Philips Healthcare
Philips Healthcare (Booth 7173) is featuring new capabilities for both its iSite PACS and XIRIS 8.0 RIS solutions.

Philips XIRIS 8.0 introduces several enhanced features including improved scheduling and billing, statistical reporting, key milestone tracking, and quality assurance (QA) and peer review. The new 8.0 release also includes more effective distribution of results, supporting documentation and more flexible teleradiology components.  

New features include: batch transcriptionist, messaging, VIP protection, Digi-form data mining, and a comprehensive Daily Dashboard of XIRIS activity. XIRIS 8.0 leverages those components to support the Women's Health Care cycle for mammography and other treatment cycles, linking multiple visits and exams, plus consolidated reporting and dictation.

The highlight of XIRIS 8.0 is XRE 2.0, the next generation of Philips’ embedded reading environment allowing radiologists to manage their worklist, images and result reporting with voice commands in a simple and seamless connection solution joining XIRIS and the SpeechMagic voice recognition system.

Philips also is introducing new 3D clinical applications available for use with the latest version of iSite PACS and available as add-on options, including Philips iSite Volume Vision. Authorized caregivers within the enterprise can have unlimited access to these clinical visualization tools and applications with iSite PACS, using its high-performance iSyntax distribution technology.

Additionally, Philips iSite PACS features an open Application Programming Interface (API) that enables institutions to connect best-of-breed clinical and IT applications with iSite PACS. To date, more than 70 vendors have written applications that work with iSite PACS API. At RSNA 2008, some of these vendors and third-party applications are demonstrating their iSite PACS API interface.
