Multiple imaging repositories and unmanaged study distribution can negatively impact radiologist workflow and productivity. ImageNext addresses these issues by providing an integrated, universal patient worklist that connects with virtually any PACS or VNA.

With ImageNext, you can intelligently route, sort and distribute imaging studies based on custom preferences to increase productivity 10 to 20 percent while improving quality and reducing turnaround times.

Enhanced workflow orchestration

ImageNext’s Workflow Optimizer engine matches the right study to the right physician to improve accuracy and throughput. The engine receives study information from the PACS or VNA and intelligently populates, organizes and manages studies for automatic distribution based physician profile criteria such as location, schedule, subspecialty and more.

Equitable distribution and load balancing

ImageNext’s proprietary load balancing algorithm assigns a weight to each imaging study based on its complexity and automatically assigns this work equally among physicians. This managed distribution prevents physicians from hand-selecting the most desirable studies and ensures optimal productivity across the board.

Interrupted workflow management 

ImageNext recognizes interruption events (e.g. when an exam has been launched but not signed) and sends these exams to a personal interruption list where the study can be restored and interpretation resumed from where the radiologist left off.

Color-coded SLA tracking 

ImageNext comes equipped with color-coded timing functionality that helps you achieve target turnaround times. Colored badges provide an on-the-fly representation of remaining time before a service-level agreement (SLA) deadline is reached. These indicators help ensure proper study prioritization and completion.

Other features:

  • Auto-launch feature that enables exams to automatically populate and launch without having to return to the worklist
  • Integrates with peer review solutions and HIPAA-compliant chat
