With increasing demand for diagnostic imaging, a global shortage of radiologists and tight financial budgets, there is a growing trend towards multisite working in radiology.
It is a shift that calls for calls for holistic and especially sustainable IT solutions that support new workflows, revolutionise the processes and deliver efficiency. That is what medavis can offer.
We are a German-based private company providing specially designed software solutions for radiology that are two things above all: reliable and efficient. The core products are medavis RIS and portal4med.
The medavis RIS optimises the complete radiology workflow - from scheduling to billing. It is a high performance system that aims to improve and automate processes to achieve efficient and profitable use of your resources.
Across system landscapes
Thanks to its sophisticated interface technology it can be used flexibly in every system landscape.
It enables professional diagnostic services, supports cooperation and seamlessly integrates from referral to result.
The portal4med solution is a web-based communication platform that supports an unrestricted flow of information, even across sites: from referrer portal up to telemedicine.
A second opinion or diagnosis by a specialist elsewhere is thus not only possible, but has already become standard in some clinics in Germany - thanks to medavis portal4med.
In the past, software solutions for teleradiology were mostly limited to the transport of image data. The medavis portal4med goes three steps further. Being completely web-based, it eliminates the need for phone and fax.
‘Reports can be written easily online, around the clock and from anywhere in the world’
It is safe and efficient, thanks to DICOM image transport. The software integrates directly into the existing IT infrastructure and ensures data consistency across locations.
The new possibilities of teleradiology fit easily into routine operation and enhance not only diagnostic quality and efficiency, but also have a positive impact on the cost effectiveness in the long term.
Reports can be written easily online, around the clock and from anywhere in the world.
Its interfaces are designed to let any modules to integrate into any IT environment: flexible, scalable, supporting HL7, DICOM and IHE.
It supports teleradiology, teleconsulting or any kind of cross-site or cross-enterprise medical workflows. With portal4med, medical information flows across systems, sites and even borders.
The medavis software is currently in use for 30 million examinations annually by 18,000 users at more than 450 sites in 16 countries.
Our software solutions for radiology provide multisite optimised and reliable workflow management and make more of your resources - today, tomorrow and into the future.
