SoftLink implements C-PACS at Nanavati Hospital, Mumbai
After understanding the exact requirement of hospital, SoftLink deployed C-PACS (Cardiology PACS) solution connecting to Cathlab with approximately one year of on-line storage on a high-end RAIDL5 server to store patient images. The solution has created a centralized archive for the entire department.
The medical director of the Hospital Dr. Mohanty said, “The Solution has enabled doctors to access patient studies from diagnostic review stations on the hospital’s local area network (LAN), and they are no longer required to visit Cathlab for accessing Patient studies”. He further added “Two networked enterprise review stations that are strategically placed to increase physicians’ access to recent as well as the older images during patient interaction and consultation, resulting in improved workflow as well as patient care in the cardiology department.”
SoftLink’s C-PACS architecture is highly scalable, allowing hospitals to start with a single-lab solution and move to multi-center and multi-modality network based solutions over a period of time. The solution supports other imaging modalities such as electro physiology and vascular labs, cardiac CT, Color Dopplers, 2-D/3-D Echo making it a “ONE Stop” solution for image archival, storage and review for the hospital!
The simultaneous review of patient images from multiple modalities, in multiple windows positions the cardiologist to make a better diagnosis as he has 360 degree view of all the diagnostic images of a patient on ONE screen.
