As the healthcare sector continues to face constant challenges and pressures from staffing shortages to ever-growing waiting lists, many departments rely more on their IT infrastructure for a smooth workflow.

Integrating IT systems can help wards, hospitals and trusts keep data safe and protected, allow collaborative team efforts and use automated reporting to allow staff to focus on care rather than administration. 

Tricefy, a medical imaging solution, helps to combat pressures, allowing physicians to easily share clinical data across departments, improving collaborative efforts whilst saving time and money.

Find out how Tricefy can maximise efficiency in your clinic.

1. Seamless integration into existing departments

Tricefy’s imaging software seamlessly integrates with various medical imaging modalities and practice management systems, providing clinics with a single platform to access and share patient images and reports. 

This eliminates the need for time-consuming manual transfers resulting in increases in workflow efficiencies

For example, Tricefy can integrate with ultrasound machines and other imaging devices to enable images to be sent directly to the cloud-based storage platform. 

The images can then be reviewed using a standard web browser.

This means that healthcare professionals can quickly and easily access patient images, enabling them to provide more timely and effective care to patients.

2. Cloud-based storage

The cloud-based storage of medical images and reports means that clinics can access patient information securely anywhere with an internet connection. 

Using this technology completely eliminates the need for physical storage of information and means that information can be accessed with mobility and flexibility.

With Tricefy’s cloud-based storage, medical images and reports are stored in a secure environment that meets today’s digital security standards. 

The platform employs various security measures to protect patient data, such as encryption (both at rest and in transit), firewalls, and role-based access controls. 

This ensures that patient information is kept confidential and secure, while still being accessible to authorised healthcare providers.

3. Communication between departments

Using various advanced modern collaboration tools, Tricefy enables real-time communication between different departments. 

Sharing images instantly means that a range of experts can discuss and comment on specific scenarios, speeding up decision-making and improving patient outcomes. 

Medical imaging and reports can be shared automatically with other systems in the organisation such as PACS or EPR. This enables wider viewing of cases around the organisation. Access to studies can also be shared with specific doctors, physicians or other professionals via a secure URL.

The collaborative tools mean that information can be shared between departments quickly and easily, reducing the need for physical consultations or time-consuming meetings.

It also means that there is a wider range of individuals within departments that can discuss cases, which may have previously taken a long time to get an opinion from.

4. Automation

Many departments and organisations are still using outdated – and potentially unsecured – methods for collaboration such as manually uploading files and images.

The Tricefy platform enables medical images and reports to be automatically transferred to a clinic’s practice management system. In larger organisations, Tricefy can share data with other systems such as PACS and EPR using industry-standard methods of communication such as HL7, FHIR and DICOM.

This eliminates the need for manual data entry, which can be time-consuming and error-prone. 

By automating this process, Tricefy can save clinics valuable time and resources, while also reducing the risk of data entry errors.

By automating time-consuming and repetitive tasks, Tricefy frees up healthcare providers to focus on patient care, leading to better outcomes for patients.
