Hosting and Distribution Collaboration Established to Provide Radiation Dose Monitoring

By Medimaging International staff writers
Posted on 08 Jul 2014
PHS Technologies Group, LLC (Scottsdale, AZ, USA), a unit of PACSHealth, LLC, and a developer of software that monitors patient exposure to ionizing radiation, reported that Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences (Round Rock, TX, USA) will become a marketing, distribution, and hosting partner for its DoseMonitor OnLine software.

Under the agreement, Dell will provide DoseMonitor OnLine as a centrally hosted service for current and future customers using the Dell cloud clinical archive service (DCCA) for enterprise data management. DCCA currently, as one of the largest medical image archives worldwide, hosts more than 7.5 billion images from 1,050 clinical sites.

Mike Battin, chief operating officer of PACSHealth, said, “Reducing radiation dose is a priority in the medical community, and DoseMonitor OnLine offers an effective tool to monitor cumulative risk and meet increasingly stringent regulatory requirements. We are pleased that Dell will join us in our efforts.”

DoseMonitor OnLine is a fully managed software-as-a-service (SaS) that automates American College of Radiology reporting guidelines, eliminating time-consuming manual steps and reducing human input errors. DoseMonitor OnLine provides an enterprise view of all imaging protocols with full support and integration of the platform into the enterprise operation.

The SaS software’s capabilities include: (1) enterprise level multimodality support for computed tomography (CT), mammography (MG), direct radiography (DR), computed radiography (CR) and angiography (XA) modalities. (2) Sophisticated reporting capabilities, including dose by technologist by procedure, dose by physician by procedure, mammography reporting (organ and mean glandular dose) and age range support with real-time alerts and notifications of variance in protocol or expected dose. (3) Intelligent patient search, including search by name, partial name, medical record number, and accession number. (4) Full remote hosting and management by Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences, a proven leader in the medical imaging management space.

“Healthcare providers are looking to gain greater insights into their data to make well-informed decisions about the care they provide to patients,” said Jim Champagne, executive director, Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences. “With DoseMonitor OnLine as part of our Dell cloud clinical archive, customers have new analytic capabilities to support the quest to make healthcare safer and more effective.”

PHS Technologies Group, LLC is a division of PACSHealth, LLC, a medical software development company that develops software systems for medical imaging technology. PHS Technology Group is focused on helping the medical community reduce patient exposure to ionizing radiation through innovative solutions that enable hospitals to manage patient radiation dose and comply with regulatory requirements and industry guidelines, while increasing effectiveness and reducing cost.
