Women's Imaging

Women’s Imaging facilities in the United States and around the world are all facing the same set of challenges as they implement or expand digital imaging technologies. These facilities need to digitize, automate and streamline their operations and entire workflow for maximum efficiency and profitability.

Given the downward pressure on reimbursements and the competitive nature of the Women’s Imaging market, facilities require solutions that are cost effective and easy to maintain. Increasingly, the lowest possible Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), which factors in solution administration, maintenance, functionality, usability and serviceability is becoming the key factor in decision making.

The ImageGrid Image Management Appliance helps Women's Imaging facilities address customer’s Image Management requirements for automated/rules-based DICOM Routing, automated/rules-based pre-fetching of relevant priors, HL7 integration interface support, caching of studies and long term archiving.
