A reliable radiology information system (RIS) offers the electronic means to efficiently manage a radiology practice in all aspects that offer the best in patient care and practice management.

Scheduling

The first step of any medical practice is capturing patient information and scheduling. Capturing accurate patient data is important for reporting and billing purposes. Giving patients the means to communicate with your practice online has time-saving benefits.

  • Patients can request appointments.
  • Patients can electronically communicate with your practice when information is not urgent.
  • Results can be marked for patients to view in the privacy of their homes.
  • Patients can edit their personal information.
  • Your practice will save paper and time offering patients the capability to complete patient paperwork online.

Resource Management

Return on investment is vital to maintaining and growing a practice. Resource management allows you to optimize the resources that are vital in creating the best return on investment. 

  • Staff and equipment schedules are critical to a radiology practice. Downtime of technicians, physicians, and equipment means loss of revenue.
    • Does your practice have multi-modality scheduling and the means to see your deficiencies?
  • Inventory management is critical in running a practice.
    • Are you efficiently ordering necessary supplies versus overstocking items that are not often needed?
  • Financial resources are vital to keeping your practice operational. 
    • Does your practice know where it stands financially with money coming in and money going out? 

Examination Performance Tracking

Turnaround times (TAT) is a main factor of the radiology world. Quick imaging and interpretation are the services important to keeping your practice operational and profitable.

Accurate and thorough dictation is vital for patient care. It is also necessary for the complete billing of all services rendered inclusive of any billable supplies utilized.

Results Distribution

Essential for the accurate treatment of patients, results distribution is especially critical for patients with life-threatening illnesses or injuries. Having the ability to quickly and securely return patient information is imperative to build relationships with referring physicians.

Procedure Billing

Procedure billing is only as good as the right codes captured and billed out. The time of returned denials and recreating accurate invoicing leads to time and money wasted. A system inclusive of the billing codes that populate via dictation will eliminate delayed and inaccurate billing processes. 

PACS and HIS Integration

Having the ability to integrate with the PACS and HIS databases allows your practice to capitalize on time-saving record retrieval and transmission.
