Centricity PACS in the Medical City Healthcare

Centricity PACS offers a proven, scalable imaging IT platform designed to optimize radiologist productivity, enhance physician satisfaction, and interoperate with existing departmental (RIS, dictation) and enterprise (electronic medical records [EMR], VNA) systems. This PACS solution uses a single DB Rad/Card, RIS/PACS, native mammography workflow, advanced visualization, web-based clients, EMR integration, DR/BC and high availability, and most recently, mobile access on an Apple or Android enabled device.

The new Universal Viewer brings together intelligent tools, enhanced usability and access, advanced visualization and breast imaging to help optimize productivity. Unlike disparate PACS and 3-D systems, Universal Viewer helps to increase efficiency by simplifying information access with a single image repository across 2-D and 3-D studies, enabling holistic oncology and other specialty work flows, with easy access to prior exams.
