Translator Provides Seamless, Multi-Site Interoperability Facilitation of Image Sharing and Collaboration

The MPI translator provides a foundation for true interoperability, offering seamless image sharing and collaboration.

ScImage announces the availability of a new Master Patient Index (MPI) Translator that enables healthcare providers to deliver quality care to patients based on important diagnostic imaging data residing in disparate systems, often located at unrelated facilities.

Traditionally, an MPI strategy to transport images between subscribers in a cooperative environment utilizes a known MPI reference. However, strategic discussions between competing parties usually end up with no real solution. Complications develop when dealing with independent and sometimes competing institutions or multi-specialty groups. This requires an independent and intelligent translator that can provide fast and automated image transfer across multiple environments.

PICOM365 corrects this problem by using an end-to-end image transfer with an adaptive translator. The MPI translator provides a foundation for true interoperability, offering seamless image sharing and collaboration. This intelligent engine pulls and pushes images across multiple facilities and manages a seamless productive clinical workflow with comprehensive reading packages.

When a new imaging order comes into PICOM365 from any facility, it triggers an event in the translation logic engine. The translation engine makes the decision based on an existing knowledge base and the latest information from all connected sites. It then automatically pulls all relevant priors from all facilities and makes the prior exams ready at the originating facility. All this happens before the current exam reaches the local PACS. When the reading physician opens a new exam for reading, prior exams from one or more external facilities naturally appear in the viewer. The end result is increased quality of care, productivity and physician confidence in the reporting due to this new access of comprehensive information. Every time a new mapping is formulated, it adds that information to the knowledge base, and the system keeps learning.

PICOM365 is the true solution to interoperability across disparate diagnostic reading environments. Automated just-in-time priors are no longer an item on a reading physician’s wish list.
