FetView utilizes ultrasound image data to convey fetal growth projections. The vendor-neutral, cloud-based platform provides a user-friendly platform for communication between physicians and to patients.
Amsterdam-based Philips designed FetView by combining fetal ultrasound imaging with enhanced reporting and easy access to data and images. All results are securely stored and displayed in real-time, according to a news release.
The company said that, by enabling full digitalization of OB/GYN workflows and patient management, Philips FetView will help drive greater departmental efficiency, reduce costs and provide a better patient and staff experience.
“I see multiple patients from many areas in my daily practice, and the implementation of FetView has meant a turbo boost in productivity for my practice,” said Alexander Scharf, managing director, MVZ PraenatGyn, Mainz, Germany. “The flexibility of the software is seamlessly integrated into my existing workflows and everything I need to access in the reporting is just one click away. FetView has also had a very positive impact on my patients, who have showed great enthusiasm for this program. The digital sharing of ultrasound images taken as part of prenatal care in accordance with data protection regulations and shared via a secure portal, help provide added peace of mind which is so important to expectant mothers.”
Secure data and images
FetView’s vendor-neutral software retrieves images and measurement data through a secure, encrypted DICOM interface. It displays them in a structured layout for the easy additions of new information and data. The application also streamlines the generation of reports in PDF format to be uploaded to electronic patient records, Philips said.
“The cloud-based reporting and image sharing capabilities of Philips FetView enhance remote communication between physicians and patients,” said Matthijs Groot Wassink, GM, OB/GYN Ultrasound at Philips. “By digitizing the workflow, we are taking ultrasound to the next level, delivering smart ultrasound documentation to any OB/GYN practice. The digital reporting and image sharing, and fully customizable design are hugely helpful for physicians, helping to drive efficiency and cost savings with increasing patient satisfaction in their daily practice.”
