University Physicians Medical Center, Philippines

The University Physicians Medical Center (UPMC) in Manila, Philippines, is a multi-specialty outpatient facility which is catering to the ambulatory private clientele of the Philippine General Hospital (PGH). Situated within the confines of the National University Hospital, the facility is dedicated to the geographic practice of the Faculty of the UP College of Medicine (UPCM), PGH and other allied health units of the University of the Philippines Manila.

The Center comprises 60 medical offices, an ambulatory surgery center as well as fully digitized radiologic and clinical laboratory facilities. With a staff of more than 300 physicians in 15 specialties and 75 sub-specialties and an average of 2,000 patients seen daily, the UPMC is regarded as one of the largest and busiest hospital-based out-patient private facilities in the country.

Filrad Corp., sales partner of IMAGE Information Systems in the Philippines, recently installed three different software applications at the UPMC. Thus, as an addition to their technologically advanced network infrastructure, the Medical Center is now working with iQ-PRINT, iQ-ROBOT and iQ-VIEW.

Mr. Jose V. Tecson, M.D., Medical and Ancillary Director at UPMC, explains what has made his institution opt for the implementation of these products. “Due to the rising cost of films”, he says, “we decided to print images using the iQ-PRINT solution to document the images on ordinary laser paper. It is very economical with savings up to 90% when compared with film. iQ-PRINT’s powerful internal calibration allows us to print images on paper almost similar to the quality of films.”

Regarding iQ-ROBOT, he points out that this solution for automated burning of medical image CDs/DVDs allows them to easily handle the work without too much strain on their personnel. Since the hospital is expected to document images on CD/DVD and there are many studies coming from different modalities such as X-ray, US, CT and MRI, iQ-ROBOT is of great help to the institution. Mr. Tecson further definitely sees the label function as a bonus and an opportunity for them to market their facility.

According to Mr. Tecson, also iQ-VIEW has been positively received. “Our radiologic technologists find iQ-VIEW easy to learn and use”, he says and continues “An added feature of sending studies and reports by email is certainly a nice feature which we will be implementing as needed."

University of Michigan, USA

The University of Michigan was founded in 1817 in Detroit and moved to the city of Ann Arbor in 1837. When the first classes were taught in 1841, U-M had two professors and seven students. Today, the University is one of the greatest public universities in the United States of America with more than 58,000 students, 3 campuses and 19 colleges and schools.

The U-M is nationally known for its award-winning health care system and premier academic medical center UMHS.

The University of Michigan Health System includes numerous Hospitals, Health Centers and Clinics throughout Southeast Michigan, the University of Michigan Medical School and its Faculty Group Practice, the clinical activities of the University of Michigan School of Nursing, and the Michigan Health Corp., the legal entity that allows the Health System to enter into partnerships, affiliations, joint ventures and other business activities.

IMAGE Information Systems Ltd. is proud to support the UMHS in their ambition to be leaders and best in medicine by providing them with the cutting-edge DICOM Viewer iQ-VIEW.

James Good, who is the UMHS' PACS Administrator, explains why and how iQ-VIEW is utilized at his institution. He states "The University of Michigan has taken on the challenge of importing any CD that is brought to the Radiology department from an outside facility, whether for primary dictation or just for clinical viewing, into our PACS system. We feel this gives the clinicians better resources for treating our patients. We use our iQ-VIEWs for importing outside CDs into our PACS system."

He continues, "We used to use another software application for importing CDs, but found out that the burning of CDs slowed down, and the modalities' worklist function did not work very well. Plus we started to receive too many CDs to make this possible."

According to Mr. Good, the University of Michigan Health System imports 200-300 CDs a week into their PACS, reason why they are installing the software on more and more PCs in order to give more people the ability to import studies and send them to the PACS. They tried a couple of different software formats for importing outside CDs, and felt that iQ-VIEW was the best and the most user friendly one.

Mr. Good points out that it has been a big success so far. "Most people I train on how to use the iQ-VIEW for this purpose have very little trouble and find the process very easy", he says.
