Diagnostica Nobiliore, Italy

Diagnostica Nobiliore is a diagnostic imaging center located in the city of Rome, Italy. It was founded in 1983 and has offered state-of-the-art outpatient imaging services, as well as medical examinations and checkups, ever since.

In 2011, Diagnostica Nobiliore began looking for a new PACS solution that would perfectly integrate with their existing HIS (SAP Business One) and their image analysis software Merge eFilm. Their old PACS – besides of being technologically outdated - was only partially integrated with SAP and was further lacking a web browser. Needless to say, it was time to implement a more modern and fast PACS that included a web viewer for greater flexibility.

IMAGE’s local sales partner, SAINTEC – specialists in the field of healthcare related SAP projects – accepted the challenge of integrating the center’s SAP Business One ERP solution with the state-of-the-art PACS iQ-WEBX.

Now, the Diagnostica Nobiliore imaging center is able to utilize a completely integrated PACS with all patient-related medical images accessible from the HIS. In addition to the iQ-WEBX PACS, iQ-WORKLIST will be implemented soon to create DICOM worklists, thus accelerating the modality workflow even further.

Diagnostica Nobiliore is thrilled to have found a beneficial and reliable PACS for a small investment. The fact that iQ-WEBX uses a MySQL database is an added bonus since it means there are no extra license costs. All in all, they see iQ-WEBX as an affordable and professional PACS that allows small diagnostic centers to provide high-level services.
Pietro Mancini, Radiology Technician at Diagnostica Nobiliore, summed it up as follows: “We have a very positive impact using iQ-products in terms of benefits, positive results, and service quality. Immediately after the installation, all people who work in this center found the solutions to be simple to use, and fast.”

Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Region, Russia

The Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Region (YANAO) is located in the arctic zone of the West Siberian Plains, stretching out over a territory of about 750,000 square kilometers which covers 10.4% of the area of Russia. This area is known for containing the biggest gas reserves on earth and is home to around 546,000 people. The oil and gas industry is the most important economic sector and has led to the rapid growth of cities and communities in this formerly sparse part of Russia. 
To improve the region’s medical infrastructure and healthcare services for the population, the local government’s IT and Communications Department was looking for a solution to create a distributed PACS to archive and share medical studies across YANAO.  Some of the major requirements were to consider the narrow-band communication channels and their encryption as well as to provide access to medical images for every clinician.   
IMAGE Information Systems’ Russian representative, Delante Medical Systems, which specializes in PACS and professional services to automate medical institutions, has won the public tender by offering a PACS solution tailored to the region’s needs.

The project included the integration of 16 hospitals and a total of 100 DICOM modalities into one regional PACS network. The channel bandwidths encountered ranged from 30 to 512 kb/s, or were non-existent at all in some remote clinics where internet connections can only be established via satellite links. This was especially challenging since the goal of the project was to ensure a data transfer every night from each site to the Central Archive located in YANAO’s capital city - the Arctic Circle town of Salekhard. 

Delante installed two iQ-WEBX PACS at the Data Center and another 9 iQ-WEBX servers at the larger sites with lots of modalities. All of the 16 hospitals involved use IMAGE’s unique product iQ-ROUTER to achieve fast and secure data transmissions using very low bandwidth internet lines. As abnormal encoding of DICOM studies is a common issue due to missing support of cyrillic letters, an iQ-ROUTER PREMIUM was implemented at the Data Center to ensure data consistency in the central archive.

The installation will be complete by the end of April 2013, only 7 months after the project was assigned. Users are happy about the products and support received from IMAGE Information Systems thus far, since it gave them the opportunity to have a flexible, resource-saving solution. From now on, the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Region will be able to provide better service for referring physicians, thus reducing the wait time for patients.
