Interoperability Shines with Visage at IHE Europe Connectathon 2016

June 16, 2016

Comprehensive testing affirms Visage’s commitment to interoperability leadership

SAN DIEGO, CA, June 16, 2016 – Visage Imaging, Inc. (“Visage”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Pro Medicus Ltd. (ASX: PME), has announced the successful validation of numerous interoperability capabilities of the Visage® 7 Enterprise Imaging Platform performed at the recent Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) Connectathon 2016, held April 11-15 in Bochum, Germany. Visage 7 enables enterprise imaging with amazingly fast, thin-client, server-side processing technology, as well as simple diagnostic mobile access via Visage Ease Pro®.

IHE’s vision is to “Enable seamless and secure access to health information whenever and wherever needed.” The annual IHE Europe Connectathon is one of the largest interoperability testing events in the world, bringing health IT professionals and industry together to advance health IT interoperability.

As a leading enterprise diagnostic viewer, Visage 7 is on the forefront of interoperability supporting modern industry standards for information exchange. At the recent IHE Europe Connectathon 2016, Visage successfully tested and validated a number of profiles and actors with Visage 7, including:

  • Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT): Image Manager and Image Display
  • Image Object Change Management (IOCM): Image Manager, Image Display, and Change Requestor
  • Cross-Enterprise Clinical Documents Share (XDS.b): Document Consumer

Malte Westerhoff, PhD, Co-founder and Global CTO of Visage Imaging explained, “IHE provides the global foundation for healthcare interoperability. We’re proud Visage 7 is one of the first, if not the only, thin-client enterprise diagnostic viewer that provides comprehensive support for multi-modality breast imaging, including digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT). Our successful validation of the DBT profile confirms our approach and paves the way for institutions to eliminate specialty breast workstations.”

Dr. Westerhoff continued, “Visage 7 also includes a comprehensive toolset for quality assurance (QA), making it one of the first, if not the only, thin-client enterprise diagnostic viewer with this critical functionality. Our successful validation of the IOCM profile, as both a change consumer and change requestor, enables automatic synchronization to vendor neutral archives (VNAs), DICOM archives, and other systems without any manual intervention. Practically speaking, the implementation of a modular, multi-vendor imaging infrastructure without automation and support of IOCM would require manual workarounds that most institutions are ill equipped to handle. With Visage 7, interoperability is both standardized and safe for the world’s largest imaging institutions.”
