PACS Imaging in PatientKeeper (PK) Update Wednesday, June 1st
IT intends to update the PACS launch in PatientKeeper Wednesday, 6/1 at 0530 AM
If a Physician viewing Imaging Reports in PatientKeeper wants to see the image, they can click a PACS link to launch the ‘ZDA’ viewer.
On Thursday, 5/26 we will update the PACS link to launch the same images but in our newer PACS viewer called ‘iConnect’.
The functionality will remain the same – Physicians will be brought directly to the image(s) they are reading. However, there will be some nuance if navigating in iConnect vs. ZDA.

Take Action: Vote No on AB 2060 – Keep the Medical Board of California a physician member majority!
Your advocacy is impactful! Legislators are hearing from their local physicians about the negative impacts of changing the composition of the Medical Board of California to a public member majority.
You prevented AB 2060 from receiving an Assembly floor vote this week; however, the author still has one final week to try to get the bill passed by the full Assembly. Your renewed advocacy during the week of May 23 will be the difference between stopping the bill on the Assembly floor and having the bill move forward to the Senate.
CMA urges your continued action, and we appreciate your voice in opposing AB 2060.
Please click here today to send an email to your Assemblymember asking them to vote “No” on AB 2060.

Contrast for Imaging Supply Chain Update – We received this letter from our supplier
May 10, 2022
Dear Valued Customer,
As you may know, one of the major US suppliers of iodinated contrast media in the United States is currently experiencing a supply shortage due to the stringent COVID restrictions in Shanghai. On May 6th, the American College of Radiology (ACR) posted a statement addressing this worldwide shortage; please review the message at this link for ACR’s guidance on how to manage your practice.
These restrictions are not impacting Bracco products supplying the North American market. Given the shortage of this major supplier, over the past week, Bracco has experienced an influx of orders from facilities looking to purchase Isovue® (iopamidol injection).
Bracco has taken several measures to protect our Isovue inventory and to ensure we have enough product for our committed customers like you. These measures include investing in increased Isovue manufacturing capacity, a focus on manufacturing our high-volume SKUs and implementation of a direct purchase model to allow for more control of inventory. At this time, we do not anticipate any Isovue issues in the foreseeable future and will continue to monitor this situation.
Today, in order to ensure that we maintain a steady supply for you and your patients, we have implemented a new process for our existing committed customers.
What does that mean?
· Effective last week, we started an order review process to ensure our committed customers are receiving product.
· Starting today, BDI systems are in place to process orders based on your facilities’ average order quantity. These orders will be processed immediately and will be shipped within your contracted shipping timeframe.
· Any orders over that quantity will be placed on hold and manually reviewed. If large stocking orders are placed, there will be a delay of approximately one week for processing, and the order will be fulfilled at your average order quantity; the remaining order quantity will be canceled.
How can you help?
· Place orders in the normal process and quantity for your facility.
· Do not place large stocking orders as they will strain the system and cause delays for you and other facilities
Thank you for your help as we manage through the next few months. As always, we are dedicated to ensuring a steady supply for you, our committed customer. Using this new process, and with your help, we do not anticipate any Isovue stockouts in the foreseeable future.
Thank you for your continued partnership.
