Both services and technology prove beneficial for free-standing center
Greenville, S.C., November 27th, 2017 –“This was by far one of the easiest and most successful go-lives in my experience,” said Jessica Byrd, Clinical Director and PACS/RIS Administrator of Wayne Radiologists in Goldsboro, N.C.
The privately-owned, free-standing imaging center provides CT, Nuclear Medicine, fluoroscopy, diagnostic X-ray, mammography, and ultrasound imaging services to residents across Wayne County. Last month, Wayne Radiologists implemented eRAD RIS, which included integration with the center’s existing PACS and its new billing system.
eRAD is a subsidiary of RadNet, Inc. (NASDAQ: RDNT) and a leading provider of standards-based, web-centric radiology image and data management solutions. “It was at a good price point,” said Byrd, “but our decision was really made after we talked to other users. Their current customers’ comments about the installation process, the helpfulness of the implementation team, the responsiveness of the support—that was really the determining factor for us.”
eRAD engineers migrated data from the previous RIS and ensured that information flowed properly across all systems. “They just went above and beyond to get the reports looking the way I wanted them to, and the PACS integration went off without a hitch,” said Byrd.
The practice gains efficiency with robust tools like document scanning. “That definitely was a positive feature for me,” said Byrd. “Before, we had to scan to a huge repository and then manually hunt for the document if we needed it. With eRAD RIS, we can scan in insurance cards and other documents, and they’re linked directly to the patient record. eRAD RIS has a lot more functionality than we had before.”
Seth Koeppel, Senior Vice President of Sales for eRAD, said, “This is a practice with a very strong presence in its community, and that’s exactly the kind of customer we like to help. As they flex their muscles with these features, they’re going to gain more and more efficiency. We’re especially happy that they didn’t hear it only from us—that our customers shared with them the benefit of being part of the eRAD family.”
