Apollo Introduces arcc™

Apollo today announced it is [re]defining the capabilities of the VNA (vendor neutral archive) with its enhanced Enterprise Imaging solution, arcc™.  As the autonomous repository for clinical content, arcc provides a holistic longitudinal view of all patient data throughout the entire care continuum. “We have rebranded our existing enterprise imaging solution and expanded its capabilities.  arcc  is a more descriptive brand which encompasses and conveys a full understanding of the comprehensive functionality our solution provides to each of our users,” stated Mark Newburger, President & CEO of Apollo.

“By creating a product that focuses on the customer as opposed to industry needs, Apollo is redefining the capabilities of the VNA. Our solution supports and manages Radiology and Cardiology images as well as anyone, but arcc was originally built as a platform to support all non-DICOM specialties.”

Apollo is [re]defining the capabilities of the VNA – learn how in Apollo’s booth at RSNA

“The VNA has evolved to an active platform versus a passive archive. Built on industry interoperability standards and open APIs, the VNA offers comprehensive patient information access, sharing and viewing, along with sophisticated workflow orchestration and analytics capabilities,” concluded a recent Gartner report entitled, “Healthcare Provider CIOs Need to Leverage the Vendor-Neutral Archive for All Unstructured Clinical Content.”  This describes Apollo’s VNA.

At it’s core, Apollo’s enterprise imaging solution is a VNA.

Apollo’s VNA aligns all clinical departments with the enterprise imaging strategy of your healthcare organization, supporting a real-time health system. It enables every department throughout the entire enterprise to capture, manage, and securely access all clinical content.

See how we are [re]defining the capabilities of the VNA at RSNA in two weeks! Visit us in Booth 1561 in the South Hall.

Going to be at RSNA? Set up a 15-minute meeting in our booth to see how Apollo can work for you. We look forward to seeing you there!

At Apollo We Focus on You, Our Customer, First and Foremost

At Apollo, we focus on you, our customer, first & foremost. With this in mind, we created an enterprise imaging solution that focuses on the customer not the industry.

We built this solution to meet our customers’ unique needs, cultures, and workflows. At its core, it is a VNA. Our VNA provides a flexible interface that allows us to add and adjust features on the fly, meeting these individual customer needs. Because of this customer-first focus, we can develop, test, and deploy feature requests and requirements in less time than a traditional software development life cycle plan.

Changes are coming to Apollo’s Enterprise Imaging Solution Set. By focusing on development for you the customer, not the industry, we have advanced our VNA Core to provide flexible interfaces, state of the art security that goes beyond HIPAA compliance to comply with Chain of Custody requirements, and supports a real-time, self-sustaining, health system.

We’ll tell you more in the coming weeks! See what we are all about, and how we put you first, at RSNA at the end of this month in Chicago. Visit us in Booth 1561 in the South Hall.

Going to be at RSNA? Set up a 15-minute meeting  in our booth to see how Apollo solutions can work for you. We look forward to seeing you there.

Apollo is a Proud Partner in National Health IT Week

Apollo is a Proud Partner in National Health IT Week
This October, Apollo — as a partner in the advancement of health information technology to help improve healthcare —is a Proud Partner in National Health IT Week.  National Health IT Week is an awareness week offering all healthcare stakeholders an opportunity to unite under one banner, expressing the benefits that health information technology (IT) brings to U.S. healthcare. “The Value of Health IT.”

Working together with our growing coalition of stakeholders, Apollo is helping to transform healthcare for all and continue our mission to provide Better Care Through Pictures.

Comprehensive health care reform is not possible without system-wide adoption of health information technology, which improves the quality of healthcare delivery, increases patient safety, decreases medical errors, and strengthens the interaction between patients and healthcare providers.

Initiated in 2006 by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), National Health IT Week has emerged as a landmark occasion for using health IT as part of the overall solution to improve America’s healthcare as a bipartisan, federally led, market driven initiative.

The Week consists of events across the country, including National Health IT Week participants —vendors, provider organizations, payers, pharmaceutical/biotech companies, government agencies, industry/professional associations, research foundations, and consumer protection groups— all working together to elevate national attention to the advantages of advancing health IT.

We’ll be exhibiting at RSNA 2017 and we want to see you there!

Be sure to visit us at RSNA, November 26 – 29, 2017, in Chicago at McCormick Place, where we’ll have our enterprise imaging experts on hand to answer questions, provide in-person demonstrations and discuss new opportunities.
