Illinois Radiology Group Improves Physician Efficiency and Reduces

Duplicative and Unnecessary Incidentaloma Exams Through Access to

Previously Unavailable Priors

CHICAGO, Nov. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- RSNA Booth #5924 -- Compressus Inc. and Advanced Radiology Consultants, S.C. (ARC), a 22 physician radiology group in Illinois, announced today that ARC has improved physician efficiency and patient safety, reduced unnecessary and duplicative tests, and decreased diagnostic turnaround time by 600% through interoperability. The announcement was made here at 93rd Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), November 25-30, 2007.

Supporting 11 facilities with 22 board certified radiologists, ARC reads and creates diagnostic reports for more than 300,000 medical imaging exams a year. The interoperability implementation involved the installation of a spectrum of Compressus' MEDxConnect System components, designed to enable seamless integration of disparate information systems and provide users the freedom to select best of breed PACS, HIS/RIS, EMS and CIS tools, regardless of vendor.

"Physician efficiency and improved diagnostic turnaround is critical not only to address the growing demand for imaging services, but also to improve patient safety and outcomes. ARC recently completed the initial implementation of the MEDxConnect Enterprise Systems Integration solution from Compressus, designed to seamlessly connect all of our systems so we can fully leverage physicians' subspecialty expertise and get the right images to the right physician regardless of where they were generated or where across our network the physician may be located," according to John Anastos, MD, chairman of radiology at Advocate Lutheran Hospital and president of ARC.

Phase one of the implementation supported Parkside Imaging, Parkside MR, ARP Buffalo Grove and Oakmill Imaging. Results from the i
