Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc has introduced its new Exa Enterprise Imaging Platform at HIMSS 2017 in Orlando, Fla. The system offers a diagnostic quality, zero-footprint universal viewer for DICOM and non-DICOM images, server-side rendering, for fast access to large files, such as 3D mammography, with no prefetching required, and cybersecurity with no data transferred to or stored on workstations to minimize unwanted exposure to patient data.

The new collaborative workflow platform provides hospitals and imaging centers the ability to view images across departments and facilities, regardless of image source, for DICOM and non-DICOM images and a vendor neutral archive for central storage of images. For women’s health departments and clinics seeking to consolidate viewing, it offers universal viewing of images from a single work station. Cardiology departments and clinics can utilize the same viewer for echocardiography and stress echocardiography images.

Widespread adoption of electronic health records and an industry shift to value-based care and reimbursement models demands interoperability across disparate systems in the enterprise, particularly with regard to image sharing.

“The new Exa Enterprise Imaging Platform reflects how Konica Minolta is reshaping healthcare IT through a commitment to innovative and efficient solutions,” says Steve Deaton, vice president of healthcare IT sales. “Our end-to-end enterprise wide diagnostic imaging management solutions contribute to improved care, reduced costs, and necessary security.”
