San Diego Imaging Selects Mach7 Technologies as Enterprise Image Management, VNA and Physician & Patient Portal Partner
SDI expands use of Mach7 Enterprise Imaging Platform to advance patient care through enhanced clinical communication workflows and consolidated imaging storage
Burlington, VT – February 21, 2014 – Mach7 Technologies, a global provider of enterprise image management systems that allow healthcare enterprises to easily identify, connect, and share diagnostic imaging and patient care intelligence, announced today that San Diego Imaging (SDI) has chosen the Mach7 Enterprise Imaging Platform for its Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA), and Advanced Communications Workflow Engine. SDI will also deploy Mach7’s Physician & Patient Portal which allows secure access and sharing of patient data between referring physicians, clinicians and patients.
This strategic partnership will support SDI’s continued expansion activities. The Mach7 Enterprise Imaging Platform will rapidly cleanse, synchronize and consolidate patient data across SDI’s diverse and growing enterprise. Patient data from new sites and affiliated hospitals will be seamlessly and rapidly integrated delivering real-time patient information where and when it is needed.
“Our recent merger with North County Radiology Medical Group has challenged us with the task of managing disparate silos of patient information,” said Richard Elwell, Systems Administrator at San Diego Imaging. “The Mach7 VNA and Communications Workflow Engine allow us to break down the barriers between disparate departmental PACS. Mach7’s platform gives our team the ability to link all images, pictures, videos, and exam data to the patient’s record from one consolidated archive. After a lengthy assessment period, we chose the Mach7 platform knowing that it will support the complexities of this project and our continued expansion.”
“The breadth of the Mach7 platform, coupled with the culture of innovation and partnership that the Mach7 team brings to the project, helped drive our decision,” said Rick Padelford, Executive Vice President at San Diego Imaging. “We’re excited about this collaborative partnership and look forward to offering our physicians the ability to access images and reports, directly through their EMR, and from any Internet-aware access point through the Mach7 Physician & Patient Portal.”
