Kestral at RANZCR 2014

August 2014

The RANZCR Combined Scientific Meeting will be conducted on the 4th to the 7th of September at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. The Kestral team will be demonstrating some new features for Karisma v4 including Karisma Kiosk, Results Notifications and touchscreen technology for basic workflow tasks.

The Karisma Kiosk is one of the many new features of Karisma v4, allowing patients to confirm their appointment and demographic details on arrival in the department. Patients that receive an SMS generated QR code can simply scan their code at the Karisma Kiosk to confirm their details, update their arrival status and acknowledge that a member of staff will attend to them shortly.

The incorporation of a Results Notifications system in Karisma v4 gives radiologists the ability to communicate with referring practitioners where there is cause to urgently review an unexpected finding. This improves efficiency and will be highly beneficial to departmental workflow and clinical outcomes to patients. Referrer acknowledgement of the SMS is returned to the reporting clinician.

Karisma v4 offers a simple, intuitive interface with large touch screen buttons that simplify routine workflow tasks for busy receptionists and radiographers. The new interface takes virtually no learning, with every option clearly displayed, making it easy to use on next generation Windows® 8 computers.

If you’re attending this years’ RANZCR, please come by and see us. We would be happy to take you through a demonstration of the new Karisma v4 features. 

We look forward to seeing you and welcome your feedback.
