The CoActiv EXAM-FILER®
The CoActiv Medical EXAM-FILER is a CD/DVD burning solution for creating self-playing copies of exams that can readily be viewed on any CD or DVD equipped PC. EXAM-FILER easily and quickly accepts studies from any DICOM modality or from any existing PACS and has high speed robotic capabilities to ensure reliable, automated and efficient workflow.
A simple and inexpensive, HIPAA Compliant method to produce reliable, DICOM conforming, easy-to-use CDs and DVDs for Radiological Exam Distribution. These Exam CDs and DVDs are needed for Patients, Referring Physicians and for an inexpensive secondary exam storage medium for any imaging facility. The CoActiv EXAMFILER performs all these functions — and a whole lot more — at a fraction of the cost of other, less functional and more complicated products. The EXAM-FILER performs these functions simply and with virtually no user interaction.
Radiological DICOM Studies are received from an existing PACS or directly from any DICOM-Send capable modality(s) and are automatically burned to individually custom-labeled CD/DVDs for distribution to patients and referring physicians or for inexpensive local storage. Patient CD/DVDs are limited to single or multiple exams or studies for a single patient. Referring Physician and Storage CD/DVDs can contain multiple studies from multiple patients, up to 4.7GB of storage — all automatically… requiring virtually no operator or technologist time. The average cost of our recommended 25-year archival-quality media is less than $.50 for a 700MB CD and about $.75 for a 4.7GB DVD. Compare that to the cost of providing film copies of studies. CoActiv EXAM-FILER exam disks can contain hundreds and even thousands of uncompressed, original, high-resolution DICOM images for instant viewing, comparisons and printing as well as easy and convenient local exam storage.
Each CD/DVD is automatic, self-starting and includes a CoActiv clinical DICOM Viewer with all necessary functionality including windowing, leveling, cine, multi-frame, etc. Every CD/DVD is automatically labeled, (directly onto the CD/DVD disk in high resolution full color graphics; not printed to a stick on label) with the practice logo, name and address; and the pop-up viewer includes an automatic link to the practice website (if desired). The custom full-color Exam CD label also includes creation date, patient name and study information and referring physician name, as well as HIPAA and privacy notices. The CoActiv EXAM-FILER can be customized to interface with virtually any current PACS System or DICOM-Send compliant scanning modality(s), DICOM Gateway, CR or DR system. The EXAM-FILER disk also permits viewing any Attached Files, Reports and all other associated information included with the study, all at a click of the mouse… and another simple click to play any attached Voice Clips on any sound enabled PC. All the software to perform all the listed functions is included on every CD and requires that nothing be installed on the user’s PC…which is not the case with most other products. EXAM-Filer will not affect the Windows Registry or install any software in a user’s computers and does not require the user to have administrative rights on the PC since it runs 100% from the CD or DVD.
The CoActiv EXAM-FILER is usually implemented in less than a day to any DICOM-Send capable Modality or PACS and has proven to require no more than 15 minutes of user training. We include remote online support via included software (you supply the Internet access) and the CoActiv helpdesk provides phone support. The CoActiv EXAM-FILER includes a custom high performance Dell Computer with 5-Year On-Site Dell Support, customized CD/DVD robotic burner/printer, all necessary software and licenses. CDs, DVDs, and replacement printer cartridges are available from several sources or can be provided to you by CoActiv. This system can use standard CDs, DVDs (or our recommended special archival media) and readily available cartridges — no proprietary, expensive supplies to buy with the CoActiv EXAM-FILER. We even include a custom–designed, full olor template to allow your personalized CD/DVD labeling to properly reflect your unique practice image. Several different Robotic Burner/Printers are available to suit your facility’s volume requirements.
