RSNA: Aspyra to show teleradiology, interoperabilty with new RIS/PACS
Aspyra (Booth #3021) is demonstrating the latest release of AccessRAD, its integrated RIS/PACS product, at the 2009 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting.

The latest release of Aspyra’s AccessRAD RIS/PACS, version 6.5, includes updated features for accessing and reading radiological images and new methods for creating, printing and scanning of registration forms and modality questionnaires; an improved scheduling process; and a newer method of rescheduling or canceling of patient exams, the Westlake Village, Calif.-based company said.

AccessRAD RIS/PACS v6.5 also features the capability to create internal orders for studies sent from outside referring facilities for diagnostic interpretation via DICOM transfer protocols. The orders are processed by the RIS. Reports created for these outside studies can have tailored report templates which retain the other facility's medical record and exam number, Aspyra said. Once signed by the radiologist, the reports then can be sent back to the outside facility via fax or HL7 data transmission.
