INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Sept. 5, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Heart IT, the global leader that pioneered the first FDA approved zero-footprint medical imaging workstation, has joined Hendricks Regional Health to announce the implementation of Heart IT’s WebPAX® platform to help manage and distribute cardiac images.
Hendricks Regional Health is a non-profit Magnet® hospital located in Danville, Indiana, serving the residents of central Indiana and west-suburban Indianapolis. Hendricks Regional Health needed an effective approach for distributing cardiology images to the physicians tasked with reading the images. WebPAX® was able to provide an optimal solution for the hospital through several key features. WebPAX® allows Hendricks Regional Health to acquire cardiology images directly from their scanners and then make those images available to cardiologists on the web, on a zero-footprint basis. Despite being web-based, WebPAX® provides diagnostic quality with FDA 510k clearance. This unique capability converts virtually any computer with Internet access into a workstation.
Donna Haggard, MSN, RN, Clinical Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Lab at Hendricks Regional Health, stated the following: “WebPAX® provided the ideal solution to our organization. It is critical that we deliver or make it possible for physicians on-site to receive medical images in an effective and timely manner. Unfortunately, medical images are often distributed manually by printing CDs and then physically delivering those discs to different locations via courier. The WebPAX® technology allows us to receive the image from the scanner and make it immediately available on the web. Our Cardiologists are then able to read the image quickly – regardless of their location. Our goal is to provide the best medical care to our community. WebPAX® is allowing us to deliver the top quality care that our patients expect from us.”
