DocScan 3 - Rumors

Hello All - I think three different times I've said on this blog that I was doing a complete rewrite of DocScan.  Well folks, it's 98% done!  Here's two screen shots below to wet your appetite.  A few of the changes:
  • There is no longer a 6 image limit.  6 thumbnails are shown at a time, but if there are more than 6, then buttons appear to page to the next set of thumbnails.
  • You can easily reorder the thumbnails.
  • Screen Capture to grab a portion of your screen as an image. Great for snagging a bit of your EHR's patient history or some other relevant source into your PACS as an image.
  • The scanning interface is completely adjustable.  You get to decide what image manipulation buttons are shown and what methods of acquiring images are given to your end users.  
  • It works great standalone or it can be XML driven for PACS integrations (yes, RadSuite sites and Merge PACS 7 users - it works great in integrated mode and now it doesn't require any background processes, e.g., DocScan gets called, runs, and closes - sweet!).  
  • You can turn on an anonymization feature that will change queries to your production archive or MWL into anonymous versions in real time.  This is a stellar feature that lets you troubleshoot without exposing your PHI.  You can also choose to have the DICOM queries saved to the clipboard for troubleshooting and if the anonymous feature is on, the clipboard copies contain anonymous data, too.
  • Displayed date formats can be changed to accommodate the usual variations in international standards (MM/DD/YYYY, DD/MM/YYYY, YYYY/MM/DD)
Well, that's enough for now.  More news soon!
