TeraMedica’s Versatile Vendor Neutral Architecture to Launch IT Initiatives at Renown
(MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin – February 21st, 2012)
The modules will give physicians virtual access to image data and will help medical professionals manage the storage and distribution of digital medical images as well as other clinical content across healthcare and hospital systems, gathering images from imaging devices or PACS, storing them and distributing them to the point of patient care. The complete deployment includes numerous regional facilities throughout a 17-county area in northern Nevada, Lake Tahoe and northeast California.
“Renown Health was looking to accomplish a number of priorities from a technical standpoint,” said Jim Prekop, TeraMedica’s President and CEO. “Their overarching goal was to bring replacement PACS and new hardware infrastructure under one umbrella. Our patented technology, Evercore, has the flexibility and scalability to give Renown what they needed and more.”
“Renown’s investment in TeraMedica’s Evercore Clinical Enterprise Suite will enable us to provide convenient clinician access to images across our Diagnostic Imaging, Cardiology and Radiation Oncology services.” said Chuck Scully, Renown Health’s CIO. “Once we discovered how Evercore could address those areas and more, we knew TeraMedica was the right solution to provide access to our patients’ extensive digital imaging history. We are confident TeraMedica will allow us to manage our future image volume under any strategic scenario.” Added Scully, “With important regional service imparities like Trauma, Stroke, Cardiology and Oncology, our two acute care hospitals, rehabilitation hospital, primary, specialist and urgent care networks, significant outpatient imaging and more, we anticipate that Evercore’s benefits will be realized quickly.”
Evercore integrates and manages patient-centric clinical content in the clinical and research settings across wide geographies, including standard DICOM objects. Evercore also possesses the ability to natively manage and distribute beyond DICOM using global standards such as MPG, JPG, PDF and many other critical clinical content such as treatment plans for cancer care or vital reports in non-standard formats.
TeraMedica’s patented Smartstore™ module intelligently manages the total image lifecycle of DICOM and beyond. The Univision™ module provides a multi-layer, zero-download image viewer, with seamless integration to any EMR/EHR/PHR/RHIO. TeraMedica’s vendor-independent platform connects multiple PACS to any storage system, thus ending cumbersome data migration.
