Wake Radiology Selects Mach7 Technologies for Enterprise-wide Vendor Neutral Archive
Mach7’s VNA is the latest addition in Wake Radiology’s phased rollout of an enterprise image management solution
Burlington, VT – November 18, 2014 – Mach7 Technologies®, global provider of enterprise image management systems and services, announced that one of the largest, radiologist owned, freestanding imaging practices in the country, Wake Radiology, has partnered with Mach7 to deploy Enterprise-wide Vendor Neutral Archive.
“We are expanding our partnership with Mach7 because we value the flexibility this comprehensive solution offers,” stated Brian Appleby, clinical systems manager, Wake Radiology. “We initially approached this project in June 2013 with a focus on solving key image communication and workflow challenges we faced with our existing PACS implementation. After deployment of Mach7’s Communication Workflow Engine, we have progressively added Mach7’s study prefetching solution and their DICOM/HL7 adapter. It was a natural next step to implement the VNA for study archiving.”
Wake Radiology provides highly specialized diagnostic services. Implementing Mach7 Enterprise Imaging Platform will provide the imaging practice with the following benefits:
- Flexibility – Allows a phased deployment meeting key business and clinical goals
- Communication and workflow proficiency – Removes manual management and archival of studies; ensures images are stored and routed based on Wake-defined rules
- Bandwidth freed – Automated, intelligent study prefetching reduces bandwidth demands
- Archiving leveraging a new VNA – Studies are cleansed, normalized and consolidated in a central repository facilitating image access, sharing and management
