VitreaView Builds Momentum as Healthcare Communities Embrace Universal Viewers

Image-enabling EHRs, EMRs and HIEs help reduce readmission rates and unnecessary imaging procedures

April 23, 2014 — Vital Images, a Toshiba Medical Systems Group company, is experiencing a significant increased demand for its VitreaView universal viewer as healthcare leaders seek opportunities to meet Stage 2 Meaningful Use requirements, connect physicians and patients to images and integrate imaging into their EMRs (electronic medical records), HIEs (health information exchanges) and EHRs (electronic health records).

"We are seeing a significant increase in healthcare organizations concerned about reducing hospital readmission rates and unnecessary imaging procedures," said Erkan Akyuz, president and CEO at Vital Images. "Vital helps to resolve these challenges with our VitreaView solution, providing a standardized Web-based viewer to the entire care team across multiple specialties and geographies. Organizations also rely on our universal viewer to help achieve Stage 2 Meaningful Use requirements and integrate imaging into their existing technologies, such as EMR, HIE and EHR."

"Our partnership with Vital helped us to achieve Stage 2 Meaningful Use with our imaging technology upgrade, while improving clinician workflow and encouraging EMR adoption," said Ronald J. Fuschillo, Jr., vice president and chief information officer at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center in New Jersey.
