The entered text will replace the default text and the link to the study is automatically added at the end of the e-mail. The personalized text allows clear communication with the receiver and can for example refference to a phone call prior to the publication of the study.

Several search options have been improved in this releas

Patient name

In the search option you can search on the full patient first and last name or parts of it.

For example searching for patient John Doe can be doen in the following way:

  • John Doe
  • Doe John
  • Doe J
  • Do John

And other combinations.

Use of wildcards is allowed but not required.

Accession number

A field is added to the Search screen to search on accession number.

Patient ID

From this release onwards it is possible to search on a part of the patient ID e.g. first or last 4 digits. The result might return more than one patient.

Modalities

The list with modalities to search on is extended and now lists the most common modalities.

If you want to add tags to a study you can do a search for the tags in the list. This is especially for installations using a lot of tags.

By opening the tag editor, the current tags are listed.

Clicking in the Typing the first letter of the name of the tag in the free area will list the available tags.

A click on the tag will select the tag for this study.

The options for sharing a study are now the same for URL, e-mail and Refference code.

Activation period

The default list is extended with 3 more default options

Under more options, the activation period can be set for anything between 1 day and never expires.

Anonymize

Now also available for URL and reference code

Report Included

Now also available for URL and reference code

Verify birthdate

Now also available for URL and reference code

Security code

Now also available for URL and reference code

When sharing studies, you can now shares multiple ones at once under the same publication link / reference code. Your user will then be able to see the shared studies from a unified viewer showing the shared studies.

The uploader UI has been updated. It now gives the user a nice lace to track the upload progress and status while not getting in the way of the user, allowing him to continue working while upload is in progress.

We added options in the search screen so you can now search patient by birthdate and sex as well as by accession number and by multiple modalities

In addition to the split of publication between mine (for all users) and all (reserved to admin user), it's now easy to search for publications based on several criterias. When lots of publications are issued, this should help you find the ones you need.

publications consultation is now paginated and include a search field. We also split personal publications (for regular use to consult the publication he made) and all consultation (for admin user to consult the state of all the consultation in the system)

identify your patient more accurately with it's birthdate and sex

You now see at a blink of an eye which studies have reports and which don't.

Also , we revisited the presentation of the report. We now leverage the browser built-in pdf viewer.

And finally, if your study contains multiple reports, you can now choose which one to view.

As a system administrator, you can now set the default options for the sharing of studies. Useful if you want your user to always have the hospital policy proposed by default when it comes to share studies. Less fiddling, less error from your user.

We're working hard to improve the extensivity of our Identity Access Management. Thanks to a close integration of Keycloak, we can now rather easily extent the way to identify into Lify to other user provider like Ldap, OpenId Connect or Saml. Thanks to this, integration to national IAM (eg the belgian eHealth system) will be greatly simplified.

And don't worry about you'r existing user, we got them covered in the upgrade process.

In addition to publication by Url and E-mails, we now offer a user interface to publish your study by reference code. This will allow you to generate a reference code on-demand and print the code so that you can give it to your patient.

When you publish a study with its report, you can now set a retention period during which the patient has no access to the report. At this moment, this option is only available through UI

Using API, you can now attach a report (in pdf format) or update an existing report.

The patient portal now allows the user to choose its language. It also inform the user of the format of the birth date he has to enter.

It's now possible to configure the time by which studies are kept in the web portal differently according to the type of the study. For instance, you might want to keep the mammography exams for 3 years but X-Rays only for 1 year in your publication portal.

Please contact our team if you wish to configure your system.

The web portal is now configurable to suits your organization. You can now change the logo, the name and the helpdesk phone number displayed on the publication portal. Let your administrator head to Organization Settings -> Organization Info to enter your organization information.

Following previous enhancement, we extended the bulk actions range. It is now possible to delete multiple studies at once by using multi-selection

For a time, listing studies was great. But sometimes you want to have more details about a particular study. Thanks to the new study details view, you get a glance at the most useful information found in your study metadata.

Thanks to the latest Osimis Viewer Pro, you can now print directly your study from the viewer itself.

It has never been so easy to open your study in your external Osirix/Horos viewer. Once configured, your favourite viewer is directly accessible from the Lify study explorer.

Head to our demo to try it for yourself. Simply configure Osirix and Lify as below, then you're one click away from sending and opening the studies in Osirix.

Lify configuration:

Do you need to directly access the Lify API ? Now the api documentation is directly available from your installation at the /docs route in your browser. Kudos to redoc developers for such a nice Api presentation tool.

API Documentation

Latest documentation is also directly available from our site.

Extending Lify is now possible through WebHooks. When some events occurs, your webhooks will be called with informations allowing you to react on those events.

Configuration is still a bit harsh and number of events is rather limited, but let us know if this kind of extension interest you and we'll add a configuration user interface and add more events for your application to react to.

Carrying on our effort to make the Lify system fully administrable by site administrator, we introduce user interfaces to manage multiple aspects of your Lify setup.

With the Tag Manager, your Lify administrator can now setup all the kind of tags you can find in Lify.

Tag manager

With the Permission Manager, your Lify administrator has now the full power of Lify User Rights at his disposal. He can list all the permissions user or group of users has and he can easily edit permissions on study, tag or the entire account.

Of course Permission Manager is accessible directly from Tag Manager and User Manager. Simply spot the permission icon.

User can now log either using their username, or their email address.

For all keyboard addicts like ourselves, all popup dialogs in Lify now set focus on the first field and allow to discard the action using escape key.
