"We would not be in a position to attest had it not been for MedInformatix's support staff," Best said. "It would have taken five times the effort without him."
The MedInformatix RIS supports MU-related workflows and streamlines work processes principally by eliminating the need for paper documents,which has enabled CRR's imaging centers to improve efficiencies and reduce costs.Before implementing the MedInformatix RIS, for example, incoming patients filled out registration sheets on a clipboard while waiting to be seen.Now they interact with a registration clerk in front of a Wacom touchscreen while paper documents are scanned electronically into the system. The patient can review data as it is entered, make corrections and sign documents electronically, resulting in an absence of errors that would delay exam processing or affect insurance filing.
By displaying updated information on patient status at any time, the MedInformatix RIS also has improved interdepartmental communications as the patient progresses from check-in and registration to examination and checkout. "That real-time coordination between the front office and the imaging area reduces patient wait time and makes everyone more efficient," Best said. "Hard-dollar savings related to paper purchases and shredding and improved staff efficiencies make this a winning solution."
The MedInformatix system's integration with the CRR's Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) amplifies coordination further by producing reports in record time.For example, mammography results are often available in the referring physician's office before the patient has left the imaging center.
