June 29, 2021 - ScImage Inc.has partnered with National Cardiovascular Management (NCM), a national consulting and management company that partners with entrepreneurial physicians to design and develop state-of-the-art outpatient cath lab facilities.
NCM’s first project with ScImage went live in March at Peak Surgery Center of Avondale, Arizona, and was developed in cooperation with the providers from multispecialty cardiovascular group Peak Heart & Vascular, which has locations in Avondale, Surprise, Ariz., and Flagstaff, Ariz. ScImage’s PICOM365 Cloud provides image review, storage and advanced structured reporting to manage the complex, measurement-centric cardiac catheterization procedures performed in the facilities.
“ScImage’s Cloud-based offering was an ideal fit for our ASC, as we can access the robust features, functions, and workflow integration we need to connect the disparate devices used in a cath lab at an affordable price and without having to make huge upfront investments in IT infrastructure or software licenses,” said Will Bozlee, BSN, RN, clinical director, Peak Surgery Center. “PICOM365 easily integrates with our EHR to provide modality worklist and finalized structured reports with image links.”
ScImage, in partnership with Fysicon (a Canon company), also outfitted Peak Surgery’s cath labs with QMAPP Hemodynamic Monitoring Solution. “Fysicon’s modernized, small form factor amplifier greatly enhances the ergonomics and provides an intuitive, highly customizable user interface. PICOM365’s seamless integration with QMAPP allowed all of this to be implemented easily and made the report creation process, which the doctors can do from anywhere (i.e., the hospital, their offices or at home), a breeze,” Bozlee concluded.
“As CMS expands reimbursement, shifting cardiology procedures to an ASC has many benefits,” said Sai Raya, Ph.D., ScImage’s Founder and CEO. “In addition to substantial cost savings for patients and payors, it offers a more convenient and accommodating setting for both physicians and their patients. Combined with a ‘one stop shop’ Cloud-centric imaging and reporting workflow that reduces both operational and IT expenses, the future for ASCs looks bright.”
