Commissure RadWhere for Radiology to Integrate with Visage Solutions

Visage Imaging, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY), and Nuance’s Dictaphone Healthcare Solutions Division, announced a relationship in which Visage will integrate Commissure RadWhere(TM) for Radiology and Visage(TM) solutions to help drive optimized diagnostic workflow across the healthcare enterprise.

Dictaphone’s Commissure RadWhere(TM) for Radiology application will be integrated with Visage PACS and Visage CS to provide a streamlined solution for speech-driven clinical documentation and enterprise-wide advanced visualization. Visage’s web and thin-client technologies make it easy to deploy this integrated solution across the entire hospital enterprise, independent of physical location, existing workstation equipment, or other factors that typically limit the scope of existing infrastructures. The optimized workflow, combined with easy server-based deployment, helps healthcare organizations to significantly speed report turnaround time, reduce costs, and improve quality of care.

“Multi-site healthcare facilities that have disparate RIS, PACS, and 3D applications running are demanding solutions to bridge the gap between systems and help streamline workflow,” said Michael Mardini, Vice-President, Medical Imaging, Dictaphone Healthcare Solutions. “By integrating our respective applications, we are providing radiologists the control they need via a single bi-directional interface to create a more seamless diagnostic workflow, drive productivity and fully utilize their medical imaging IT infrastructure.”

In addition to launching images for interpretation, the speech-driven reporting software can be launched directly from within the Visage PACS worklist or viewers. Regardless of its imaging and health information configuration, healthcare facilities can greatly enhance clinical processes through the use of a powerful data-driven, structured speech reporting application in combination with thin client-enabled PACS.

“We are very excited about the opportunities of our partnership with the Dictaphone Healthcare Solutions Division,” said Marcelo Lima, President of Visage Imaging, Inc. “Dictaphone’s speech-enabled, workflow orchestration and documentation solutions will help to integrate Visage’s PACS and advanced visualization solutions more deeply and seamlessly in many cases, thus offering significantly improved reporting tools. Both Commissure RadWhere(TM) for Radiology and Visage have been designed to improve the enterprise-wide diagnostic workflow, and thus form a perfect match.”
