April 1, 2008 - Siemens Healthcare has signed an agreement with the Cleveland Clinic, under which the clinic can deploy the syngo Dynamics cardiology image management and reporting solution across its various locations to enable physicians and staff to read, archive and distribute images and information.
The agreement is designed to help Cleveland Clinic move towards a completely paperless digital cardiology model. Additionally, the reporting capabilities using Digital Structured Reporting on syngo Dynamics could help Cleveland Clinic cardiologists shorten their report turnaround time compared with using transcription services. The agreement also covers data migration of images and digital conversion of report data coming from echocardiography, cath lab and vascular imaging systems, which has been acquired at various Cleveland Clinic sites. The C-PACS will manage data acquired from more than 90,000 echocardiography procedures, 32,000 cath lab procedures and 59,000 vascular studies each year.
The syngo Dynamics deployment will begin in mid-2008. Additionally, under the agreement the parties will collaborate in the development and testing of improvements to and future versions of syngo Dynamics.
