Kestral at RSNA 2011
From November 27 to December 2 this year, Chicago, ILL plays host to the Radiological Society of North America’s (RSNA) annual meeting where medical imaging professionals from all over the world gather and discuss the latest innovations in radiology. For almost 100 years, RSNA has stimulated and helped to advance the highest standards of radiology and related sciences through education and research.
At the 97th RSNA Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting, a number of educational courses, scientific presentations, lectures and exhibits are on show from more than 700 international companies showcasing innovative technology and healthcare services.
Kestral CEO Kevin Moynihan is on hand at RSNA to present Karisma in conjunction with iSite PACS. The exhibit is a cooperative effort between Kestral and our respected colleagues at Philips Healthcare.
Tightly integrated at the back end according to the HL7 standard and the relevant IHE profiles, Karisma and iSite together offer Patient Demographic updates (ADT) including patient merges; exam ordering updates (ORM) and exam result messaged (ORU) including report texts. Collectively, this all means the contents of the databases of Karisma and iSite are automatically synchronised while the systems are capable of functioning independently from each other. For the user, Karisma and iSite will appear as one harmonised and integrated application with bidirectional integration.
Kevin, along with key members of the Philips team is demonstrating the benefit of this systematic integration at RSNA 2011 and looking to catch up with industry peers and clients old and new. If you're in Chicago for RSNA this year, stop by and visit the stand and talk to Kevin about Karisma and iSite.
On his return, we will be talking to Kevin about his experience
at the Chicago forum and you’ll be able to view the interview online. Stay tuned for the full story.
