'Swipe Card, See Image': OAD Orthopaedics Improves Clinical Workflow with OrthoFlow
Date:3/10/2009

COLUMBIA, Md., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Orthocrat, Ltd. announced today that OAD Orthopaedics of Warrenville, Illinois, has successfully implemented its groundbreaking OrthoFlow workflow solution.

OrthoFlow is designed to save precious clinical time for busy clinical providers who move from exam room to exam room, seeing large volumes of patients each day. When a provider enters a room, he simply swipes his badge over a reader, and the images for that patient are instantly displayed. When he leaves, he swipes again, and the computer is locked until the provider enters to see his next patient.

"We recently opened our newest facility, a full-service medical facility in Naperville," said Dr. John Andreshak, who specializes in the surgical treatment of neck and back disorders. "In this facility, we are completely digital, including an industry-leading PACS system."

With over 20 orthopedic providers, OAD Orthopaedics (known by patients and staff as simply "OAD") is one of the largest orthopedic groups in the greater Chicago area. OAD's surgeons and other providers provide specialized orthopedic care in every area of orthopedics, and practice at multiple sites, including the state-of-the-art DuPage Orthopedic Surgery Center.

Dr. Andreshak continues, "When I enter an exam room, I simply swipe my card, and can immediately begin to interact with the patient in the room. I don't have to login, search for the patient, and wait for the images to load. Also, the computer is HIPAA-locked, so the patient cannot attempt to use it for any purpose while waiting for me."

Julio Arevalo, OAD's PACS Administrator, points out a different benefit: "Most medical practices employ a variety of security mechanisms to prevent the patient from playing with the computer in the exam room. With OrthoFlow, not only are our providers able to instantly see the patient's images simply by swiping their badge, but I never have to worry about the patient being able to do anything that might compromise patient confidentiality."
