An interoperability solution for medical imaging, InteleOne® XE links clinicians to patient images and reports stored across disparate HIS, EMR, PACS and VNA systems. By enabling radiologists to read from a across multiple PACS, with seamless access to patient priors, our clients are able to achieve massive productivity gains.
In speaking with healthcare organizations of all sizes, we’re finding that there is a common set of challenges that is being felt across the industry – and they’re not just related to aging legacy systems.
Replacing a legacy hospital PACS system can be a challenging endeavour. In addition to the time required to research vendors’ offerings and selecting the right solution, resources must be allocated to deploy it across multiple sites and migrate terabytes of data to the new archive so physicians can access priors when the system goes live.
Given the amount of resources and investments that go into the process, a growing number of hospitals are using imaging interoperability solutions to enhance existing systems and delay PACS replacements.
Over the past 18 months, we’ve been happy to share a number of success stories from clients using InteleOne® XE to implement cross-enterprise workflows. Leveraging the solution’s interoperability, these clients have been able to drastically reduce turnaround times, better utilize subspecialists, read greater volumes of studies in less time, and more.

In reading rooms across the country each and every day, radiologists are faced with the possibility of having to interact with multiple health systems, sites of service and PACS. Even within a single health system, there may be multiple PACS due to recent consolidation or other specialty reasons for having varied platforms. Whatever the reason, multiple PACS makes radiology’s workflow inefficient, leaving a group unable to effectively have subspecialty exams read by a subspecialist or leaving an individual radiologist logging in and out of multiple PACS throughout their workday.
