Virtual Radiologic debuts unified worklist for radiology
Virtual Radiologic (VRC) highlighted its expanding array of subspecialty teleradiology services, with an emphasis on cardiac CTA and pediatric interpretation services. The company introduced vRadConnect, its new workflow engine, which “reduces the radiologist and radiologist tech pain” during the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago last month.

vRadConnect, a web-based, universal worklist platform features an easy-to-use, scalable workflow engine anchored by VRC's proprietary RIS/PACS. vRadConnect offers radiologists and technicians a unified view of radiology orders with value-added features like alerting, sorting, auto-order creation and viewing. The platform is available in three service levels: basic; free; premium; and enhanced, which will be available in mid-2008.

“We wanted radiology and ER departments to have an inter-departmental transparency in trying to serve the patients’ needs,” said Matt Cox, vice president, VRC.
