NEW YORK, November 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Global clinical media platform and video informatics company Orpheus Medical announced today the expanded use of its Orpheus Clinical Media Platform at the OSF Saint Francis Medical Center (part of OSF HealthCare). The partnership; which began in 2014 between Orpheus Medical and OSF Healthcare, involved 2 pulmonary labs and helped streamline OSF's workflow in a major way. From a manual and time consuming, print-scan-upload based workflow to a fully digital, high-quality imaging and automated workflow that seamlessly integrates with McKesson's Radiology™ and Epic's electronic health record (EHR) platform. Immediate benefits to this expansion include a reduced documentation turnaround time from 2 days to mere seconds, and an increase adherence to the improved workflow. "The Orpheus system deployed seamlessly and was quickly adopted by the clinical staff. The applications are user friendly and easy to support. The clinical benefits were evident from day one with high quality images now available in PACS and within our EMR (Electronic Medical Record) system", says Steve Kastelein, Manager of Enterprise Imaging at OSF. "Video is used regularly for patient engagement, consultation, and training and performance improvement. Within a few hours all six rooms were connected, tested and ready for 'go live' the following morning-real plug-and-play. By lunchtime the following day, clinicians were using modality worklist, recording video and taking snapshots and using Orpheus Web to access video and images anywhere in the hospital", says Adam McKeever, working in Steve's team and supporting the clinicians and the solution. Orpheus Medical will showcase their Clinical Media Platform at the RSNA 2016 Annual Meeting (#RSNA16), November 27 - December 2, in Chicago, Illinois. The Platform will be on display in booth #7313 (North Hall B) and in booth #3336 (South Hall A). "Orpheus Medical's long-term commitment to improve patient care through collaboration and care coordination is at the heart of our solution. OSF HealthCare represents a large organization that sees the value of high-quality streamlined image and video documentation as a means to automate workflow, improve performance and patient outcomes," says Gaddi Menahem, CEO of Orpheus Medical.
