Why so many clinicians are dissatisfied with images attached to the “Media Tab” on their Electronic Health Records and how we can solve that problem.
We’ll be announcing BodyMapSnap 4.0. The biggest change on this version is the support for MP4 video capturing and sharing. MP4 to JPEG DICOM Multi-Frame images will also be available in January 2019 for our enterprise customers. If your PACS viewer support Ultrasound clips. You can view the videos.
Ask Us Our Approach to Encounter Based Imaging Workflow
Many clinical users have been asking us about our approach to Encounter Based Imaging Workflow. We approach this in a very flexible way without breaking your current workflow and without a need to add any extra methods or devices to accomplish both Order Based and Encounter Based. This is used successfully in Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and our base of private practice clinicians. In both cases valuable metadata will be fully available for use either in the PACS, EHR or within our system. There will be an IHE Encounter Based Workflow meeting at RSNA, you may want to attend that meeting especially if your workflow involve point-of-care ultrasound acquisition and photography. (Tuesday 11/27 12 PM-1 PM S105C McCormick South).
“Alexa” of EHR—New NLP AI Partnership with InContext.ai
As a part of our AI Platform Initiative for 2019, we will be showing InContext.ai technology which will be our Reporting AI technology partner to provide Alexa like speech recognition. We will also be using the technology for clinical note taking. CEO of InContext.ai, Dr. Robert Grzeszczuk and myself will be providing a live demo of this technology. If your workflow involves your ER department this will be very powerful addition to your tools. This is a work in progress presentation.
Wound Assessment AI Initiatives Updates
We have been working on AI technology to detect wound conditions from photos. This will become an important technology for our system to have a grasp of the context of the images especially in post-operative follow-ups and long-term and tracking bed-sores of immobile patients. This is a work in progress presentation.
US Patent Grant Approved for Our Size Measurement System
We are happy to announce that the US Patent Office will be able to approve a grant for our size measurement technology. Our simple paper based smart ruler technology can convert any photographic device to a viable size measurement device. This is a great tool especially for clinical users located in remote regions of the world with a limited budget to purchase mobile devices.

Comprehensive enterprise solution integrates clinical team collaboration, visible light imaging and EHR for improved pediatric patient outcomes.
Campbell, CA, November 19, 2018 – Dicom Systems, Inc. (www.dcmsys.com), a leader in Enterprise Imaging IT, and WinguMD, (www.wingumd.com) a clinical collaboration mobile app, have announced a joint deployment for Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami, Florida.
Nicklaus Children's is consistently recognized amongst the best children's hospitals in the nation in U.S. News & World Report's “Best Children's Hospitals” edition and no other hospital in Florida has more ranked specialties as listed in the 2018-19 report. As a CHIME #1 “Most Wired” hospital in 2018, Nicklaus has the largest pediatric teaching program in the southeastern U.S. with a track record of leading healthcare IT. In order to better integrate clinical communications over mobile, Nicklaus Children's sought to implement a secure, centralized platform to capture and share clinical photos inside their EHR. WinguMD provided sharing and indexing of serial clinical photos across care teams as well as comparison with pathology, wound care and other imaging. Unifier by Dicom Systems served as the integration engine for workflow and interoperability.
Elise Hermes, Chief Nursing Information Officer for Nicklaus Children’s Health System said, “Nicklaus Children's is excited about the communication tools and interdisciplinary collaboration provided by WinguMD. Prior to deploying the application, clinical photos were stored in multiple devices using numerous manual processes. Quality, continuity, security, and integration were our key drivers and intended outcomes. WinguMD is a single and seamless solution for clinical photos that answers the needs of our care teams.”
“We are on the cusp of a mHealth revolution. Nicklaus Children’s Hospital is an innovative institution that leverages technology to provide better patient care. We are pleased to be the chosen vendor to meet their mobile clinical photo and collaboration needs,” said Dr. Oliver Aalami, practicing vascular surgeon and Co-Founder of WinguMD.
Benefits of Nicklaus Children’s Enterprise Mobile Clinical Collaboration Platform
Easy to use social-media style platform reports on patient status to all members of the care team
Integrates encounter-based imaging, chat and mobile device clinical photos into EHR and viewer
Features medical-grade photo app with capture, comparison and annotation of medical photos series
DICOMweb integration provided Nicklaus Children’s with their choice of enterprise viewers
Unifier DICOM Modality Worklist (DMWL) by Dicom Systems integrates visible light imaging, DICOM, HL7 and non-DICOM imaging data
Plans for hospital-sanctioned iPads preloaded with enterprise WinguMD and Dicom Systems solution for all new residents to support culture of compliance and more seamless workflow
Recent research shows growing interest in this emerging solutions category. Frost & Sullivan noted the adoption of visible light imaging modalities across several image-using and image-producing specialties was gaining traction across healthcare organizations. Meanwhile, KLAS Research released a 2018 Enterprise Imaging report that listed adopting and standardizing encounter-based imaging and visible light images as having the greatest impact on workflow success.
“This tight integration at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital is a tribute to the fundamental value of interoperability. We seamlessly deployed this solution leveraging Nicklaus Children’s existing IT ecosystem with zero downtime impact on existing infrastructure. The newly enabled workflows do not cause end-users to deviate from existing workflows, which means they are naturally adopting the solution,” said Florent Saint-Clair, Executive Vice President of Dicom Systems. “Providers and residents can now use iOS devices to collaborate in a controlled, secure, hospital-sanctioned environment. Dicom Systems in partnership with WinguMD co-founders, Dr. Aalami and Manabu Tokunaga, are proud to be in the trenches with providers, empowering clinical teams to collaborate on the best care for their pediatric patients.”
Dicom Systems (#7900) and WinguMD (#1158G) will be exhibiting in their respective booths during the 104th Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting from November 25-29, 2018 at McCormick Place in Chicago, CA.
