Innovative Solution Helps Ensure the Most Relevant Clinical Information is Available During Diagnosis

By Improving Interoperability Between Data Sources, the Solution Helps Radiologists Participate Actively in Patient Care

ATLANTA--()--McKesson announces Conserus Imaging Fellow™, an innovative solution that can help automate and simplify access to relevant clinical data by integrating information from the PACS with other data sources such as EHRs. The solution presents the relevant information for the specific clinical scenario at the point of care, within the imaging cockpit.

The patented solution is a key part of Conserus™, a suite of flexible, vendor-agnostic solutions for healthcare IT enterprise and diagnostic imaging. The solution suite is designed to help healthcare providers of all sizes and complexities go beyond simple VNAs and traditional departmental systems to orchestrate workflows by enabling interoperability.

Conserus Imaging Fellow leverages McKesson’s domain knowledge in imaging and workflow. In the move towards value-based care it is important that clinicians have the complete patient health picture when making clinical decisions. The increasing adoption of EHRs has made much of the available patient clinical information digital however it often doesn’t translate to effective utilization at the point of care, due to complexities around navigating the vast amount of data. Conserus Imaging Fellow breaks this barrier and helps automate the use of clinical data by making it accessible in the imaging cockpit, within the context of the task at hand. This information may include lab results, medications, problems lists, notes or pathology reports; information that previously an imaging clinician would have had to manually search out from multiple systems. In doing so, this solution helps address key challenges: access to valuable context-sensitive information, helping to reduce errors from manually searching for information, and helping to improve efficiency in the imaging workflow.

“In an industry as dynamic as healthcare IT and imaging, companies need to be listening to their customers and looking for smart solutions to help meet their changing needs. Conserus Imaging Fellow represents a new and fresh way of presenting contextually relevant information to the imaging specialist,” said Erkan Akyuz, President, McKesson Imaging and Workflow Solutions. “We are excited how Conserus Imaging Fellow helps improve interoperability for clinical effectiveness, resource utilization, and ultimately helps provide better patient care.”
