Designed to improve physician productivity, reduce Enterprise expansion costs and improve patient care and safety, the MEDxConnect System supports best of breed subspecialty solutions and worklist customization. Using a vendor-neutral, highly scalable architecture, healthcare providers in virtually any department or subspecialty can access all of the patient information they need to make accurate diagnoses, including medical records, images, lab results, medications and more - from anywhere in the Enterprise - using a single worklist. The worklist shows and sorts orders according to priority, modality and other search criteria, enabling users to customize workflow and improve efficiency. It includes all relevant patient and order information, such as electronic notes and scanned documents, as well as prior studies and reports for comparison. The solution also enables workload balancing, allocating studies among available physicians according to user-defined rules, such as body part, modality, exam status or time.
