GCQ celebrates National Health IT Week

National Health IT Week

This September, Global Care Quest — as a partner in the advancement of health information technology to help improve healthcare — is joining approximately 200 public and private sector organizations to participate in the 8th Annual National Health IT Week (September 16-20, 2013). National Health IT Week 2013 is the premier event offering all healthcare stakeholders an opportunity to unite under one banner, expressing the benefits that health information technology (IT) brings to U.S. healthcare. “One Voice, One Vision.”

Initiated in 2006 by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), National Health IT Week has emerged as a landmark occasion for using health IT as part of the overall solution to improve America’s healthcare as a bipartisan, federally led, market driven initiative. Comprehensive health care reform is not possible without system-wide adoption of health information technology, which improves the quality of healthcare delivery, increases patient safety, decreases medical errors and strengthens the interaction between patients and healthcare providers.

The Week consists of events in Washington DC and across the country, including National Health IT Week 2013 participants —vendors, provider organizations, payers, pharmaceutical/biotech companies, government agencies, industry/professional associations, research foundations, and consumer protection groups— all working together to elevate national attention to the advantages of advancing health IT.

Global Care Quest’s participation in National Health IT week highlights our organization’s commitment to ensure health information technology is integrated, interactive, interoperable and intelligent to provide the best patient outcomes.

Streamlining External Image Study Acquisition

70% of newly referred patients have image studies that originate from external sources and often result in delays loading and viewing the files. As such valuable clinical time is wasted and can negatively impact patient satisfaction.

This webinar summarizes the process, followed by a leading university medical center targeting waste and improvement opportunities associated with handling external image studies.

VIEW1™ Spotlights Neurosurgeons & Spine Surgeons

Join us Friday, June 29, 2012 @ 2:15 p.m. PDT, to review and discuss use cases and specific examples of how VIEW1™, powered by Global Care Quest, enhances workflow and patient care within the Neurosurgery & Spine surgery environments.

Global Care Quest’s VIEW1™ suite is designed to solve many of the challenges surgeons face in their daily workflow.  Often these challenges are related to the timely access, organization, and presentation of critical patient information and this session will discuss the importance of accessing such information, regardless of location.

Webinar Focus

From the point patients are referred for surgical intervention, and throughout the ensuing stream of care, a number of handoffs occur between clinicians and staff. Communication and collaboration during such transitions are essential but at times not optimal.

The session will provide recommendations  to eliminate common inefficiencies with minimal disruption to the care team's existing workflows.

VIEW1 Technology featured on "The Doctors"

The Doctors

Global Care Quest’s VIEW1™ technology was seen in millions of homes across the country on October 10, 2011. “The Doctors,” the syndicated talk show that highlights on-set medical procedures and the latest scientific advances aired a segment about a gentleman with an extraordinary case of amnesia. Two VIEW1™ products appeared. The ImageStation™ was showcased as an advanced reference tool now available specifically for surgeons. The Clinical Command & Control™ dashboard was displayed on-set on the show’s “magic screen,” and utilized by the doctors to help explain the clinical side of this compelling human interest story.

GCQ™ introduces the surgeon ready VIEW1™ Image Station™

Global Care Quest, a Division of The KARL STORZ Endoscope Group, today announced the latest addition to the VIEW1™ suite of solutions, the Image Station™.

Until now, imaging solutions have been focused on the needs of radiologists. This translates into a lack of surgeon-focused features and workflow which is frustrating to many of surgeons!

The VIEW1™ suite of “surgeon ready” solutions, including Image Station™ and SurgeonConnect™ has been designed in collaboration with surgeons to enhance surgical workflow.

The goal of VIEW1 is nothing less than 100% support of surgeons’ needs – ranging from simply reading imaging discs to allowing the creation of a surgical departmental imaging infrastructure at a fraction of the cost of a full PACS system. Inexpensive, quick to install, and easy to use!

Beyond imaging, Global Care Quest offers a seamless upgrade path to include complete dashboard of clinical intelligence, called Clinical Command & Control™.

The VIEW1 Image Station is a surgeon ready, universal PACS reader/player that works with a variety of media types and input sources to provide virtually instant access to comprehensive study and series navigation. It can be deployed immediately on a simple standalone basis, or as part of a high speed network.

Images can now be immediately viewed in the office, clinic, and surgery suite --- even routed to the sterile field of the operating room. VIEW1 offers optional capabilities that allow the sharing of images with other clinicians plus integration with hospital PACS. The Portability Package includes iPads and a convenient web application for the iPhone.

GCQ’s VIEW1 suite provides inexpensive solutions to costly problems, improving efficiency and effectiveness for clinicians.
