Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) to Install Imorgon Ultrasound Enhancement System
Imorgon System Improves Patient Safety
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Oct. 28, 2014 &madash; Imorgon Medical today announced the planned installation of its Imorgon Ultrasound Enhancement System™ at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) in the Department of Radiology and the Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment. The wholly integrated software solution from Imorgon empowers diagnostic ultrasound to deliver the highest quality of patient care through improved workflow efficiencies, diagnostic accuracy, patient safety and satisfaction.
The Imorgon System is an advanced solution that seamlessly integrates with enterprise Picture Archive Communication System (PACS) workstations, and the system’s harmonization engine provides vendor-neutral compatibility with all major ultrasound and dictation systems for streamlined workflow efficiency, greater diagnostic precision and accurate reporting.
“We are thrilled to have CHOP install the Imorgon System to address their entire ultrasound imaging process in a setting where safety and accuracy is of the utmost importance, and imaging is routinely performed on infants, children and pregnant women,” said Lloyd Kreuzer, Ph.D., chief executive officer of Imorgon. “Our Sonographer Quality Control (Q/C) tools allow for smoother and more efficient ultrasound exams, therefore patients spend less time on the exam table during a scan, which is critically important in a setting such as CHOP. Specifically, ultrasound study exceptions, or patient and study information, can be easily corrected and the ability to add or edit annotations, make measurements, delete images and split or merge studies is quickly performed by the sonographer directly at the system.
“In addition, our integrated electronic reporting auto-populates report templates with patient exam observations and findings, so redundant dictation is eliminated. As a result, ultrasound reports will be more complete, accurate and easy to interpret, which translates into better patient care as well as improved departmental workflow and cost savings.”
Imorgon’s Ultrasound Enhancement System is based on the DICOM industry standard for transferring images and other medical information between computers, and on the HL7 communications standard for Hospital Information Systems (HIS), which reduces the potential for enterprise workflow disruptions and downtime.
Imorgon Medical, headquartered in Redwood City, Calif., was founded by ultrasound industry veterans who were key members of the technology team that invented ultrasound PACS in the 1990s. Building on decades of ultrasound expertise, Imorgon is dedicated to producing a scalable software solution that offers highly intuitive functionality and enhances the PACS viewing environment, ensuring ease-of-use and the ability to leverage existing IT and infrastructure investments. By using computer technology in a unique way, the company developed an innovative solution that enables the full potential of diagnostic ultrasound by improving workflow efficiency and diagnostic accuracy.
