ScImage has been awarded a contract from the Veteran’s Health Administration (VHA) for its nationwide teleradiology program serving more than 150 medical centers.
A ScImage system will be deployed as a web layer on top of disparate PACS at various facilities to route exams along with prior images and reports based on dynamic business rules for use exclusively by the VHA’s Teleradiology Center. Hence, the system will provide a virtual reading environment for reading radiologists and/or radiology groups.
The system, PicomEnterprise, will help the VHA overcome its shortage of qualified staff in certain certain areas. PicomEnterprise features several time-saving clinical applications for TelePACS over broadband infrastructure. The system will be placed in VHA datacenters to provide a virtual reading environment for radiologists from anywhere while administrators can monitor reading progress, exam volumes and workflow efficiencies.
