Mach7 Technologies, a company specializing in innovative medical imaging and data management solutions for healthcare providers, announces it will be providing DocPanel with the innovative Mach7 eUnity Enterprise Diagnostic Viewer for cloud-based Mammography reading service.
DocPanel is the world’s largest radiology marketplace that provides access to over 600 fellowship-trained subspecialty radiologists across the US for radiological reads, second opinions, educational consults, and workflow optimization support. Their new and unique model is designed to solve Radiology resource shortages and coverage gaps throughout the U.S. healthcare system.
“Every patient, regardless of their location, should have access to subspecialty providers for primary diagnosis,” said Nirish Mathias, CEO of DocPanel. “Radiologist shortages across the country are driving delays in cases being read, which can impact the timely delivery of care and frustrate patients. Mach7 has helped us tackle this problem by sharing and aggregating the under-utilized capacity of subspecialty Radiologists to offer primary reading services under a unique marketplace model.”
For the past four years, DocPanel has utilized eUnity to provide an advanced viewing platform that is fast, reliable, and intuitive, designed with the flexibility and independence to expand across facilities, geographies, and provider groups. Through close collaboration and partnership with Mach7, DocPanel has been able to customize eUnity to work effectively with their proprietary reading worklist, giving them a platform that allows radiologists to efficiently read studies from the Cloud in any location.
This foundational work is what enables DocPanel to use eUnity as their mammography viewer for cloud-based interpretation and diagnosis of Mammography cases, including Digital Breast Tomosynthesis studies, eliminating the need to use third-party mammography-specific workstations. With the addition of Mammography, approximately 85% of DocPanel’s images are read exclusively through eUnity, including CTs, MRs, US, X-Rays, DEXA and Mammography images, with additional growth expected. Additionally, DocPanel is currently in advanced discussions to adopt the Mach7 Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) to increase capacity and improve the efficiency of loading additional case studies for primary subspecialty reads.
Mike Lampron, CEO of Mach7, said, “We are thrilled to come together with DocPanel to broaden the outreach and delivery of the Mach7 eUnity Enterprise Diagnostic Viewing platform to DocPanel’s remarkable network of quality physicians. I am confident the Mach7 solution will prove invaluable to providing timely reading of Mammography studies to support this important woman’s health subspecialty, and look forward to collaborating with DocPanel further to help them expand their innovative model.”
