Apollo arcc™ as a Universal Viewer
Global Access via a Single Platform
Apollo arcc provides universal viewing with global access via a single viewing platform for the entire enterprise. arcc captures, shares, manages and provides safe & secure access to DICOM or non-DICOM clinical multimedia from over 40 specialties across the healthcare enterprise at your desk or on the go via mobile access. arcc can improve clinical collaboration and organizational productivity by facilitating caregiver access to clinical imaging and multimedia via the EMR, or directly via the Apollo platform.
Mobile and Zero-Footprint Platforms
‘On-demand’ means Apollo provides support for all clinician viewing devices, including iPhone, Android, iPad, and web-based viewing. Apollo’s FDA Class II zero-footprint viewer enables access to images from anywhere clinicians need them, from a patient’s bedside to the boardroom.
ChartMaxx ECM Interface
arcc interfaces with ChartMaxx® for comprehensive enterprise content and document management. ChartMaxx provides users 24/7 concurrent access to medical record information, including structured and unstructured data across the healthcare enterprise. Physicians and staff get online, intuitive access to the longitudinal patient record and critical information.
Apollo ‘On-Demand’ Universal Viewer
More than just a DICOM Viewer, Apollo’s universal viewer supports all clinical multimedia and imaging modalities and formats. Apollo displays images in their native formats with modality-specific viewers. For example, Apollo’s customers can display a CT brain scan in 3D on one half their computer screen and a microscopic pathology image from a whole slide digital scanner on the other. Each with the viewing, annotation, and workflow tools specific to that specialty and modality.
Integrated real-time video streaming and video viewing
Clinicians utilize video cameras to document patient care and support diagnosis. For example: Gastroenterologists capture video from colonoscopies; orthopedic techs capture video for gait analysis; and, pediatricians capture video for forensic documentation. Apollo’s arcc not only supports viewing multiple video formats but allows for real-time video streaming from many video-enabled medical devices. Pathologists can collaborate in real-time with a Pulmonologist while they are viewing a live bronchoscopy.
Apollo arcc™ - Image Sharing and Workflow
Point of Care Image Capture
Apollo’s arcc enables point of care capture for most clinical images and multimedia with departmental workflows for over 45 specialties. Securely connect with all medical imaging modalities including GI scopes, digital cameras, microscopes or even a mobile phone. Automatic association of the image with the patient from the device enables HIPAA compliance.
Configurable, flexible, secure, and easy to use, arcc’s enterprise worklist organizes images across the enterprise from a single enterprise worklist. Not only can the arcc enterprise worklist be configured to support the unique requirements of each specialty, individual clinicians can configure the worklist to meet their specific preferences. Security profiles and user group membership determine what and how clinicians view cases in the worklist.
Clinicians are able to mark images and other clinical multimedia for viewing within the EMR through the exchange of data via HL7 interfaces. Apollo’s arcc not only integrates with the major EMRs but also to leading lab information systems and other departmental clinical information systems. Apollo supports interfacing to the EMR through various workflows including orders, unsolicited orders, notes, and ‘on-demand’ access.
HIPAA-Compliant Image Sharing
Apollo’s arcc provides role-based access and image-level security with audit tracking that ensures HIPAA compliance. Whether it’s a DICOM study or a clinical photograph, arcc enables all clinicians to securely share any clinical image or multimedia with other authorized users. arcc offers a powerful image sharing module enabling secure consults and viewing of patient multimedia without the worry of unsecure access.
Specialty-Specific Imaging Workflows
Each specialty within a healthcare enterprise has a unique workflow for acquiring, using and viewing patient clinical images. In fact, each medical device modality can have a different workflow. Apollo’s years of experience in working with specialties across the enterprise has enabled Apollo to build the capability to support workflows in over 45 different specialties.
With Apollo Mobile™, everyone on the healthcare team can securely capture pictures, video, or audio via their mobile devices and immediately upload and use them in their practice.
More than a standard VNA, Apollo provides a clinical image repository that supports access to existing DICOM PACS archives and other file based image stores, no matter the vendor or format.
Secure HIPAA-Compliant Storage
The Apollo VNA enables organizations to create secure, HIPAA-compliant archives that can also hold sensitive images used for abuse, assault, VIP patient, and other sensitive cases. arcc uses role-based access and image-level security for the stored images.
Research and Education Archives
The arcc VNA enables re-tasking of images for organizations that support an education and/or research mission. Apollo can provide a separate and secure image archive for education. Anonymized images from your institution can be categorized by disease, diagnosis, or other classification. Residents, students and others can search and query for different cases. Cases can include descriptions and case details. Images can include annotations layered with explanations of each annotation.
Native and DICOM Storage Formats
The rapid advance of medical imaging devices that produce proprietary file formats and the proliferation of digital cameras and smartphones in clinical practice have made storing everything in a DICOM archive outdated. The arcc VNA stores all images in their native and clinically significant formats. This includes DICOM and non-DICOM or proprietary image files.
Apollo’s dynamic migration ability allows images to be moved from existing PACS archives and image repositories to the arcc VNA when they are accessed from the EMR or PACS. This avoids costly and time consuming migration to a VNA prior to being able to access images.
