Falls Church, VA – March 19, 2012 – Apollo, the leading provider of collaborative clinical multimedia management solutions for the healthcare industry, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with ViewsIQ to interface Panoptiq™, an innovative slide imaging technology, with Apollo’s Enterprise Patient Media Manager (Apollo EPMM®).
Apollo EPMM brings together all clinical media related to an individual patient from throughout the medical enterprise and makes it immediately and easily available to authorized personnel. This gives healthcare professionals the ability to securely collaborate while using their own best practices. The result is a more integrated clinical team, a dramatic increase in workflow efficiency and effectiveness, and improved patient outcomes at a lower cost.
For laboratory applications, Apollo’s solution automatically collects media such as digital slides, gross images, cytology and other imaging modalities from the original source. Cross-referenced with pictures, videos and other media from multiple specialties throughout the enterprise, pathologists and clinicians get a complete picture of the patient on demand, in a secure, compliant form that enables real-time consults.
ViewsIQ Panoptiq enables pathologists to create panoramic images of their slides in real-time at extremely high resolution with their own microscopes. Trialed by top pathologists at premier healthcare institutions in Canada, Panoptiq integrates seamlessly with the workflow of the pathologist. With Panoptiq, pathologists can see and communicate the microscopic view of the slide more effectively and conveniently.
