University of Pittsburgh Medical Center's SingleView is a standards-based platform that provides a federated PACS to unify views of all patients' imaging reports and prior studies across UPMC facilities. When you're part of a large integrated healthcare delivery system like UPMC--which has 20 hospitals, 30 outpatient imaging centers and other facilities performing medical tests, the use of disparate medical imaging is multiplied over many times. The SingleView system developed by UPMC allows radiologists to access reports and imaging studies residing in any of the many PACS and other imaging systems in the UPMC enterprise so that they can compare a patient's imaging when making a reading. Having this information available to about 20,000 UPMC clinicians and radiologists is reducing the number of unnecessary or redundant tests ordered for patients, helping the patients avoid unnecessary exposure to radiation. It's also reducing the number of disputes with payers regarding unneeded or redundant testing, said UPMC officials.

Overall InformationWeek 500 ranking: 5
