MedInformatix RIS Enhances Lenox Hill Radiology's Practice Management Efficiencies for Better Workflow and Improved Customer Service
Date:6/2/2011

NEW YORK, June 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Lenox Hill Radiology is first in its field with respect to leveraging cutting-edge technology to provide a full scope of diagnostic radiology services and care to patients, as well as to New York-area physicians, healthcare practitioners, hospitals, universities and researchers.

Lenox Hill was the first imaging center in New York City to attain American College of Radiology PET accreditation. It also was the first to provide physicians with online access to images and reports, the first in the city to offering direct digital X-rays, and the first to install a multi-detector CT scanner.

But it wasn't until 2002, when the 20-physician, five-location practice headquartered in the heart of Manhattan implemented MedInformatix' Radiology Information System (RIS), that Lenox Hill was able to reap comparable technology-related business benefits that had eluded the practice since its opening in 1988.

Lenox Hill utilizes the single-platform MedInformatix RIS solution to manage and perform a full slate of business functions including billing, scheduling, imaging, physician workflow and Electronic Medical Records (EMR) management. These functions have enabled the practice to easily manage large amounts of data generated from the large number of daily patient procedures it performs for the management and analysis of records, as well as workflow analysis that helps to measure both patient services and staff performance.

MedInformatix has provided unsurpassed training, service and support for each successive MedInformatix RIS release, which, with the solution's ease-of-use and robust functionality, has strongly contributed to Lenox Hill's continued growth, said Donovan Spamer, practice administrator.

"Just as important to us is the level of accountability and responsiveness that the company's support team shows in response to our questions and concerns, which largely have resulted from internal issues or uncertainty about how to apply MedInformatix RIS to specific operations," Spamer said.

The importance of accountability, combined with actual product performance, cannot be overstressed. Before transitioning to MedInformatix RIS, Lenox Hill used a system from New York-based software and consulting firm Mantis Technology, LLC, an experience that under whelmed Spamer and practice staff members. "It didn't work," he stated flatly.

The Lenox Hill team chose MedInformatix from a total of 20 vendors that responded to the practice's RFP. In addition to giving demonstrations of their respective products, Lenox Hill required each contestant to complete a comprehensive 300-item questionnaire covering system functionality, planned product enhancements, costs, training and support.

"No stone was left unturned," Spamer recalled. "A major consideration in our choice of MedInformatix RIS, in addition the company's ability to listen and provide feedback to our questions, was the fact that the solution integrates both PM and EMR capabilities into one system.

"The fact that it's SQL-based was, and continues also to be important as that gives us the flexibility to incorporate diverse hardware systems and tangential software solutions without fear of incompatibility issues," Spamer said. "We definitely made the right choice."
