RadNet, Inc., a provider for a network of 232 owned and operated outpatient imaging centers, reported in a press release that it has successfully implemented a Meaningful Use-ready workflow solution suite from eRAD, Inc (a wholly owned subsidiary of RadNet), in the first step to roll out the technology across all its centers.
RadNet's imaging centers in Brooklyn, New York have implemented a new RIS (Radiology Information System), PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) and report-generation solution featuring M*Modal's natural language understanding technology. These completely integrated solutions are certified as a full ambulatory EHR for Meaningful Use, Stage 1.
Steve Forthuber, RadNet's Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Eastern Operations, commented, "We are eager to implement eRAD's workflow solutions across the remaining RadNet imaging centers. The scalability and capabilities of the eRAD solutions will bring to RadNet significant operating and cost benefits."
