Imorgon Medical to Install Imorgon Ultrasound Enhancement System at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital
Improves Workflow Efficiency, Diagnostic Accuracy for Increased Confidence and Patient Safety
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Oct. 23, 2014 &madash; Imorgon Medical, a developer of wholly integrated software solutions that empower diagnostic ultrasound to deliver the highest quality of patient care, announced the planned installation of the Imorgon Ultrasound Enhancement System™ in Radiology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital System in Philadelphia.
The Imorgon System is an advanced solution that seamlessly integrates with enterprise Picture Archive Communication System (PACS) workstations, and the system’s harmonization engine provides vendor-neutral compatibility with all major ultrasound and dictation systems for streamlined workflow efficiency, greater diagnostic precision and accurate reporting.
“We are steadfast in our commitment to providing a better way to connect the ultrasound acquisition process to the diagnostic reporting process,” said Lloyd Kreuzer, Ph.D., chief executive officer of Imorgon. “Since our first installation, the Imorgon Ultrasound Enhancement System has proven to streamline workflow efficiencies and ensure diagnostic accuracy, resulting in significant cost savings. We believe this clinical economic advantage is achieved by saving time for both the sonographer and the radiologist.
“We are confident that the radiologists, sonographers and patients in Thomas Jefferson University Hospital’s Radiology Department will benefit from the significant improvements enabled by our system,” continued Kreuzer.
With Imorgon, monographers are able to perform exams more easily by utilizing the Sonographer QC tools. Specifically, ultrasound study exceptions, or patient and study information, can be easily corrected and the ability to add or edit annotations, make measurements, delete images and split or merge studies is quickly performed by the sonographer at the system. The Imorgon System’s integrated electronic reporting decreases errors associated with handwritten paper forms and manual report dictation systems. The auto-populated report templates with patient exam observations and findings eliminate redundant dictation, and the reports are ultimately more complete, accurate, and easy to interpret, resulting in better patient care.
Imorgon’s Ultrasound Enhancement System is based on the DICOM industry standard for transferring images and other medical information between computers, and on the HL7 communications standard for Hospital Information Systems (HIS), which reduces the potential for enterprise workflow disruptions and downtime. In addition, because the system is software driven it requires no hardware, which minimizes a hospital’s IT footprint.
Imorgon Medical, headquartered in Redwood City, Calif., was founded by ultrasound industry veterans who were key members of the technology team that invented ultrasound PACS in the 1990s. Building on decades of ultrasound expertise, Imorgon is dedicated to producing a scalable software solution that offers highly intuitive functionality and enhances the PACS viewing environment, ensuring ease-of-use and the ability to leverage existing IT and infrastructure investments. By using computer technology in a unique way, the company developed an innovative solution that enables the full potential of diagnostic ultrasound by improving workflow efficiency and diagnostic accuracy.
