"We selected Sectra, because of how well its RIS/PACS solutions automate workflow and guide users through the process from start to finish," says Imaging Systems Administrator/Analyst, Jason Vaughn.  "This end-to-end workflow management combined with an intuitive interface and flexible tools will help us speed our report turnaround, increase efficiencies and eliminate workarounds we currently have in place," adds Vaughn.

Sectra's RIS/PACS with embedded speech recognition will allow Nashville General Hospital at Meharry's medical staff and remote referring physicians to quickly and easily access reports and images online, and review reports with embedded key images.  Additionally, online image access will facilitate medical staff training with affiliated medical schools.

"Our goal in deploying a new radiology IT solution is to improve the level of service our multi-modality radiology department provides to referring physicians," explains Cathy Poole, director of marketing and public relations.

As part of the implementation process, Sectra will develop bi-directional interfaces from its RIS/PACS solutions to the hospital information, order management, billing, electronic medical record and lab systems, as well as a data migration of up to 170,000 patient records.
