Siemens Healthineers has introduced Syngo Carbon, a software environment for enterprise-wide image reading and reporting.
The software allows easy access to all relevant patient data generated in diagnostic processes and is not limited to imaging. Data from different departments is drawn out from various silos and integrated as part of a unified environment, including diagnostics and assessment, simplifying workflows and making it easier for different areas to work together.
“Our day-to-day clinical environment is highly fragmented,” commented Siemens Healthineers GB&I business manager for digital health Scott Sinclair. “We face a demand to have clinical images and datasets comprehensively prepared and enhanced using AI, and to ensure knowledge can be shared. Many clinical departments have their own systems for image management, archiving and reporting findings. This means reports can differ greatly and the data isn’t always universally available. Syngo Carbon offers our customers a modular, multi-departmental solution that can both manage and represent all kinds of imaging and report data in a patient-centred form. Structured data is automatically generated and made available via standardised interfaces such as FHIR (fast healthcare interoperability resources). The seamless transmission of measurements in clinical images also speeds up and simplifies the diagnostic reporting process. With Syngo Carbon, reports that previously only existed as free text are made available to all departments in a quantified form suitable for automated processing, for example for the application of treatment guidelines.”
