StatLink® Systems, a Memphis-based process management company, has announced the purchase of AccuRead Endoscopy, a California-based capsule endoscopy reading company.
Capsule endoscopy is a procedure during which a physician gives a patient a small pill that contains a small video camera that takes pictures of specific areas of the intestinal tract – particularly the small intestine, which isn’t easily reached with more traditional endoscopy procedures. As the capsule travels through the intestines, the camera takes thousands of pictures that are transmitted to a recorder worn on a belt around the waist. These images are stored and then processed for analysis, which allows precise treatment regimens to be instituted.
AccuRead provides a secure portal for physicians, clinics and hospitals to upload primary test data from which a thorough, accurate and detailed data/video report - specifying procedural details, passage times and images – is developed and delivered back to the sender. The reports are then reviewed by the referring physician for interpretation and diagnosis. AccuRead also provides archiving of each study video, thumbnails and report to a secure, off-site server using StatLink’s state-of-the-art management software platform, InfoCentralTM.
“We are excited about having AccuRead and capsule reading technology as part of the StatLink Systems family,” said Dana Capocaccia, president and CEO of StatLink. “As a process management company with success within the health care delivery system, we’re always seeking out opportunities that make sense for us as we look to grow and expand our technology within a wide variety of verticals. Capsule endoscopy reading services will continue to grow as part of health care delivery, and we wanted to utilize our software platform, InfoCentral, to capitalize on the existing potential.”
StatLink intends to fully integrate AccuRead’s current processes into Statlink processes as they fit extremely well within the core competencies of the company.
