Dicom Systems Means Continuity of Care at ProMedica

Campbell, CA, May 23, 2017 – Dicom Systems (www.dcmsys.com), healthcare IT company and Enterprise Imaging interoperability expert, today announced that ProMedica Toledo Hospital in Toledo, OH, has deployed its Workflow Unifier platform as a business continuity solution for Radiologists in planned and unplanned PACS downtime scenarios.

“PACS downtime, planned or unplanned, is an all too real scenario in fast-paced enterprise imaging, and there’s never a convenient time for images to be unavailable for Radiologists,” said Florent Saint-Clair, Dicom Systems External Vice President. “The novel way ProMedica has chosen to utilize the Unifier appliances is a testament to the inherent vendor neutrality and peace of mind we bring to the table. The Unifier ecosystem has the versatility to fulfill a broad variety of enterprise imaging missions, no matter what PACS or VNA vendor may be in place.  For us, no mission is more important than continuity of patient care.”

“We are thrilled with how much the Unifier platform assists us now in our workflows,” says Free Beck, ProMedica PACS Administrator.  “ProMedica’s IT philosophy has always been to create a solution with as few break points as possible; having the DICOM Router as a moderator is definitely a key to building a successful Enterprise Imaging solution.

ProMedica originally deployed the Unifier as a solution for Radiologists for planned or unplanned downtimes. We found that the advanced routing and workflow design features are allowing us to create a much smoother transition from one system to another as well, a key toolset to have in our portfolio!”
