Clinical pictures and images of children place a unique burden on clinicians and information management & technology professionals. Beyond standard x-rays, children’s healthcare organizations must manage images obtained for cases of suspected child abuse, neglect and assault (SCAN). Beyond the walls of your hospital(s) and clinics, these pictures are used to collaborate between the outside social service agencies and law enforcement. Apollo has specifically addressed these unique imaging challenges using its enterprise clinical multimedia management solution, Apollo arcc™.
Apollo arcc™ enables secure and timely transmission of images with community agencies and law enforcement to your SCAN clinicians. In handling these types of cases, health systems need a secure method that enables police, physicians, and social workers to share and upload photos and other clinical multimedia in cases of suspected abuse.
Apollo arcc™ secures SCAN-related multimedia in the patient record and includes all documented images, notes, video, x-rays, drawings, photos, and other clinical multimedia. The multimedia objects are linked directly to the patient record. Apollo arcc™ also provides a comprehensive role-based security schema to ensure patient safety and privacy. This enables physicians to “lock down” a case or even specific image.
Apollo arcc™ enables HIPAA and jurisprudence compliance. Apollo arcc’s™ comprehensive audit trails can assist in documenting the chain of custody for the images when needed and provide them as part of the legal health record.
