Allowing you to bridge patient information from a wide variety of patient management software packages to your digital imaging software.

Reduce task redundancy and potential errors by allowing DataGrabber to bridge patient information seamlessly from your PM system to your digital imaging software.

How It Works

How It Works

  1. Open the patient chart or appointment window in your patient management software.
  2. Click an icon to launch DataGrabber.
  3. DataGrabber will open your imaging software and then automatically open the corresponding patient record in your imaging software.
  4. For new patients, DataGrabber will pass the patient’s demographic information to the imaging software, allowing it to proceed with creating a new patient record.

DataGrabber allows you to bridge patient information from a wide variety of patient management software packages to your digital imaging software. This removes the added work of repeatedly typing in patient demographic information (name, DOB, SSN, ID, gender) in multiple softwares. For a full list of practice management and digital imaging solutions supported by DataGrabber, please refer to the following Apteryx Knowledgebase Article:

Overview: NameGrabber/DataGrabber Support Information

With DataGrabber, you can simply open your patient’s chart or appointment window in the patient management software, then click an icon that will always appear in the bottom right (next to the clock), and DataGrabber will do the rest. If your imaging software is not yet open, DataGrabber will open it for you, and then automatically open the patient’s corresponding record in your imaging software. If it is a new patient, DataGrabber will pass the patient’s demographic information to the imaging software, allowing it to proceed with creating a new patient record. From there, you can capture new images, or view your existing images.

Once you move on to the next patient, simply open their chart, appointment window, etc, in the patient management software, and then click the DataGrabber icon. The rest will be done for you.

DataGrabber also offers the ability to receive patient demographic information from a patient management software. So if your PM system offers built-in buttons to launch imaging softwares, but your imaging software is not in their list, you can simply customize it to launch DataGrabber instead. Once this is setup, you can simply click the built-in button in your PM software, and DataGrabber will pass the patient demographic information to your imaging software, allowing you to immediately capture or view images for that patient.

DataGrabber is also highly customizable, so if you would like to bridge from a certain window in your PM software, give us a call and we can easily determine whether this will be possible. Likewise, if your PM software is currently not supported by DataGrabber, we can usually remotely login to your system and create a custom bridge in a few minutes. Simply call us to discuss your options.

There are two components that allow DataGrabber to bridge patient information from your PM software. The “screen scraping” component will read the patient’s information directly from the window you have open. DataGrabber then passes this information to the DataDrill component, which will look up any other patient data (e.g. DOB, SSN, ID) directly in the PM database. Once DataGrabber has all of the patient’s information, it will pass the data to your imaging software.

The DataGrabber functionality is included for free in our Apteryx Imaging product line through Name Grabber, allowing users who purchase our imaging software to bridge from the same wide variety of patient management systems.
