Oshkosh, WI (January 18, 2008) – ImproMed, Inc. is pleased to announce a strategic relationship with Sound Technologies, Inc. to provide a seamless integration with Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM).
The DICOM imaging standard was developed to define the rules and guidelines for handling, storing, and transmitting information regarding digital imaging. This eliminates the need for Infinity users to duplicate client entry into multiple systems and reduces the need to look up patients’ medical record information from multiple sources.
Additionally, teaming with Sound allows Infinity the ability to generate Modality Worklist entries from a patient’s medical record that can populate image requests directly to the digital imaging equipment and apply the appropriate charges to the client’s invoice. Upon completion of the image capture, the final digital images can be accessed directly from the patient’s medical record.
