Significant investment in cutting edge information technology has enabled us to provide a sophisticated on-line system giving direct access and storage of patient reports and images. All Referring Practitioners can have access to the system and enjoy the benefits.
The latest system we have in place is referred to as RISPACS. This includes a radiology information system (RIS) and a picture archiving communication system (PACS). It gives Canberra Imaging Group an efficient, reliable and convenient way of delivering reports and images straight into your practice management software. Alternatively, you can access your patient reports and images over the internet, and from your tablet or smart phone.
The medical images are stored in an independent format. The combined RISPACs environment makes possible streamlined booking services, full digital capture and storage of all images and faster report turnaround times.
Break Glass Image Access
CIG now enables referring practitioners to view any study performed by CIG even when they are not the original referrer.
Break Glass is also available for our CIG Online users, the option highlighted by the red button on the search page.
To register for the on-line system please contact Dale, our Referrer Liaison Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org
Benefits to Referring Practitioners
The greatest benefit is the enhanced reporting and results delivery service to the referrer. A major part of this is the greater breadth of options. These allow you to view key images embedded in reports and gives access your patient’s full imaging study online.
The availability of RISPACS will give the following range of access and advantages – the ability to:
- Print the report for the patient with or without the images
- Forward your patient’s reports and images on to another medical practitioner for a second opinion
- Review historical reports with images for three years
- Request CD or films if you require it
- There will be no film storage or lost records – because all patient information is stored within a world class data centre.
- You can discuss a significant finding with one of our radiologists whilst having the images and reports available in a matter of minutes on your desktop.
Benefits to your patients
Access to electronic results means there is no requirement for waiting or returning to collect reports and/or images. There are no film storage issues or lost records, and their referrer has immediate access to better manage the process.
Ways of accessing the system
You can access the image viewers online via the referrers menu.
Referrers can also access the results using a mobile device, for example an iPhone or iPad via our mobile device App. Simply search Canberra Imaging in the App store and download the ‘CIG Mobile’ App.
