Philips' iSite PACS is reshaping the medical imaging and information industry landscape. As a leading PACS vendor, Philips offers one of the fastest growing enterprise PACS solutions in North America, iSite PACS is proving that filmless enterprise distribution is possible — without the prohibitive up-front capital expenditures and limiting technology associated with traditional PACS administration.
More enhanced than a PACS viewer, iSite PACS interfaces into a health care institution's existing infrastructure enabling all departments to prove ROI (Return on Investment) at each stage of deployment.
With Philips' Enterprise First deployment approach, hundreds of leading hospitals and imaging centers are increasing overall productivity and bottom line — but most importantly — they are improving the level of care delivered to their patients.
Across the Entire Enterprise - Enabling Technology
The design of iSite PACS reflects the realities of hospital environments from a clinical, financial, technological and operational perspective. From small community hospitals to large multi-site academic institutions, iSite PACS image distribution, always online long term PACS storage and advanced radiology reading stations scale and integrate into a hospital's existing network. A standards-based, single database solution, iSite's architecture was designed to improve workflow and efficiency across the entire enterprise for clinicians, technologists, the IT department and administrators. With advanced API functionality, iSite PACS can also image-enable an institution's Electronic Medical Record (EMR). Many hospitals have successfully integrated iSite PACS into their enterprise-wide EMRs.
Better Patient Care - Clinical Knowledge
iSite PACS was designed by clinicians who believe that improved patient care is the most important goal when developing a product and a PACS software solution. Clinical time should be spent on diagnosis and therapy, not trying to decipher multiple tabs and buttons. From an easy-to-use interface to having all images archived online and immediately available with the click of the mouse, iSite PACS provides the tools needed to deliver the best possible care to patients. And because we believe that PACS can be life critical, Philips provides a 99.99% uptime guarantee.
Advanced Workflow - The Right Solution
iSite is a brokerless PACS solution that integrates with pre-existing HIS/RIS systems and provides workflow across the enterprise:
- Work-to-do lists and Order/Protocol
- Scheduled exam list for modalities
- Referring Physicians:
- Full view of their patients
- Critical Care:
- ICU/ER/OR and patient ward-specific worklists
Lowering the Total Cost of Ownership - Shared Financial Partnership
Philips' delivery model is unique to the industry. Institutions can evaluate iSite PACS with no obligation through Philips' Pilot Program. The evaluation enables all departments to prove ROI and proof-of-concept while successfully distributing images across the network before committing to a long-term agreement.
iSite PACS enhances efficiencies throughout the hospital. Analysis at some of Philips' customer sites has demonstrated dramatic financial ROI. The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center is realizing a 43% decrease in study management costs across its 18-hospital network (up to $14 million annually) and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center expects to save $30 million over eight years.
