Use case

One or more FibroScan devices are installed in your hospital / clinic. You are using Electronic Medical Records and therefore you need to connect FibroScan devices to streamline the patients and exams management for FibroScan. Admission and exam appointments are centralized using dedicated applications. Patient’s exams results need to be stored in patient files on EMR so that physicians and nurses can access data at any time from any computer in their daily patient management workflow.

As for the majority of Hospital Information Systems, HL7 communication protocol is the common language for all these applications.

FibroView Gateway is installed on a server in the hospital IT. It is configured in order to receive Worklist messages from Hospital Information Systems and build patient appointment list for scheduled exams on FibroScan devices. No more manual input of patient information is necessary on the device by the operator. The patient information is available on FibroScan device, and starting an exam consists in selecting the corresponding patient on the screen.

At the end of the exam, data and report are automatically sent to FibroView Gateway, also configured to transmit data directly to the EMR for storage in appropriate patient file.

FibroView Gateway adapts to the hospital application configuration and HL7 protocol usage. Configuration of the product takes in charge all possible messages format needed to comply with protocol implementation.

Application is secured:  configuration is accessible to administrator through password protected interface. Supervisor profile allows to access monitoring information.

For easier setup, connection with FibroScan is automatically established using Echosens built-in communication protocol over http(s). Light configuration is required on the device.
