Sipacs Presentation

  1. 1. SiPACS ® : Enterprise PACS Solution from Sikraft Solutions Ltd
  2. 2. Picture Archiving & Communication with SiPACS ® <ul><li>PACS is a digital image management software system for receiving and storing digital images from different modalities, archiving images both on/off line onto various media, distributing softcopy images through network for viewing primary diagnosis and consultation, and communicating with external information systems. </li></ul><ul><li>SiPACS® is compliant with the DICOM 3.0 standard as defined by ACR-NEMA. </li></ul>
  3. 3. A Typical PACS Network
  4. 4. Introducing SiPACS ® <ul><li>SiPACS ® is a full-hospital PACS, supporting all the imaging activities in a hospital and integrating modalities, image storage and distribution, softcopy viewing for primary diagnosis and consultation, archiving, and external information systems. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Benefits of using PACS <ul><li>Optimizes and streamlines diagnosis and reporting workflows, and patient flows. </li></ul><ul><li>Reduces data entry error by facilitating single-point data entry and eliminating re-entry of data through modalities. </li></ul><ul><li>Optimizes resource utilizations – machine time, consultant time can be optimally scheduled and utilized. </li></ul><ul><li>Enhances machines’ as well as consultants’ throughputs. </li></ul><ul><li>Reduces and optimizes film-handling tasks as these are distributed electronically. </li></ul><ul><li>Eliminates loss of films and reports. </li></ul><ul><li>Ensures availability and access of images and reports on-line, any time, and from any designated location. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Benefits (Contd.) <ul><li>Same image, reports can be shared for retrieval and viewing from multiple locations by several consultants simultaneously. </li></ul><ul><li>Reduces image and report retrieval time. </li></ul><ul><li>It allows manipulation of digital images which can never be done with hard-copy film. </li></ul><ul><li>Reduces time to initiate clinical action. </li></ul><ul><li>Reduces reporting as well as patient turn-around time. </li></ul><ul><li>Makes historical patient data retrieval easier during repeat/follow-up visits. </li></ul><ul><li>Improves quality of patient care by the use of multimedia reports and tele-consultation. </li></ul><ul><li>Saves money by reducing film consumption, reduced archival space, less handling and overhead. </li></ul>
