Desert Imaging Selects IDS AbbaDox RAD for Turnkey Radiology Workflow

IDS announced today that Desert Imaging (DI) (El Paso, TX) has implemented IDS’ AbbaDox RAD cloud-based radiology IT platform to manage imaging workflow for its growing multi-site imaging practice. DI’s two outpatient imaging centers and mobile mammography suites are benefitting from AbbaDox RAD’s seamlessly integrated RIS, PACS, Voice2Dox speech recognition clinical reporting, referring physician portal and CRM to expand their referral base.

“After a thorough survey of the marketplace, we found that IDS provides a single, turnkey suite of solutions that can seamlessly manage our clinical and administrative needs from end to end,” says Raul Arizpe, DI General Manager. He notes that as a secure cloud-based platform, AbbaDox RAD eliminates the need for internal IT support and delivers automatic upgrades to keep the practice in the forefront of the technology curve.

“IDS not only provided us with superior technology,” adds Arizpe, “but their dedication to customer service is outstanding.”

The DI installation took advantage of the innovative AbbaDox Integration Cloud Service to streamline the HL7 implementation process. “All set up of customized interoperability and HL7 information flow was managed by IDS as a turnkey service that relied on its existing HL7 building blocks. The entire project was virtually plug-and-play with minimal disruption in our workflow,” Arizpe notes. DI was up-and-running with state-of-the-art functionality in weeks.

“The age of healthcare IT in the cloud has arrived. Like Desert Imaging, more and more medical facilities are recognizing the benefits of cloud-based enterprise solutions. They realize that the outpatient imaging space has changed with a focus on a high level of service and patient satisfaction like never before. AbbaDox cloud offers unmatched flexibility with intuitive workflows and collaboration tools, and streamlines referring physician communication — enabling this focus,” says Yaniv Dagan, CEO of IDS. “We are extremely pleased to partner with Desert Imaging, which is committed to leveraging the latest technologies for the benefit of patient care and to grow their patient base.”

Dagan notes that IDS cloud-based infrastructure makes the number of client imaging locations irrelevant. “We have a growing number of users around the country that rely on AbbaDox RAD and the IDS cloud as their operational focal hub for multiple sites. IDS carefully manages all technology, which resides at the Terremark NAP of the Americas data center.”

Today, the fully integrated AbbaDox RAD cloud-based product suite streamlines exam scheduling, intake forms management, interpretation, results communication, image sharing and physician communication for DI’s broad range of state-of-the-art exams. These include MRI, CT, PET-CT, bone density, fluoroscopy, digital mammography, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, and x-ray. AbbaDox RAD technology also plays a key role in the management of the practice’s mobile mammography service, which reaches out to the community with a high-tech digital breast imaging suite on wheels.

Through the AbbaDox RIS, exam scheduling is accessible across all facilities and the mobile installation. A modality worklist speeds workflow and assures data accuracy. Voice2Dox provides integrated speech recognition and a full range of customized, searchable templates. Reports may be signed from any PC, tablet or phone.

A valuable feature for referring physicians is the ability to access final results, diagnostic DICOM images and historical reports quickly and easily through the online DI physician portal. Technologists operating the mobile mammography program simply log on to the system through any available internet connection and enjoy full functionality.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software?
