Fort Lauderdale, FL – June 16, 2015
Minneapolis Radiology Associates, a six-location diagnostic and interventional radiology center, has selected IDS AbbaDox Referring Physician Portal for comprehensive, streamlined results communications. The 18-radiologist group, which also has an extensive teleradiology practice, sought an advanced, easy-to-use web-based solution that would enable streamlined cross-location and -enterprise information sharing.
“Accurate and timely reporting is a top priority when working with our referring physicians and teleradiology clients,” says Eric Mortenson, CIO for Minneapolis Radiology. “Prior to this, we were utilizing a legacy physician portal that was part of our manual dictation-transcription solution. After upgrading this solution, we wanted to bring our portal into the forefront of technology to enhance its efficiency and convenience for both our referrers and our practice. AbbaDox was a great fit.”
Mortenson points out that the new portal not only upgrades existing functionality but also adds such advanced features as support for a full range of mobile devices, physician collaboration and automated remote printing. Minneapolis Radiology plans to implement AbbaDox image communication as part of its reporting in the near future.
“We examined a range of competing solutions, and AbbaDox Physician Portal was the only technology that truly met our needs,” he says. “It integrates seamlessly with our new dictation-transcription system and is extremely user-friendly. IDS is a future-focused company, and we are confident the portal will serve us well for years to come.”
The practice especially appreciates the benefits of IDS’ cloud architecture, which eliminates the need for in-house system maintenance and upgrades. It also enables robust cross-application communication that the practice can leverage in the future.
“We are proud to partner with Minneapolis Radiology, which has been a trusted source of expertise in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas for more than 40 years,” says Yaniv Dagan, CEO of IDS. “We are gratified that the practice is now relying on our technology to expand communications with their growing referral base and keep all information flowing efficiently for the benefit of patient care.”
Minneapolis Radiology Associates is dedicated to providing high-quality, timely and compassionate care that enhances the knowledge of disease and health through imaging, clinical practice and research. The practice provides an environment conducive to the personal and professional development of its physicians and staff and fulfills the unique needs of patients and referring providers. Technology is an important part of that commitment.
