Starting June 5, New 'eView' System Integrates Images, Reports
Thursday, May 30 2013
June 5, URMC will launch eView, a new integrated Picture Archive
Communication System (PACS). eView will replace the two independent PAC
systems currently in place at URMC (Carestream and ImageCast/Stentor), and will
be used by both Imaging Sciences faculty and all others who view images and
Preparing for the eView Transition: Some Highlights
- Expect Minimal Changes:
With the exception of a new login screen, eView will
look and function like the current ImageCast/Stentor image viewer.
- Getting eView Direct
Access: Links to images and reports
will continue to be available from eRecord/ePartner. However, you can
directly access eView by clicking the eView link on the Providers page
from URMC’s Intranet, and using your same eRecord/ePartner username and
password. eView will also run on Apple computers!
- Viewing Remotely/Off-Network: Viewing images from your home
computer will work as it does today, though you will need to download new
you use VPN today, open up your VPN connection
and click on eView from the Providers page.
you don’t use VPN, go to the remote access portal,
and click on the eView button (effective June 5).
Personal Folders: While
eView provides you with the ability to create personal folders to store images,
existing folders in ImageCast/Stentor will not transfer to eView.
Before June 5, you’ll want to create a list of the names of the patients
and their MRNs in your folder, and then, once eView is live, you will need to
rebuild your folders using your list as reference. As always, be sure to follow
URMC policy when handling patients’ PHI.
- Image Loading Times: Most
images will load very quickly. However, images marked with an “A” on the
timeline may take longer to load, as these are archived studies.
Before June 5, if you have any questions
or concerns, please email eView
@urmc.rochester.edu. On June 5 and beyond, please call the Help Desk
(275-3200) for help troubleshooting any issues you encounter.
