IA’s Strategy: Create an easy button for physicians to order exams and to receive reports.

"DigitalOne was chosen by IA as a partner in an effort to streamline and automate the workflow for referring physicians – creating an easy button for them – and allowing IA to provide sub-specialized reports quickly and dependably back into our referring physician EMRs within hours after the patient is finished with their exam. ” indicates Ward Hinger, CEO of IA.

DigitalOne provides a proven platform that is capable of interfacing with referring physician systems using a variety of technologies, from HL7 bi-directional to minimum footprint. IA has started implementing the DigitalOne platform to connect various disparate EMRs with IA’s RIS/PACS. The relationships that DigitalOne has already established with EHR vendors have allowed them to facilitate this initiative on behalf of IA and their referring providers. This has helped minimize cost and expedite timelines in the execution of their connectivity strategy.

“DigitalOne is a true partner in this effort. We have had successes in two betas with Greenway and eClinicalWorks as well as some smaller EMR’s and the results have been real pleasers for our referring physicians” says Hinger.

Mr. Hinger is very proud of his partnership with Alaska’s largest radiology group – Alaska Radiology Associates - the premier multi-specialty radiology group in Alaska. In fact, the only group of Alaskan Radiologists which have all major imaging sub-specialties represented.
