Cuattro is a world leader in Digital Radiography, Ultrasound, Cloud PACS, Cloud based Vendor Neutral Archive, and X-ray systems. With over 15 years of experience, the Cuattro team and its founders have successfully partnered with doctors and institutions across a wide range of specialties for over 5,000 successful Flat Panel Digital Radiography installations throughout the world.
Our integration allows you to automatically submit an order (study) based on a procedure code. This saves you and your staff valuable time by skipping the client/patient entry in both systems and reduces the chance for missed charges.
Then you can view an imaging study from within our system without having to log in to both.
By default, the integration with Cuattro’s ViewCloud is not enabled. To enable, you can go to Settings, then under Integration Settings, there is an option to enable Cuattro’s ViewCloud. Checking the option will display a new section below that for configuring your ViewCloud account.
You need to obtain this information from Cuattro. We do not have access to this information.
Once that is configured and saved, you can set up your procedures to be a ViewCloud order code.
Go to Settings, then Procedures. Locate your imaging services like Radiology. If you do not have imaging services, please create new service codes for your imaging services offered. A good example is Radiology 2 View or Radiology 3 View.
Edit the procedure and at the bottom is an option to indicate the procedure is a ViewCloud item. Check that box and select which type of image modality. Save the changes and close.
That completes the setup of the integration. You can now create a new study and view the study display from within our system.
Creating a New Study
To create a new study, you need to open a patient’s record, then add a ViewCloud procedure, which was created or updated in the previous setup steps.
The system will automatically then transmit the client/patient/study information to the ViewCloud system. Once the item is added, go back to the medical record view.
If you are viewing the record by groups, then you will notice a new section labeled “Imaging Studies”.
If you are viewing the record by date, then you will notice a new entry called “Imaging Study”.
The procedure you just added should be listed here. The name, provider, and service date are pulled directly from the treatment item. If you need to alter any one of these, please update the treatment item and the changes will be reflected on this list. Please note, the changes do not automatically get sent to the ViewCloud service.
From this list, you can click to view and you can remove. Removing the study only removes it from this list. It does not remove the treatment item as well. If you need to remove the treatment item, you will need to remove it from the treatment page.
However, removing the treatment item will cause the study to be removed from our system as well.
Performing any of these actions will not update or remove studies from the ViewCloud service.
To view the study, locate the imaging study list in view by groups or the imaging study in view by date. Click the magnify glass to view.
You will be taken to a new page that loads the ViewCloud viewer. From here, you can work with the study as if you were in the full ViewCloud WEB application.
How it Works
After the procedure is added, an order is created through ViewCloud. ViewCloud communicates with your onsite imaging system (xray, ultrasound, ct, etc..). Then when you use your onsite machine (i.e. x-ray), search for order by accession/patient/client and process like normal.
The study is sent up to ViewCloud for storage. At that point, the study in ViewCloud is linked to the patient's EMR in the eVetPractice system. You can view the study at any time within your eVetPractice system.
We don’t download the study (images), everything stays in the ViewCloud. If you need to email/print study, you have to do that from the ViewCloud system and that can be done through the viewer that is loaded in the EMR.
When printing the medical record, the imaging study is printed as a single line entry and the images are not included. To send the study, you will need to send those from the ViewCloud Study Display (Viewer).
