Royal Philips has installed a clinical information technology tool forÂ Georgia Regents Medical CenterÂ that is built to help facilitate cross-department access of patientsâ€™ imaging data through integration with electronic medical records.
The company said Friday the Philips IntelliSpace PACS version 4.4 platform was piloted at GRMCâ€™s radiology department for gradual expansion into diagnostic imaging and other services.
â€œThis new Picture Archiving and Communication System from Philips enables us to store, access, and review everything from old X-ray films to the most advanced digital images in all modalities,â€ said James Rawson, chief of radiologic services at GRMC.
IntelliSpace PACS, part of the Philips healthcare informatics solutions and services groupâ€™s portfolio, is built with multi-modality visualization features and is designed to help with remote clinical services.
â€œInnovative health systems like Georgia Regents are moving to new business models of patient-centric care, recognizing that Â accessible and accurate imaging data is a critical piece of the puzzle,â€ said Jeroen Tas, CEO of Philips Healthcare Informatics Solutions and Services.
Philips and GRMC signed a 15-year, $300 million partnership in 2013 for patient services covering GRMC, Children’s Hospital of Georgia, Georgia Regents University Cancer Center and several outpatient clinics.
