Comprehensive Image Distribution

All multimedia data at all workplaces of the institution

Data distribution is web-based using Internet technologies. All data can be displayed in the internet browser, no matter whether these are traditional data from radiology such as x-ray acquisitions, CT, MRI or ultrasound. Data from other units such as cardiology,  OP, dermatology, ophthalmology, radiation therapy or pathology are also made available at any workplace within the institution.
No application software needs to be installed on the client systems. Integration into leading information systems such as HIS or RIS enables an integrated display of all data of a case and does not require further authentications due to the single sign-on principle.

Features

  • Web-based
  • No dependence on specific browsers or versions
  • Data upload is possible (e.g. photos, PDFs)
  • Can add to any foreign PACS

Benefits

  • Minimal IT support due to web technology
  • Can be called from other systems (e.g. HIS, RIS, case record)
  • Reduced workload for physicians and other professionals
  • Low costs

Suitable products

CHILI Web is a software solution for image distribution and teleradiology based on the well-tried CHILI PACS architecture which is capable of being extended. The system is IHE-compliant and can smoothly be integrated into the clinical workflow. The CHILI web server receives images from the imaging modalities or from a PACS via DICOM and saves them in a relational database system. The web server may be used as an interface to the existing PACS and can make PACS images available to web users.

Features

  • No software installation on the Clients, since web-based
  • No dependence on specific browsers or versions
  • Can be called from other systems (HIS, RIS, office computer, electronic medical record, ...)
  • Users have the same setting at all workplaces
  • Can be combined with PACS systems from other manufacturers

Benefits

  • Saves resources, since no configuration needs to be made for user accounts and no deployment required 
  • Increase of process quality: All images are available at all workplaces at any time
  • Cost saving, as the viewer can also be used for reading and reporting
  • Multiple uses, as encryption and compression enable its use for teleradiology

This viewer is part of the CHILI web server and runs on the internet browser.  In connection with a validated monitor, the software can also be used for interpretation.

Features

  • Visualization and interpretation (with validated monitor)
  • Can be integrated into other information systems
  • Image compression (precompressed or dynamically during data transmission)
  • Encrypted data transmission between server and client
  • Operating system-independent and browser-independent

Benefits

  • Alleviation of workload for IT, since no installation is required on clients
  • Internal and external availability of all images
  • Ideal for teleradiology according to German x-ray ordinance
  • Availability of images and reports for referring physicians

International standard interfaces optimize integration with other information systems such as e.g. HIS, RIS or office computer systems. The most important standards are DICOM, HL7 and the rules of the "Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise" IHE initiative.

Please find below our certificates on standard conformance of our interfaces

Features

  • Transmission of requests from RIS/HIS
  • Transmission of images from modalities
  • Transmission and storage of reports
  • Teleradiology

Benefits

  • Open for the combination of the best applications for the task to be completed (Best of Breed)
  • Fast and uncomplicated integration and cost saving due to standard interfaces
  • Workload reduction and higher process quality due to optimal workflow
  • Avoidance of redundancy

The CHILI solutions are based on modules for communication, storage and visualization of multimedial medical data. They are in compliance with international standards and were developed under a quality management system according to ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 and are FDA 510(k) approved. The modules can easily be integrated in applications from other manufacturers.

Features

  • Quality-tested according to international standards
  • Modular
  • Based on international standards (DICOM, HL7, IHE)
  • Platform-independent

Benefits

  • Save costs by using modules that have been proven in use for many years
  • Establish interoperability of own products
  • Reduce time-to-market of new products
