Greater flexibility in health data management and more efficient workflow
Newport Beach, CA (February 17, 2016) – Candelis, Inc., one of the fastest growing healthcare IT companies, announces availability of the latest version of its platform software for its over 2,300 existing installations.
Version 2.2.8, dubbed Mercury, offers Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) capabilities for health data storage. While other VNAs have a cost- prohibitive price tag, Candelis has redefined the notion of VNA via an affordable solution, and in the process, enabled any facility – be it a small imaging center, a community hospital or a large hospital – to consolidate patient imaging and other departmental content into one repository.
The latest Mercury upgrade includes the following features:
Support for external storage
Backup to sister system
Cloud or external storage pool
Vendor agnostic/neutral viewers
Vendor agnostic/neutral image management
Many of these features automatically classify the system as a VNA. Moreover, Candelis has done hundreds of HL7 integrations with a wide variety of branded systems, further proof of its vendor neutrality.
Mercury has also improved workflow and visualization features. Customers can now seamlessly manage patient studies from outside facilities or automatically handle prior studies with different patient
identifier schemas after facility mergers. Capabilities to improve workflow productivity are also included in the new version.
“As a current Candelis customer, our system automatically qualified to add the latest VNA functionality. We truly have a vendor-neutral solution. It can accept studies from all other vendor systems so easy integration is a given. Data exchange is painless and our hospital is incredibly organized and efficient,” said Craig Edwards, PACS Administrator, St. Francis Hospital in Roslyn, NY.
“We have listened to our customers and continue to innovate by delivering cost-effective solutions to meet their needs. With this upgrade, now any-sized organization can have a VNA, a functionality previously available to only hospitals with large budgets,” said Tricia Buenvenida, Director of Marketing.
The existing Candelis customer base under service is entitled to this upgrade, which also offers built-in connectivity to Candelis' ASTRATM, state-of-the-art cloud services which provide capabilities for secure health data exchange, robust backup and disaster recovery, and rich services for referring physicians.
