What is a Cloud-Based RIS System?
RIS systems are designed to help radiology-centric organizations and imaging centers manage and streamline clinical, operational and business workflows. When reviewing RIS vendors for your practice, finding a true cloud-based provider should be top priority. Unlike other RIS vendors, AbbaDox offers its RIS as a software-as-a-service solution hosted within its own radiology-dedicated, coast-to-coast private cloud.
Why Should Your Practice Use a Cloud-Based Radiology Information System?
There are many reasons why your radiology practice should adopt a cloud-based RIS system. With ever-changing regulatory requirements and reduction in reimbursement, radiology practices can find it hard to remain focused on the quality of patient care without affecting the bottom line. With AbbaDox, you’ll say goodbye to all those headaches associated with constant updates, cumbersome hardware, high-ticket capital costs, frequent maintenance issues including unexpected downtimes, and growing security threats. Your technologists, administrative staff and radiologists won’t have to worry about working within the technology, as the technology will literally work for you. All workflows and user interfaces are designed and optimized to streamline your practice for maximum efficiency.
The AbbaDox cloud-based RIS:
1. Eliminates the Need for Physical Hardware
With AbbaDox, absolutely no physical server hardware is required. Your entire platform is hosted in the cloud and can be accessed virtually from anywhere, at any time with a guaranteed uptime of 99.99%. No on-site installations, costly licenses, or technology staff are required. The entire go-live for your practice can be accomplished remotely.
2. Reduces Costly Capital Expenditures
Securely managing, storing and protecting your practice’s system and patient data can come at a huge cost. With declining reimbursements and expanding government regulations threatening to shrink the profitability of practices across the country, practice managers should be able to focus strictly on the fundamentals. Offsite servers and backup files, patient record storage, and one-off costs for system upgrades can eat away at the bottom line and detract from your competitive edge. With AbbaDox, you can rest easy knowing your data flows securely through a HITRUST-certified, fully HIPAA-compliant platform. Your entire operational ecosystem, complete with seamlessly integrated practice solutions is bundled into one predictive, transparent operating cost.
3. Alleviates Maintenance, Connectivity Issues and Unexpected Down Times
A cloud-based RIS allows your imaging center to eliminate those all too familiar frustrations with connectivity and when systems go down. With AbbaDox, user access and connectivity are simplified, upgrades are made instantaneously, and a system uptime of four nines (99.99%) is always guaranteed. Your practice will never be taken offline to undergo maintenance. New practices can be implemented quickly, and users are already able to operate remotely without configuring hard-to-maintain VPNs.
4. Minimizes Time Spent Waiting for New Features
When it comes to AbbaDox RIS, there is a constant process of innovation and evolution driven by real-time feedback from the practice management community.
