12/08/2017

Wayne, NJ, Nov. 1, 2017 – At the Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas, Inc. will introduce new functionalities including Performance Dashboards on the Exa™ Enterprise Imaging solution. Recent enhancements to the Exa platform, including non-DICOM data viewing capabilities and customized workflow engine, along with existing advanced technology make Exa Enterprise Imaging one of the most advanced healthcare IT platforms available on the market today. Konica Minolta will highlight Exa Enterprise Imaging in booth 1919, South Hall, November 26-30, 2017 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

A Custom Workflow Engine Design and reporting dashboard sets Exa apart from competitors. With the addition of Performance Dashboards, facilities can measure daily exam volume, radiologist performance, and referring physicians ordering preferences. Administrators and department managers can easily create their own customized reports to efficiently get the data that is most relevant for their practice or organization. Exa also facilitates the sharing of multispecialty medical images and reports via referring physician, patient, and attorney portals. The platform enables outside facilities to safely access pertinent patient data via Image Exchange, which eliminates the need for sending or bringing image CDs.

Exa is the only Enterprise Imaging solution that offers a diagnostic-quality Zero Footprint Universal Viewer for DICOM and non-DICOM images, including nuclear medicine and echocardiograms; Server-Side Rendering for fast access to large files, such as 3D Mammography,1 with no prefetching required; and cybersecurity with no data transferred to or stored on workstations to minimize unwanted exposure to patient data. For women’s health departments and clinics seeking to consolidate viewing, it offers universal viewing of images from a single workstation.

The Exa platform, comprised of multiple modules including PACS, RIS, EHR and specialty viewers, was developed to enable each site to design its own preferred imaging workflow, very simply, with drag and drop tools. The entire step-by-step process can be customized quickly and easily. Additionally, the Exa modules can be used as an integrated solution or individually with a facilities existing software investments, further enhancing an organization’s return on investment.

“Throughout this past year, we’ve continued to explore, invent and transform Exa into a true Enterprise Imaging solution,” says Steve Deaton, President of Konica Minolta HCIT. “Our investment in a modular platform enables us to rapidly implement advanced technologies and deliver innovative functionality such as non-DICOM viewing, portals for image sharing and Performance Dashboards. This approach also enables facilities to maximize their investments in healthcare IT while tapping into administrative reports that can help achieve maximum clinical and business efficiencies.”
