Technology & Workflow

Creating seamless radiology workflows is what our IT specialists excel in. We focus on customer specific requirements in a flexible and pragmatic manner.

Our IT solutions are vehicles for delivery of our service, not profit centers. That is why our customers enjoy the latest PACS/RIS and communication technologies at minimum cost. Teleconsult’s  IT support center will tailor integration and connectivity plans with your current systems, ensuring secure transmission of studies and receipt of reports, directly into your PACS/RIS or HIS if desired.

To deliver its services Teleconsult has selected systems from several leading IT partners. That is why we can seamlessly tie into your current IT environment or help you develop and set up a system from scratch.

Our IT & PACS platforms are cost-effective, flexible, standards-compliant, web-based, workflow management solutions designed for centralized and distributed imaging environments. Consolidate all radiology exam information including images and reports from multiple systems into a centrally managed work list, accessible using off-the-shelf browser technology. Teleconsult IT & PACS PACS platforms provide complete PACS functionality, including data acquisition, long-term storage, high availability, disaster recovery and advanced diagnostics viewing.

Teleconsult IT platforms are CE Marked and/or FDA approved and have substantial fault tolerance and disaster recovery solutions built into the systems. Encryption, bi-level login authentication and rules-based user access down to the patient record level ensure compliance with international standards such as HIPAA and the EU Data Protection Directive.
