VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Schneck Medical Center in Seymour, Ind., has selected Change Healthcare as its new partner for enterprise imaging. Change Healthcare, which combines most of McKesson Technology Solutions with substantially all of legacy Change Healthcare, offers capabilities that will deliver wide-ranging financial, operational, and clinical benefits to payers, providers, and consumers. At Schneck Medical Center, McKesson Radiology™ and vendor-neutral Conserus™ workflow solutions will replace legacy systems and unify workflow across multiple radiology PACS systems in use by the hospital and its care centers. Together, these solutions will give clinical users a next-generation radiology PACS and workflow tools that will enhance communication and quality across the hospital.
The solutions enable hospitals and clinics to acquire and distribute medical images across the enterprise. McKesson Radiology™ offers a solution with clinical depth, characterized by disease-specific display protocols and embedded advanced visualization to help improve radiologists’ productivity and efficiency. Conserus Workflow Intelligence™ will enable Schneck Medical Center to improve communication and collaboration within its radiology department and with its contracted radiology group. This dynamic workflow orchestration solution will unify interpretation workflows across multiple PACS to help ensure cases are always sent to the most appropriate radiologist, and will also incorporate quality workflows like Peer Review, Radiology ED Communication and Technologist Review. Additionally, consulting and professional services from Change Healthcare will help ensure a successful rollout.
“Based on the solution’s advanced clinical features, its ability to unify our imaging specialist workflow across our varied PACS and locations, and a strong reputation in the industry, we believed Change Healthcare’s offering would be an excellent replacement for our legacy systems,” said Rita Baker, Director, Diagnostic Imaging, Schneck Medical Center. “Now, we can streamline workflow for all our clinicians.”
