On November 14th, Lexmark International announced the availability of new solutions that it says will further enable all patient content to be accessed and managed to improve patient care. The new solutions consist of:

Lexmark Legacy Data Archive (LDA) is a solution that helps healthcare organizations deal with the proliferation of data within legacy systems. LDA is said to provide healthcare organizations a lower-cost alternative to traditional migration services. It combines Lexmark Healthcare’s standards-based XDS repository with Lexmark’s HCM Viewer to deliver “a more efficient archival and retrieval solution for legacy data,” according to Lexmark.

Lexmark Healthcare has expanded its PACSGEAR Image Capture & Connect suite with a new EHR Gateway, a server-side EHR integration solution to support multiple DICOM devices. EHR Gateway is said to simplify the acquisition and management of content from DICOM devices not managed by PACS or Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) products. EHR Gateway is designed for departmental use at hospitals to capture DICOM content directly from DICOM devices and make that information available to EHRs in standard formats such as .mp4, .jpg, and .pdf. It aggregates multiple medical devices and a single interface to the EHR where the image objects can be accessed.

Lexmark Healthcare also provides additional enterprise-viewer features with the launch of version 4.1 of Lexmark’s NilRead Enterprise Viewer. According to Lexmark, NilRead Core and Clinical continue to be the most comprehensive clinical imaging viewer on the market “with more specialties, more devices and more collaboration, including added support for Radiation Oncology and Ophthalmology/Optometry workflow.” Version 4.1 includes enhanced NilRead Interpretation with capabilities for vessel-tracing functionality. According to Lexmark, NilRead Enterprise Viewer’s independence from underlying PACS, VNA or modality enables healthcare organizations “to exert more control over their imaging informatics assets than is possible with legacy PACS solutions, empowering them to control costs while leveraging new diagnostic modalities in the organization.”

“These additions and enhancements to the Lexmark Healthcare portfolio enable health providers to better identify, connect, consolidate and control critical patient-centered content that currently lives outside of core clinical systems such as EHRs and PACS,” commented Reynolds C. Bish, vice president of Lexmark and president of Enterprise Software. “By giving providers greater access, visibility and control over this content via their existing clinical workflows, health professionals are empowered to improve patient diagnosis, care and outcomes.”
