Patient Study Pre-Fetch

Pre-Fetch is one of the most unique and useful features of the SilverBack Workflow Engine. This function reads from the hospital DICOM worklist server to identify patients who are scheduled for a new image study. The Workflow Engine then locates, retrieves and prepares all older patient studies, so when clinicians request patient data, the images and information are immediately accessible.

What are the Benefits?

  • Improves workflow and productivity by giving clinicians easy access to images prior to the study
  • Enhances imaging accuracy and diagnostic capabilities because clinicians and technologists can easily and quickly access old image studies prior to or following a new study
  • Improves clinician-patient communications by providing the ability to retrieve old image studies for comparison
  • Adds functionality to the hospital image and information management system
