eRAD’s 2014 EHR-certified Radiology Information System (RIS) is a comprehensive solution designed from the ground up by a team of veteran imaging center operators, radiologists and programmers—all working together to solve real-world problems in today’s busy, multi-site imaging centers.
RIS Software Solutions
After evaluating Radiology Information System software offerings in 2010 for its own imaging centers, RadNet (the country’s largest owner/operator of outpatient imaging centers) started from scratch. The company teamed with experienced RIS software developers to commission a new RIS for their imaging centers.
Strong collaboration among expert imaging center administrators, operators, radiologists and IT professionals resulted in a new and comprehensive workflow automation solution. One that offers an unparalleled combination of tools and features specifically designed to meet the challenges of medical imaging in today’s market.
Audits, role-based reporting, sophisticated and calculated resource allocation—these eRAD RIS features empower you to plug time and revenue leaks. With robust tools, management reports and real-time dashboards, you can track patient progress—including the full scope of meaningful-use requirements— and radiologist and user productivity, including peer reviews for quality.
Centrally manage patient information, documents, procedure schedules, insurance verification, procedure authorizations and room allocations for single or multiple sites from a single, integrated application. The powerful search, patient merge and auto-populate functions allow you to avoid costly data errors. Tight integration with eRAD PACS enhances workflow beyond a traditional RIS/PACS interface, increasing efficiency and accuracy.
“With eRAD RIS, I have amazing insight and control over what’s happening in our imaging centers. With its real-time reports and dashboards, I can see exactly what’s going on moment-by-moment, as well as take a look at the big picture. Armed with accurate, up-to-date information, I can confidently make decisions that I know will substantively improve our business.”
“With as many as 20 remote sites sending us studies on a 24/7 basis, our workflow is complex and requires a certain degree of flexibility and the need to customize based on the institution. Not only did we find this capability in eRAD, but it also offered us lots of extra features. In addition to basic remote access, we got integrated report creation, dictation, transcription, speech recognition and distribution tools—which allows us to create and distribute medical reports with embedded key images to our referring physicians and institutions online in a secure manner.”
“We made the decision to go live with eRAD RIS no later than October. We had our first incentive payment in hand by April and are very pleased with the outcome, especially considering that we can now track performance across multiple sites in real time. It isn’t just about meeting the federal requirements; it’s about what this wealth of data means for our practice. We now have the ability to focus on growth, improve workflow efficiency and most importantly deliver better patient care.”
