Hyland Healthcare to implement complete imaging solution to better manage unstructured patient content
UK HealthCare, the campus-based healthcare system for the University of Kentucky, has chosen Hyland Healthcare’s enterprise medical imaging solutions to consolidate and centrally manage images across the organization.
For the first stage of the medical imaging project, Hyland will install its Acuo Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) that will provide a single imaging repository that communicates seamlessly with UK HealthCare’s EMR. The VNA will support multiple department workflows and data ownership. As part of its enterprise imaging strategy, UK HealthCare will also implement the Hyland’s enterprise, diagnostic viewer, NilRead for ophthalmology, endoscopy and surgical images and videos. The enterprise, diagnostic viewer allows clinicians to access, view and interpret images anytime, anywhere.
UK HealthCare is already implementing OnBase, Hyland Healthcare’s industry-leading content services platform, as it transitions to a new electronic medical records (EMR) system. The combination of both Hyland’s content services and enterprise imaging solutions will allow UK Healthcare to harness all of their unstructured content, and make it available to clinicians at the point of care which reduces the need to search for patient information and improves the patient experience.The Hyland Healthcare team is working with UK HealthCare IT staff to plan for these projects that will enable the execution of a complete enterprise imaging strategy which will improve collaboration, enhance IT efficiencies, increase clinician and patient satisfaction and most importantly – deliver the best care.Hyland Healthcare’s enterprise imaging solutions solve a common challenge for health systems of medical images being hidden in multiple PACS, legacy archives, specialty department imaging systems and even CDs and DVDs. Hyland Healthcare’s solutions enable health systems to capture, manage, view and share all imaging-related content to support enhanced clinical decision making.“Our enterprise imaging solutions will play an important role in supporting UK HealthCare’s Epic EMR with image and content management,” said Sandra Lillie, director of enterprise imaging sales at Hyland. “This strategy, together with its EMR integration with OnBase, will give UK HealthCare the critical digital tools that build on its technology leadership to improve the quality of care.” –NSMedical
