Exa Ortho was designed with the purpose of providing fast access to images from anywhere while also providing orthopedic specific tools for image manipulation and viewing.The PACS features orthopedic specific functionality as well as the same robust back-end of the Exa Enterprise Imaging solution. Exa Ortho’s foundation in the Exa platform is critical to support interfaces and workflow changes as orthopedics groups grow and consolidate.
Exa Ortho uses a diagnostic Zero Footprint Viewer which allows for easy access to images from the operating room as well as all exam rooms. There are no downloads, plugin or installations necessary to view and manipulate images from any consumer grade computer using any operating system and any web-browser. The Zero Footprint Viewer also means that software updates are implemented across all users, instantly.
Server Side Rendering means that the work to access images is done at the server and not at each individual workstation. That provides orthopedic practices the flexibility to use existing exam room computers or tablets to show patients their images, regardless of the age of the computer. The Server Side Rendering technology also makes access to priors extremely fast because DICOM data does not need to be transmitted to each workstation.
No prefetching is required and this results in fast access regardless of the internet connection. You can now immediately receive all relevant data that is desired by the physician, rather than pre-fetching all data and slowing connection speeds.
Exa Ortho features a full range of measuring tools including distance, angle measurements, and spine labeling. Pre-operative planning is made simple by enabling selection and storage of key images from multiple exams into an easily accessible patient planning file.
Orthopedic templating is also available within Exa. As with all of the orthopedic specific tools, they are available from any web-enabled device. Exa integrates with any existing EHR allowing users to view images from completed exams from within their EHR. Patient demographics import seamlessly helping to avoid any issues with duplicate data input.
