Delivering the right study, to the right location, at the right time requires advanced intelligence from a workflow engine.

For efficient and fast diagnosis in care delivery, clinicians need real-time access to all relevant patient studies. With storage, time, and bandwidth restrictions, simply dumping all available patient information is not feasible nor desired.

Leveraging advanced logic and customer-defined relevance criteria, Intelligent prefetch identifies and filters information throughout an enterprise of disparate and siloed studies to deliver the exact information needed for the requesting clinician.

DataFirst is hosting an educational webinar to provide a detailed overview of how intelligent pre-fetch empowers organizations to deliver DICOM studies in their current or future workflows. In this webinar you will gain an understanding of the following topics:

Key Topics

  • Trigger, collect, and queue disparately stored studies, powering efficiency and productivity.
  • Enable clinical comparison of multi-modality and multi-source studies.
  • Clear data flow congestion challenges with high-speed, load-balanced caching.
  • Workflow Case Studies: Ensuring Clinical decision support, Creating a relevant care picture, and Breaking down compatibility barriers.
