively integrate their multi-modality and multi-specialty imaging content with the rest of the enterprise.

Image Link Encounter Workflow provides an organization with the following capabilities:

  • Modality worklist services – for encounter-based imaging procedures, ILEW creates scheduled procedures that can be queried by a DICOM modality via DICOM Modality Worklist protocol.
  • DICOM reconciliation – for DICOM enabled, point-of-care modalities, ILEW ensures the completeness and integrity of the DICOM patient and procedure metadata by integrating information from multiple sources.
  • Outbound HL7 – creates orders for encounter-based imaging procedures and updates the EHR.

NilRead release 4.3 builds on the foundation of providing advanced viewing capabilities through a zero-footprint viewer. This release of NilRead focuses on improvements to the user experience in addition to extending support for some critical specialties. Significant enhancements include:

  • Extended DICOM-ECG support - provides the ability to view, measure and document diagnostic ECG waveforms with new ECG Viewing Layouts, an expanded ECG tools panel and new measurement functionality.
  • Enhanced support for radiation therapy treatment plans - now provides the ability to add, delete or change isodoses, modify the color of isodoses and ROI structures, as well as improved protocol performance.
  • Study notes - users can capture study-specific content in a pre-defined template within NilRead. The notes are stored in a standards based, portable format (DICOM SR) and associated with the DICOM study.
  • Advanced monitoring and diagnostic tools - include easier access to usage and system statistics to enable faster diagnosis of problems and system expansion.

“These enhanced and expanded products demonstrate Hyland Healthcare’s focus on future-ready solutions for our customers,” said Sandra Lillie, global director, enterprise imaging sales and strategy for Hyland Healthcare. “By developing products that not only address today’s imaging challenges, but also prepare organizations for a more integrated, secure and efficient exchange of imaging content, we strive to be a trusted partner for improving patient care.”

Hyland Healthcare will be sharing both new solutions at SIIM 2018 in booth 307. Mike Joslin, a solution engineer for Hyland Healthcare will also be part of a panel at the event titled, “Mobile Image and Information Capture Across the Enterprise” on Thurs., May 31 at 11:00 am.
