imageGateways are products targeted at imaging environments and are offered in the following two flavors:
Exam Publisher - interfaces with existing RIS and PACS systems in order to expose imaging reports and studies in the network of facilities/enterprises.
It also makes the local PACS visible to the rest of the network by providing a standard HTTP-based interface to the studies residing in the PACS.
Exam Prefetcher - automatically prefetches relevant remote prior imaging exams and reports (for a locally scheduled exam) from the network into local PACS system.
Enables RIS and PACS systems to participate in XDS-I-based information exchange as full-fledged
XDS-I Document Sources. (Publisher)
Provides web access to imaging (DICOM) studies via WADO and IHE RAD-69 standards. (Publisher)
Publishes diagnostic imaging reports as well as images (via XDS-I manifests)
into XDS repositories and the XDS registry. (Publisher)
Prefetches relevant prior exams aquired anywhere in the network into the local PACS system. (Prefetcher)
Translates all terminology (e.g., procedure codes, body parts, etc.) from local to global/regional nomenclature (Publisher) and back (Prefetcher).
Generates comprehensive audit trails for all incoming and outgoing requests as required by IHE profiles. (Publisher and Prefetcher)
- XDS-enables your clinical information systems or PACS with little effort.
- Preserves and leverages past investments by working with the existing systems instead of replacing them.
- Improves performance of the diagnostic cycle by sharing results (Lab, Imaging, etc.) with the referring physician, specialist, etc. as soon as they become available.
- Facilitates collaborative patient care by making clinical results - generated anywhere in the network - visible to all stakeholders involved in patient's care.
- Reduces unnecessary tests and improves patient outcomes by incorporating diagnostic results into the patient health record.
- Supports VMware and Hyper-V virtualization environments.
- Designed for deployments in multi-node server farms.
