New exclusive distributor named for DoseMonitorÂ® in the UK and Ireland
Scottsdale, AZ - PACSHealth LLC, a developer of innovative software that aggregates and analyzes ionizing radiation data from medical imaging procedures, announced today that its United Kingdom registered unit, PACSHealth, Ltd, has appointed Healthcare Software Systems, Ltd. of Mansfield, United Kingdom as its exclusive distributor for its DoseMonitorÂ® software in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Previously established non-exclusive OEM arrangements in these territories will remain in place.
"We are delighted to partner with Healthcare Software Systems - part of the Wellbeing Software Group - to provide our DoseMonitor radiation dose aggregation and analysis system to healthcare organizations throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland," said Mike Battin, Chief Operating Officer of PACSHealth, LLC. œWith over 80% market share in the UK Radiology Information System space, the Wellbeing Software Group's distribution network will help to rapidly expand the presence of DoseMonitor in these markets.
Wellbeing Software Group was established in 2012 to bring together three leading Healthcare IT companies: Apollo Medical Systems (Primary Care data extraction and clinical audit), Healthcare Software Systems (Radiology Information Systems) and Euroking (Maternity Information Systems). These companies have developed and maintained innovative clinical information systems, contributing to the management of the healthcare of millions of UK citizens for over 25 years.
œAs the UK's leading RIS provider, Healthcare Software Systems (HSS) is continually investing in research and development to ensure its Radiology Information System “ CRIS “ remains the most functionally rich system available. We embrace the expertise of niche solution providers and recognise the value that can be obtained from supplying a seamlessly integrated, best-of-breed solution. This allows HSS to focus on what it does best, while our customers benefit from a single sourced, multi-faceted and highly functionally rich solution, developed in partnership and cooperation with fellow industry experts. Our considerable research into the emerging requirement for radiation dose monitoring lead us to PACSHealth, with whom we are excited to be launching this partnership, to bring integrated dose monitoring to our extensive UK customer base, said Chris Yeowart, Wellbeing's Director of Strategic Business Development.
"The ability to effectively monitor radiation dose during certain medical imaging procedures has become increasingly important," Battin said. "By helping clinicians monitor a patients' ionizing dose history, healthcare professionals can optimize patient care while helping hospitals comply with the increasing regulatory requirements we're seeing in the industry."
DoseMonitor is a single-server browser-based software application that automates dose data collection and reporting. It fully integrates into existing RIS, EMR and dictation/transcription solutions, helping to eliminate time-consuming manual steps and reducing input errors. It also provides near-time visibility, alerting operators to potential excessive radiation dose before additional exposure occurs. Facilities can accurately depict historical exposure and compare, aggregate and interpret data from ionizing radiation sources for an individual patient, in a clinical study, between diagnostic modalities and facilities.
