Workflow Solutions

Go beyond Radiology.

Enterprise Imaging Workflow helps decrease operational cost, increase efficiency, and maintain a high standard of quality of care in departments serving medical imaging. Find out how your colleagues around the world utilize the patient-centric imaging workflow solution.


Decrease operational costs through new tools and utilities

Through its intelligent tools and centralizing architecture, Enterprise Imaging Workflow can help to decrease operational costs.

“IDOC Builder is a phenomenal tool!, says Doug Ross, Radiology PACS Coordinator at Bay Area Hospital, Coos Bay, Oregon, USA.

He uses the easy tools that Enterprise Imaging Workflow offers to build interactive documents and clinical alerts to speed up the creation process.
He also appreciates the new guided implementation tools, stating “The feature had great links, and I liked that I could add a task.”

 

Anne Osowski, RIS Administrator, Bethesda Health, Boynton Beach, Florida, USA, describes the benefits of auto-generated patient letters in Enterprise Imaging Workflow: After dictation, the results are sent to the syngo Workflow SLR Mammography Module, where they are parsed out and stored in the appropriate mammography database fields. Then, the appropriate letter stream is applied.

“Currently, our staff spends two or more hours a day generating patient letters,” says Anne Osowski. “We estimate this function will save us about an hour a day. And, those patients whose assessment is entered by the radiologist will receive their letters one day sooner than before.”



Increase efficiency through paperless, mobile workflows

Missing something? In 44% of lawsuits, physicians report that missing information is likely to adversely impact patients1. This can be due to error-prone paper workflows. Bethesda Health, Boynton Beach, Florida, USA, consequently set up a paperless workflow based on mobile devices.

“Bethesda is also committed to taking advantage of the new mobile device application. The IDOC functionality can be accessed on any tablet type device connected to the facilities wireless network. This new functionality allows the staff the freedom of filling out patient questionnaires and documents, requiring a signature, without the constrictions of fixed equipment.” Anne Osowski, Bethesda Health



Maintain high standard of quality of care through access to relevant data

Did you know? 75% of lawsuits in radiology center around a failure to diagnose or communicate2. Enterprise Imaging Workflow enables a seamless exchange of imaging information, enabling informed decisions for all involved administrators and clinicians.

“Portal Administrator has vastly improved my day-to-day functionality, operations. [… ] I can be more engaged with the technologists and the radiologists while making changes in real time.” Anne Osowski, RIS Administrator,
Bethesda Health, Boynton Beach, Florida, USA
 

“My number one goal as a radiologist is to accurately detect disease and convey [results] in a concise and accurate format so the referring physician can interpret and act accordingly. Portal Radiologist helps me do that by having all the relevant important clinical information available at my fingertips.” Ariana Alvarez, MD, Bethesda Health, Boynton Beach, Florida, USA
