BRIT Releases Roentgen Works Version 2.2 with Enhanced
Image Sharing Functionality

DALLAS, TX, and CHICAGO, IL, December 1, 2013 - BRIT Systems announced today Roentgen Works Version 2.2, designed to enhance clinical communication and collaboration with enhanced image sharing functionality. Roentgen Works is the company's 100% browser-based platform for enterprise PACS/RIS, including a vendor neutral archive, cloud-based storage and image sharing, and critical results reporting. BRIT will be showcasing the Roentgen Works and other solutions at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, December 1-5 in Chicago.

Roentgen Works 2.2 provides the ability to generate QR codes in reports that link to the study's images. With the increasing use of mobile devices, such as iPads, to view medical images and information, the QR codes provide a quick, simple and secure link to the DICOM study for use by patients or physicians.

A new Upload Request tool allows a user to send an email link to people so they may easily upload studies or reports via the Roentgen Cloud. For example, a radiologist can submit a request to have a comparison study uploaded or a hospital can request a remote facility to upload a new study. The studies can be uploaded with the proper patient ID in the requesting system, saving steps and times compared with importing CDs. BRIT's Download for CD tool has been enhanced to optionally include a viewer and password. Now, users can burn their own CDs or DVD's to hand to patients.

Additional enhancements have been made to the user notification alert system in Roentgen Works. Clinicians can email and/or text a message to another clinician to alert them of a new study, status of a current study, or critical result findings.

"The enhanced features available in Roentgen Works 2.2 are the result of our ongoing commitment to facilitate electronic communication between clinicians utilizing modern, mobile technologies," says Shelly Fisher, President of BRIT Systems. " Specialists, radiologists and referring physicians can more effectively and timely coordinate a patient's care when they have the tools to efficiently communicate."

BRIT Systems is showing Roentgen Works Version 2.2 at the 2013 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), being held in Chicago December 1-5, and will be delivered in the first quarter of 2014.
