Enterprise-Wide Imaging Performance and Analytics Solutions
Today's hospitals are working hard to ensure that radiation doses during diagnostic procedures are kept as low as possible, while still achieving useful, high-quality imaging. This is both to protect patients from unnecessarily high doses of radiation and to comply with The Joint Commission's diagnostic imaging standards.
The Imalogix™ solution uses advanced analytics to systematically reduce radiation exposure to patients and achieve The Joint Commission compliance in 30 days or fewer. It’s the first radiation-management and analytics solution that is truly cloud-based, freeing hospitals from having to manage or maintain software. While other solutions can take weeks or months to provide meaningful information, Imalogix solutions offer useful data just minutes after installation.
When searching for an image quality and radiation dose-management solution, the quality of your vendor depends on the quality of your request for proposal (RFP). Get help drafting a strong RFP with this Executive Guide.
