Cloud-based cardiovascular imaging system designed to expand access to high-quality patient care throughout West Virginia through remote imaging and consultations

WVU Medicine Deploys Enterprise PACS from ScImage

July 24, 2017 — ScImage Inc. recently announced West Virginia University Health System has partnered with ScImage to utilize ScImage’s PICOM365 Enterprise PACS (picture archiving and communication system) throughout the eight WVU Medicine hospitals. The high-security, cloud-based PICOM365 will deliver cardiovascular image management, viewing and reporting capabilities for seamless workflow throughout the health system. 

ScImage’s comprehensive imaging solution provides enterprise connectivity of all cardiology modalities including echocardiology, nuclear cardiology, stress, Holter and electrocardiogram (ECG), full electronic health record (EHR) integration to Epic, as well as LDAP authentication. The end-to-end encrypted solution delivers all the necessary clinical imaging and third-party visualization software applications, reporting and workflow tools to support remote reading and reporting, according to the company. 

“We selected ScImage’s cloud-based enterprise solution to help us deliver on the promise of expanding access to high-quality cardiovascular care throughout West Virginia, regardless of where patients live, without having to travel, with remote imaging and remote consultations,” said Partho Sengupta, M.D., director of cardiovascular imaging and chair of cardiovascular innovation at the West Virginia University Heart and Vascular Institute.

“We completed a thorough selection with the goal to transform WVU Medicine’s imaging environment to meet today’s and tomorrow’s challenges. Our top priorities included performance, advanced reporting capabilities, remote work and full integration with Epic. We identified ScImage as the leading solution to support our non-invasive cardiology needs, and ScImage passed our selection criteria with flying colors. With a project of this scale and magnitude, we have a great opportunity to positively impact patient care in West Virginia,” said Jim Venturella, chief information officer, WVU Medicine.

West Virginia has one of the highest prevalence of cardiovascular disease in the United States. More than 40 percent of adults in the state have hypertension, and only two out of 10 adults have ever been screened for cardiovascular risks. According to Sengupta, West Virginia offers a fertile ground for innovation to implement the vision of automated technologies and novel processes to screen latent cardiovascular disease.

“PICOM365’s agility and scalability allows us to customize our workflow to our specific requirements for reading and interpreting exams, which includes the ability for our physicians to review and report from anywhere. This innovation supports a new age of caring for patients through automation and speed to provide better and more cost-effective care,” added Sengupta.
