Given Imaging Introduces New Rapid 5 Access Software
Given Imaging, a developer and marketer of gastrointestinal diagnostic products, has launched Rapid 5 Access, a new software that reportedly facilitates physicians' reading PillCam videos anytime, anywhere with the most advanced software tools.
According to the company, Rapid 5 Access brings many advantages to the capsule endoscopy program: it utilizes existing computers and network system to create, manage and store PillCam studies; imports patient demographic data for easy patient check-in; and exports procedure reports and images for use in electronic medical record systems.
Homi Shamir, president and CEO of Given Imaging, said: "Rapid 5 Access goes one step further in making PillCam capsule endoscopy fit seamlessly into the workflow of a physician's office. Integration into a facility's software system further reduces the amount of time spent on process and frees the physician and staff to spend more time caring for patients."
