Olympus Knowledge Exchange System (KE)
An endoscope reprocessing record and image management solution
What is KE?
The Olympus Knowledge Exchange System (KE) is a next generation software platform offering facilities centralized reprocessing record and image management through expanded connectivity of Olympus devices.
The KE modular platform is built around standard communication protocols HL7 and DICOM which provide interoperability with most modern EMR, RIS and PAC systems.
When the KE communication and reprocessing management modules are used together, patient and procedure data flows seamlessly between the procedure and reprocessing rooms.
In The Procedure Room
Streamlined Data Entry
The KE system streamlines error prone keyboard and mouse data entry by allowing users to use an easy search function in the Olympus CV-190 interface. Users can save time and reduce data entry errors by retrieving exam and patient information from their RIS or EMR system(s) with the KE HL7 or DICOM modules.
Unmatched Image Quality
With propriety knowledge of the Olympus CV-190 video processor KE HL7 and KE DICOM offers the ability to transfer procedure images to a PAC or EMR system at the highest resolution available.
In The Reprocessing Room
Quality reprocessing outcomes start with quality data
The KE Reprocessing Management Module (KE RMM) is critical to achieving quality outcomes in the reprocessing room. An OER-Pro outfitted with KE RMM offers users the technology to electronically track reprocessing outcomes and indentify quality issues that can adversely affect patient safety.
Demonstrate a commitment to reprocessing compliance
The KE RMM data architecture makes merging patient, procedural and reprocessing records possible. By merging this disparate data together KE RMM allow users to demonstrate compliance with regulatory and accreditation agency standards.
Alerts, Notifications and Logs
KE RMM leverages the OER-Pro exclusive Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to streamline data entry. This RFID technology is also used to offer users notifications and alerts during user interaction:
Alerts and notifications
- Consumable replacement threshold is approaching or exceeded
- Preventive maintenance period is approaching or exceeded
- Cabinet hang time has been exceeded
- Alert users if an endoscope with gaps in reprocessing documentation is plugged into the Olympus CV-190 processor.
- Log high level disinfectant changes automatically
- Log consumable and preventative maintenance costs
- Log MRC testing results
