At ACC, Siemens Showcases Streamlined Workflow Features in syngo Dynamics
Siemens Healthcare will showcase a new version of its cardiovascular imaging and information system at the 62nd Annual Scientific Session of the American College of Cardiology from March 9 - 11, in San Francisco. From routine to advanced¹ reading: the new version of syngo Dynamics (VA10A²) helps streamline workflows and optimize clinical utilization. Siemens is committed to delivering solutions to customers that improve the ability to deliver coordinated, sustainable care as part of Agenda 2013, a two-year global initiative of Siemens Healthcare to increase its competitiveness and innovative capacity.
With this new version, multiple users can now simultaneously enter documentation into the same study. As a result, physicians, nurses, and technicians can more efficiently team up to provide patient care, while utilizing additional documentation capabilities - at any stage of the procedure. Once documentation has been completed, enhancements to accessing prior studies and finalizing reports can accelerate report turn-around times. In addition, physicians can more efficiently monitor radiation dose, which greatly strengthens their ability to provide safe care to the patient. Improvements to the Electronic Whiteboard³ can increase flexibility of use, and enhance efficiency with the cardiovascular departments.
syngo Dynamics enhancements of this release are designed to provide healthcare providers with greater functionality and a more streamlined workflow, giving them the ability to focus on providing efficient, effective, and complete care for their patients.
