A thank you to our customers

By Helene Gey, Vice-President of Marketing, Intelerad

As we wrap up RSNA today, I just want to say thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth to have a look at the solutions we’ve been developing and to discuss matters related to the industry. Amongst those who passed by were customers who we greatly appreciate and value. It’s always a pleasure to sit down to discuss how they’re using our solutions and provide us with feedback.

In the past year, our list of customers has continued to grow. Part of the reason for this is the strong references we receive from existing customers when asked if they should deploy our solutions. We are also thankful to our customers for the survey responses that they provided to KLAS, which saw us named as the #1 ranked ambulatory PACS provider for the sixth straight year. In their press release on Sunday, KLAS described us as an innovator example that is strongly endorsed by their customers.

It’s always a proud moment, not only to win awards like this, but to hear such positive feedback being provided by customers to third parties. It’s reassuring to know that our customers are happy, and helps drive us to continue developing advanced solutions and providing the industry’s best support. The confidence it provides us also makes us want to expand our customer base and put our solutions in the hands of more radiology groups. Thankfully, we’ve been able to accomplish year after year.

This week, while attending RSNA, we were happy to have announced new customers. The first is TRA Medical Imaging, who are based in Washington State. One of the region’s largest radiology groups, TRA selected InteleRIS as it radiology information system. Given the group’s goal to be the premier radiology group in the Pacific Northwest, it is satisfying to have them put their faith in our solution. In return, we place to provide a RIS with the functionality, versatility and support to help them accomplish what they’ve set their sights on.

We also announced a deal with Baton Rouge, Louisiana’s Radiology Associates, a hospital-based radiology group that services a number of health centers in the region, reading 250,000 studies per year. As a group looking to increase efficiency and grow their business, they chose to deploy IntelePACS and InteleOne. Given our expertise in complex, distributed environments, I am confident that our solutions will help drive their success in the coming years.

As I sign off, I would like to welcome our new clients and say thank you to our existing customers for continuing to trust us as your solution provider.

RIC Expands Reach of Around-the-Clock Services

For Radiology Imaging Consultants (RIC), a large radiology practice in the Chicago area, providing around-the-clock final interpretations by on-site board-certified radiologists had vaulted it to a leadership position. Then growth became more difficult – with staff at maximum capacity and too many systems to manage – it was no longer feasible to provide 24/7 on-site staffing for all its customer hospitals.

Enter Intelerad’s Inteleone, a solution which enables radiology groups and hospitals to streamline their medical imaging workflows when reading for multiple facilities with different HIS, RIS, PACS and EMR. It provides a personalized, universal worklist and easy access to all studies, priors and reports from a single integrated viewer that can be accessed from any computer. In short, with InteleOne, location is irrelevant – exactly what Radiology Imaging Consultants needed.

“Until InteleOne, there was nothing that convincingly integrated multiple facilities seamlessly,” said Dr. Abraham Jay Bronner, RIC’s CEO and practicing radiologist. “No one else was able to do it.”

Central Louisiana Imaging Thrives with InteleOne

Dr. Stephen Rice, Radiologist

Central Louisiana Imaging (CLI) knew that expansion was the key to survival in today’s difficult economic climate. Like many radiology practices, the 13-member group has been plagued by decreasing reimbursement rates and winnowing margins. Confronted with this reality, CLI knew that in order to survive beyond the next few years, they needed to strengthen the ties with their existing customers and expand their business to serve more organizations.

But the first new expansion contract CLI signed led to the proverbial straw breaking the camel’s back. The challenge of managing a complex workflow across multiple disparate technology systems – including radiology information systems (RIS), picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), electronic medical records (EMRs), and other hospital information systems (HIS) – threatened to drag this group practice into a downward spiral of productivity.

To bring them back on course, CLI chose Intelerad’s InteleOne distributed radiology solution to streamline their workflow across the multiple systems using a single, integrated viewer and universal worklist. Since adopting InteleOne, CLI has successfully expanded its overall business by 40 percent without increasing staff. Revenue numbers and productivity levels have spiked.
