In the work area examine are a number of functions implemented to speed up the work flow and help to organize.
At the work area examine all relevant data of patients and the carried out examinations are combined on one screen. Every patient goes through several stages. The state award is made either completely automatically or simply by touch screen or mouse click.
So it always be consulted when the patient arrives, whether it is a patient appointment, how long he has been waiting for, where he currently is and what tests are to be made, etc..
This patient-tracking will help you to organise your everyday work better and keep track of patient flow.
Due to the uniform data base of our RIS, PACS & WEB, possible interfaces are fully integrated or fully eliminated. Thus, a clear and reliable identification and classification is guaranteed and the consistency of the patients-, image-, dictation- and reporting data is given implicitly.
Once a patient is registered, the patient and examination data will be forwarded directly to the appropriate modalities in form of a work list. Thus, the double entry at examination equipment is obsolete and the images are automatically assigned to the patient during the examination. In case of incorrect entries (wrong choice of a worklist patient, "shooting" the images to the same patient, etc.), you can correct this from any PC easily and immediately.
With the seamless integration of our XR RIS & PACS, each workplace becomes to a RIS or PACS station. So, also the work area examine contains an image- and result viewer. This means that all images and reports of a patient can be viewed and controlled in terms of quality. The also contained ducument function allows an easy printing of the current images, the refilming of role models or the burning of CD´s & DVD´s.
„on the spot“
Necessary add-on benefits (contrast media, ancillary investigations, etc.) which arise in the course of the examination can gathered directly in the workspace examine.
During the anamnesis elicitation, examination-specific questionnaires can be entered directly into a mask. The questions follow your specifications and are optimized for a fast, time-saving input (selection fields, yes/no fields).
The data collection "on the spot" by experienced RT's ensures meaningful, reliable results and not least a more accurate accounting and statistics.
precise radiation dose documentation
Using DICOM-MPPS, informations about the start and end point of an examination can be readed out. The patient tracking and status allocation can happen without manual intervention and fully automated.
In addition, a number of other examination parameters can be read out from the modalities. Radiation dose data (kV, mAs, FDP) or the layer thickness can be automatically transferred from each examination unit. The dose values are assigned to the individual examinations, and thus accurately documented.
A built-in sequence history shows all passed stages of a patient including waiting time and "agent" (secretary, RT, doctor).
Thus it can be well understood when and by whom the patient was registered, what examinations have been already done in which rooms, if examinations are still open or scheduled for a later date or if they have already been released for the diagnose or if they already diagnosed, etc..
A built-in feedback loop between RT and doctor allows a better interaction and more concerted work.
