Quick access to medical images and reports in any Manipal Hospital network
Manipal Hospitals has entered into an agreement with Fujifilm India to leverage the latter’s innovative digital technology for storing sensitive medical documents and images. Under the long-term agreement, Manipal Hospitals would be provided with a large-scale Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), powered by Fujifilm India. The PACS eliminates the need for manually storing, retrieving, and sending sensitive information, films, and reports.
In addition, the next-generation system will enable the storage of medical documents and images in secure off-site servers while the PACS software will ensure that such sensitive medical data can be accessed via mobile devices and workstations from anywhere in the world. The deployment will cover 23 hospitals and 45 teleradiology facilities under the umbrella of Manipal Health Enterprises across the country.
With a modular design, expandable to all future centers of Manipal Hospitals, the state-of-the-art Radiology Information System (RIS) PACS, which has been developed as a part of the engagement, is now available for radiology and cardiology specialties. It is scalable to more clinical specialties and covers three million studies per year currently.
Dilip Jose, MD & CEO, Manipal Hospitals, said, “The interoperability that this solution offers will accelerate our progress toward digitisation across our network of hospitals. This solution will further help promote the penetration of Manipal Hospital’s clinical healthcare services across its network while making it convenient for both clinicians and patients.”.
