For Enhanced Patient Care, Efficiency and Workflow Flexibility
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – July 7, 2015 – IDS announced today Fajardo Imaging, a well-known imaging center on the Island of Puerto Rico, has selected AbbaDox Rad modular cloud solutions to enhance patient care, efficiency and workflow flexibility. The practice will implement a fully integrated AbbaDox EHR, RIS, and Referring Physician Portal, as well as Voice2Dox speech recognition and reporting platform.
“Fajardo Imaging is part of a growing roster of clients of all sizes taking advantage of the benefits of IDS’ integrated cloud IT platform to automate workflow, create an anywhere anytime work environment and facilitate interoperability with IT systems beyond the enterprise,” says Yaniv Dagan, CEO of IDS. “Practice administrators conducted a search of multiple vendors and found IDS technology best met their goals. They particularly benefit from IDS cloud architecture which provides ease of use, reduces costs, and shifts the responsibility of system maintenance and upgrades to vendors.”
“With medical specialists often in short supply in Puerto Rico, physicians need to leverage their time by building in workflow efficiencies,” says Orlando Laza, owner of Answer Medical Solutions, Inc., the Caribbean distributor responsible for the sale. “The ability to reliably communicate images and data remotely is particularly important in Puerto Rico and throughout the Caribbean because medical practices may be separated by large geographic distances and involve cross-island data sharing.”
Located on Puerto Rico’s east coast, Fajardo Imaging is a highly regarded 30-year-old, multi-modality practice operated by a single radiologist/owner, assisted by two part-time teleradiologists. Enabling seamless data access across its two locations and to radiologists at home was extremely important.
“My practice leaves me very little free time,” says Diana Fernández-García, M.D., “so the flexibility the system provides to work anytime, anywhere is very convenient. Being able to access the dictation and reporting platform and the images from home using a standard Internet connection allows me to better manage my caseload.”
The practice wanted multiple additional technologies all built on a single integrated platform as well as the ability to grant information access to referring physicians and other authorized users as needed. After looking in depth at more than three competing solutions, it found that AbbaDox RIS had the most comprehensive set of solutions available–from a radiology-specific certified EHR and patient portal to a RIS and reporting system. “We worked closely with Mr. Laza throughout the selection process,” notes Fernández-García. “He listened to our needs, willingly answered all of our questions, and gave us the confidence to make the right decision.”
