As the snowy wind blew outside, the Apple board room felt more like a cozy living room, with healthcare professionals sitting on couches and sleek wooden chairs, immersed in discussion around radiology, Apple’s latest Mac products, and the reason they were there - Horos.
We're excited to announce that Horos Cloud Reporting was named one of two finalists for "Best New Radiology Software" in the Minnies 2018 awards!
A standard radiology report is a useful way to capture and succinctly communicate the results of most imaging scans, including X-rays, CT scans and MRIs. Whether in human health or veterinarian care, this summary of the identified condition and diagnosis is a critical communication tool between the radiologist and the treating physician or patient. While radiology reports are traditionally comprised of text, reports with key images improve communication by providing a new layer of depth and understanding for physicians and their patients.
One of the main reasons veterinarians love Horos is because it allows them a level of mobility they do not have with other platforms. By downloading the medical image viewer onto a Mac laptop, veterinarians can view their images from anywhere they have their computer. They do not have to rely on an image viewer that is linked to a stationary modality or a software that only runs on workstations within their practice, they can take Horos with them wherever they travel. This is especially true for large animal and equine veterinarians.
How do you make reports today and are they hurting or helping your business?
Are you still using Word, Pages, or another comparable program to create and distribute your medical reports? Do you get frustrated with never being able to find all your images and reports in the same medium? Does it feel like you are wasting time creating reports that don’t even look that professional? Well, if you use Horos, OsiriXTM, or any other DICOM open source viewer and have these concerns, Horos Cloud Reporting is for you.
