Vital Images, Inc. Tackles Challenges in Today’s Enterprise Imaging Systems and Operations

MINNEAPOLIS, April 8, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vital Images, Inc., (Vital), is pleased to announce the release of VioSuite Image Management and Vitality Solutions Business Intelligence. Joining the company’s flagship products, VitreaAdvanced® and VitreaView®, these new product families give healthcare administrators a robust set of tools to improve system-wide image access and image data analytics. Vital will introduce the VioSuite and Vitality Solutions portfolios at HIMSS15 (Toshiba booth #6439) in Chicago, April 13-15, 2015.

“With the healthcare landscape changing rapidly and an increased pressure to do more with less, our customers require partners who solve image access demands while optimizing investments in capital equipment,” said Jim Litterer, General Manager of Vital. “By expanding our portfolio of products, Vital is well-positioned to address the problems associated with enterprise imaging and operational data access.”

As healthcare leaders are driven to provide better coordinated care, they need strategic partners to help them solve image access challenges. VioSuite Image Management is a portfolio of flexible products supporting a variety of image management strategies. VioSuite includes VioArchive™, a VNA (Vendor Neutral Archive) for unified storage and management of all imaging data created across all care operations, and VioStream™, which grants federated access to images residing in disparate DICOM archives. Utilizing VioSuite along with VitreaView enables full patient imaging access to clinicians, which improves operational efficiency and quality.

Imaging is a very effective method to diagnose diseases and improve clinical outcomes. In an environment demanding cost reductions and increased quality, while reducing government and payer contributions for imaging services, both issues and opportunities emerge. Vitality Solutions delivers imaging-centric business intelligence products and services, allowing health leaders to continuously improve operational efficiency and quality.

Two Vitality Solutions products being introduced at HIMSS15 are Vitality IQ™ Imaging Operations and Vitrea® Vitality Business Intelligence. Vitality IQ delivers real-time access to critical business intelligence across an imaging department’s existing manufacturers, modalities, information systems and locations. By implementing Vitality IQ, health administrators are able to improve management of quality, productivity and resource utilization. Vitrea® Vitality enables administrators to receive actionable insight into the health, performance, and utilization of Vitrea imaging systems. Coming soon to the Vitality Solutions suite, CT Vitality, delivers a comprehensive protocol management solution that enables protocol approval, distribution, and tracking for Toshiba scanners.

An industry pioneer, Vital has a long history of developing clinically meaningful multi-modality advanced visualization technology giving medical specialists fast access to imaging information from anywhere. Vital continues to invest in advanced visualization and enterprise viewer technology to provide the most comprehensive clinical applications covering the entire spectrum of disease states, from visualizing anatomy to treatment planning.
