Apollo Unifies All Patient Media With Enterprise Patient Media Manager
Date:4/8/2009

Solution Improves Patient Care and Provider Efficiency with Simple and Secure Clinical Multimedia Management -- Currently Being Implemented at The Hospital for Sick Children

FALLS CHURCH, Va., April 8 //PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Apollo, a provider of clinical multimedia solutions, today announced the release of Apollo Enterprise Patient Media Manager (Apollo EPMM(TM)), an enterprise solution that, for the first time, transforms distributed patient media into one unified record. Apollo EPMM(TM) is a multi-tiered, open-system software solution that helps healthcare institutions improve patient care and operational efficiency by enabling simple and secure management of, and access to, distributed clinical multimedia and data.

An evolutionary step past traditional Radiology PACS, Apollo EPMM(TM) is an interoperable solution that optimizes existing resources throughout the healthcare enterprise. By linking legacy systems across multiple departments and specialties, Apollo EPMM(TM) unifies all patient media without disruption, thereby transforming previously inaccessible multimedia files into a unified clinical information solution. The Apollo solution was developed in partnership with The Hospital for Sick Children, Canada's most research-intensive hospital and one of the world's largest and most respected pediatric academic health sciences centers.

"Our clinicians were capturing a significant number of images; however, they were stored in different ways, making it extremely difficult to access and retrieve the images when they were most needed," said Daniela Crivianu-Gaita, CIO, The Hospital for Sick Children. "When we recognized the challenge our clinicians were up against, we engaged Apollo for a centrally-managed, enterprise solution that would meet clinician workflow requirements, integrate with other clinical systems and ensure secure, easy and efficient access to patient images. We expect Apollo EPMM will help us further enhance patient safety and enable our clinicians to work more efficiently and effectively."

Apollo is a leader in the development of digital pathology management and telepathology solutions for clinical and research laboratories. Today, Apollo's open enterprise PACS for pathology, PathPACS(R), is being used in government and private hospitals, laboratories, and teaching institutions domestically and abroad. Apollo EPMM(TM) extends the power and benefits of PathPACS(R) into the entire healthcare enterprise, providing hospitals with enterprise-level management of all clinical multimedia.

Apollo EPMM(TM) optimizes clinician workflow and efficiency by providing a single and secure interface for accessing patient multimedia across the enterprise. The solution is multi-tiered: integrating, managing, securing and sharing multimedia and data within departments, across the enterprise and between institutions. In addition, Apollo EPMM(TM) features comprehensive security including rules-based access and full audit trails, further ensuring patient safety and regulatory compliance.

"Clinical multimedia improves patient care, providing clinicians with visual and/or aural information about a patient and his or her medical history over time. However, outside of traditional PACS deployments, clinical multimedia is virtually inaccessible and unsecured," said Mark Newburger, CEO of Apollo. "Apollo EPMM(TM) provides hospitals with an easy-to-use application that integrates with a multitude of capture devices and information systems to create a single, unified patient multimedia record that is easily accessible, secure, compliant, and centrally managed."

Additional benefits of Apollo EPMM(TM) include:

  • Easy, uniform multimedia access and management
  • Integrates and links multimedia with wide range of hospital solutions including information systems and electronic medical records
  • Ability to capture, manage and archive existing and future multimedia file types
  • Device-agnostic, open-system approach enables institutions to leverage legacy resources and adapt to future software and hardware changes
  • Adaptable to clinician workflows, department-to-department, institution-to-institution

Apollo EPMM(TM) is an enterprise solution that can be deployed on a department-to-department basis. Apollo currently provides specialty specific solutions for Pathology, Dermatology, Gastroenterology, Ophthalmology, Plastic Surgery and Pediatrics, among others.
