Los Altos, Calif.-based ScImage, an enterprise imaging and informatics company, announced an agreement with NextGen Healthcare Information Systems Inc. (Horsham, Penn.) to release a jointly developed universal medical image integration module powered by ScImage technology that provides NextGen users simultaneous access to patient-centric and study-centric medical images.

The NextGen Medical Image Integration Module allows images produced by any imaging modality or commercial PACS to be accessed through a common viewer inside NextGen Ambulatory EHR. It provides a user-friendly physician and clinician viewing application to NextGen clients with no downloads required. Clients will also have access to a broad array of content, including medical images, documents and reports generated by multiple disparate PACS systems.

In addition, this module includes built-in modality worklist services, eliminating extraneous costs and complexity for end users. At the core of the new offering is the native ability to capture and transfer discrete procedural data from select modalities directly into NextGen Healthcare’s clinical database. These critical data points can be pre-populated into NextGen Healthcare’s clinical reports or examined for outcomes investigations. The versatile application can also replace or enhance PACS technology currently installed without the need for costly upgrades or data and image migration, while maintaining the current workflow for each clinical area.
