RALEIGH, N.C., July 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Viztek, the digital imaging solution provider, announced today an upgrade to its Opal-Ortho PACS solution for orthopedic practices. The solution offers one single appliance that controls every aspect of orthopedics imaging, integrating the DR or CR solution and the PACS for optimal efficiency.
Ideal for orthopedic practices of all sizes, Opal-Ortho can easily fit in a large practice with many physicians, as well as private practices that do not have on-site IT staff. The Opal-Ortho suite occupies a very small footprint and allows the practice to grow without any additional hardware. The upgraded Opal-Ortho appliance can house 100,000 imaging studies, enough for several years of continuous operation. Many practices currently utilize multiple appliances for the PACS, CR/DR, and EMR Interfacing and need to link them together to ensure each system can properly interface. This manual linking introduces complexity and the possibility for errors, which is not found in the more streamlined Opal-Ortho solution.
The solution offers orthopedics practices the opportunity to integrate mobile devices such as iPad® tablets or Android devices, giving them an engaging method of displaying images to patients and colleagues.
The Opal-Ortho's digital templating was significantly upgraded, and now provides physicians with immediate calculations to help them create more precise surgical plans before operating. It significantly streamlines the measurement process, allowing the physician to see more patients and reduce any possible operational delays. Another efficiency gain is found in the system's automatic learning protocol, an intelligent feature that actively learns the doctor's system usage patterns and allows them to perform key functions with less mouse clicks and fewer drag-and-drop actions.
"Our 'one box' functionality means practices can now have the whole suite in a small footprint, with the added bonus of simple mobile device connectivity," said Steve Deaton, VP of Sales for Viztek. "Patients who need such care often face tough news and decisions, and there is a level of personal care and attention to detail that comes when doctors can show patients images up close. We estimate the typical practice can save 15 minutes a day per physician through improved efficiency, a number that ultimately allows patients to receive more personal care."
