More importantly, patient satisfaction is increasing because out of pocket expenses are understood prior to the exam and our patients leave with their preliminary results.
Los Altos, CA (PRWEB) November 13, 2013
ScImage, Inc. announced today that it has successfully deployed its PICOM365 imaging workflow solution at Metro Imaging, a premiere multi-site high volume radiology practice based in St. Louis. The PICOM365 solution delivers the right balance between on premises end-to-end radiology workflow and cloud based VNA with an embedded universal viewing image portal. The result is an elegant and economical solution that meets the demanding needs of the practice.
According to Metro Imaging’s chief financial officer, Christine Keefe, the solution is driving significant back office efficiency by combining data from both, the electronic medical record and PICOM365 into their billing system. “The integration of PICOM365 with our electronic medical record reduces our administrative burden,” stated the firm’s CFO. “More importantly, patient satisfaction is increasing because out of pocket expenses are understood prior to the exam and our patients leave with their preliminary results.”
Metro’s referring physicians are also benefiting from PICOM365 with the availability of results from anywhere, on any device. Images and reports are instantly available to physicians as soon as the report is signed. Referring physicians have access to patients’ prior exam images and reports as well. The PICOM365 architecture allows Metro to offer this high-availability cloud service without any IT burden to their on premises infrastructure.
