In reading rooms across the country each and every day, radiologists are faced with the possibility of having to interact with multiple health systems, sites of service and PACS. Even within a single health system, there may be multiple PACS due to recent consolidation or other specialty reasons for having varied platforms. Whatever the reason, multiple PACS makes radiology’s workflow inefficient, leaving a group unable to effectively have subspecialty exams read by a subspecialist or leaving an individual radiologist logging in and out of multiple PACS throughout their workday.

Congratulations to Progressive Radiology on the recent acquisition of five imaging centers in the Chicago area. An Intelerad customer since 2009, the newly-acquired centers will focus on providing MRI services, increasing the total number of MRI procedures they perform by 17%.
The largest radiologist-owned and operated medical imaging practice in the Maryland and Washington D.C. area, Progressive is built upon a principle of providing accurate, precise results on which patients and referring physicians can depend. With this new acquisition, Progressive’s operation now includes 15 centers and 19 board-certified radiologists.
Like their Maryland and D.C.-based imaging centers, Progressive’s Illinois-based centers we will be using IntelePACS® as their technological backbone. Designed to facilitate enterprise-wide viewing, the solution enables Progressive to maintain a central archive in Maryland, where images are routed and stored, while their Chicago-based radiologists are using InteleViewer™ for reading and reporting on studies.
According to Dominic Mezzanotte, Progressive’s Director of Information Systems, deploying Intelerad’s solutions to the new centers went smoothly, and the new radiologists are quite happy with the transition to InteleViewer.
“Transitioning these five new imaging centers to IntelePACS has been almost seamless,” said Mr. Mezzanotte. “Thanks to the solution’s ease of use, we haven’t missed a beat. Our radiologists up to speed only required a couple of hours’ training, and since that time have really embraced the solution. In fact, they love it.”
