  • 4. Considerations: “To App or Not to App”Consideration: Radiologist Reviewing Imaging ResultsEITHER: Key is access to priors and image manipulation toolsNO APP for Referring: Primary care physicians and specialists willlikely view images and reports ad-hoc from wherever the image wastaken; Access will likely come through EMR/EHR.Viewer needs to be: system and device agnostic, no download, notraining requiredConsideration: Referring physicians accessing EMRDEDICATED APP: Primary care physicians and specialists will likelyonly access dedicated patient records in one systemConsideration: Patients accessing the EMR resultsNo APP: Portal part of Meaningful Use Requirement
  • 5. p.5Simple to deploy and maintain• Zero overhead for high speed performance• Latest enterprise access technology without replacing a legacy PACS or archiveOn-demand and Ad-hoc• Radiologists and physicians able to access entire patient’s portfolio including images,reports and other supporting, non-DICOM data• Enable real-time collaboration between clinical usersEasy to Adapt• Simplify workflow as independent viewer or embedded withinEMR or HIS eliminating multiple log-ins• Intuitive User Design that doesn’t require dedicated trainingPhysical Conditions• Device durability, ambient lighting, security….Overall Design ConsiderationsVue Motion is FDA cleared for iPad mobile use
  • 6. Security utmost concernBut consider the alternatives:Applications should be part of an enterprise security architecture thatconsiders confidentiality, data integrity, and availability.• Personal device (BYOD) versus corporately issued• Theft and data loss• Compliance to government regulations (i.e. FDA)• Data retained on device (ex. dedicated app) or centralized on server (ex. zero footprint)• Physical security “screens”• External network accessed by unpredictable user patterns or demandsp.6
  • 7. Healthcare Reform:Areas of focus for imaging leadersPatient Satisfaction• Reimbursement will be affected by patient satisfaction surveys. While none of the measures relate to imaging, abad experience in the imaging department could affect the overall patients’ survey rating• More than 5 percent of all unique patient seen by the EP during the EHR reporting period (or their authorizedrepresentatives) view, download, or transmit to a third party their health informationReferring Physician Satisfaction• Referring physicians are key in the ACO model. Keeping them happy and engaged will reduce ‘referral leakage’Cost Reduction• Standardization of care practices, processes and infrastructure provide facilities with an opportunity to reducecost and impact the bottom linePublic© 2012, Carestream HealthApps that provide easy access to patient records forboth the patient and the referring physician whileeliminating the costs and risks associated with physicalmedia (paper, CD/DVD, etc.) will impact the 3 focusareas described aboveThe Accountable Care Act (ACA) puts emphasis on
