- MC Strategies' New Online Solution Meets Research, Education, Communication and Compliance Challenges of Radiologic Technologists, Managers

MC Strategies today introduced Mosby's Imaging Suite (http://www.mosbysimagingsuite.com), the first fully integrated, online solution developed to meet the routine research, education, communication and compliance challenges of radiologic technologists and managers.

"Mosby's Imaging Suite will enhance the productivity, efficiency and quality of any imaging environment-from the physician's office and freestanding imaging center, to imaging and radiology departments in hospitals and academic medical centers," said Brian K. Bussey, President, Mosby MCS. "Radiologic technologists and managers can count on Mosby's Imaging Suite to help them access data, information and knowledge, communicate quickly and efficiently with colleagues and co-workers, meet varied regulatory requirements and create a genuine culture of accountability."

By blending reference, education, communication and compliance into a single online resource, Mosby's Imaging Suite empowers managers and technologists to quickly search and retrieve data and information, communicate across shifts and locations, and achieve regulatory compliance by tracking announcements and competencies.

Cathy Parsons, Administrative Director of Medical Imaging at Cumberland Medical Center, in Crossville, TN and a past president of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) believes that Mosby's Imaging Suite "will change the way imaging departments work by removing bulletin boards and break room postings, and save time previously wasted in searching for information."

Managing Increased Use of Imaging Tests

Mosby's Imaging Suite helps managers and technologists deal with this growing demand for imaging services by offering an online, searchable edition of Merrill's Atlas of Radiographic Positions and Radiologic Procedures. The online text features content integrated with color photos and radiographs of the most effective imaging projections and positions. Technologists and managers are able to decrease the risks patients can experience, reduce medical errors due to poor or inaccurate positioning, and save the costs of having to duplicate imaging studies. The rapid and accurate positioning of patients also helps technologists and managers serve higher numbers of patients, thereby boosting center or department revenues.

Meeting Continuing Education Needs

Mosby's Imaging Suite delivers continuing education in a media-rich environment, providing technologists and managers with access to more than 50 Category-A CE credits on topics such as MRI Patient Care and Safety, Sending and Receiving Radioactive Shipments and Ethics for Allied Health Professionals. Managers receive a single, unified transcript with the times, dates, and scores for each staff member's education and training activities. Managers also benefit from online testing for competency evaluation and tracking of results to meet compliance and survey requirements.

Managers can personalize and customized Mosby's Imaging Suite to build competency checklists and conduct assessments specific to an organization's requirements or the requirements of compliance and regulatory organizations, including The Joint Commission and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). For example, managers could build a checklist related to staff safety when performing a patient transfer before and after an MRI, rate each staff member's ability to perform a safe transfer, upload the information into Mosby's Imaging Suite, and then be able to quickly and accurately report on those competencies in the future.

Designed to facilitate faster, more efficient communication between managers, technologists and other healthcare professionals Mosby's Imaging Suite also allows users to verify and update physician and institutional protocols for projections and procedures, while also tracking communications through features such as digital "sign-off."

Mosby's Imaging Suite is the first product that brings together reference, education, and communication into a user-friendly, online format that will not only reduce the amount of paperwork in a department but also enhance productivity and quality for radiologic technologists, managers and administrators in any imaging environment.
