Coryell Memorial Healthcare System Implements Avreo interWORKS
NORTH CHARLESTON, SC, JANUARY 28, 2014– Coryell Memorial Healthcare System is a community owned Critical Access Hospital whose mission is to provide the most proficient service possible to their patients while maintaining an efficient radiology workflow. As a Critical Access Hospital selecting a new PACS vendor, Coryell needed a solution that would not only support their Meaningful Use initiative, but also effortlessly integrate with their existing Healthland HIS and migrate data fluently from their existing PACS system. It was specifically important to Coryell that the PACS they selected have obtained certification as a Complete EHR, but also that it was user friendly and provided the ability to receive reimbursements. Coryell chose the interWORKS Solution as Avreo is not only because its interWORKS Meaningful Use Module for Inpatient achieved EHR Certification , but also has prior experience interfacing with the Healthland HIS as well as migrating data from PACS vendors.
Erni Fincher, Director of Radiology explains, “After evaluating PACS systems over a 3 year period, we chose Avreo interWORKS as it met Meaningful Use standards in a format that was user friendly and also had a history interfacing with our existing HIS.” The Avreo team that worked with us was friendly and helped us work through the day to day issues of migrating from one PACS to another. Due to the design and ease of use, our radiologist, staff physicians and technologists learned the system within a short period of time. Now, we have used it for over a month we all agree that Avreo was the right choice.”
Radiology is a critical partner in healthcare, yet many EHRs are not designed to support the unique needs of radiology and its workflow. Critical Access Hospitals need a solution that cohesively connects the radiology department to the hospital’s enterprise EHR, while empowering radiology to meaningfully participate in the overall healthcare discussion.
Avreo interWORKS is designed as an EHR for Radiology to extend RIS, PACS, Dictation, Transcription, and Distribution to support the needs of radiologists working in distributed reading environments while meaningfully communicating with the hospital’s enterprise EHR and other healthcare systems as your organization moves from Stage I to Stage 2 Meaningful Use objectives.
Avreo, founded in 1997, is a leading provider of EHR for Radiology to extend traditional RIS, PACS, Dictation, Transcription, and Distribution functionality to excel in distributed reading environments and meaningfully communicates with enterprise healthcare systems. Whether your healthcare organization is a hospital, radiology reading group, or ambulatory imaging facility, Avreo offers a solution to support the workflow needs of your busy practice while bringing radiology to the forefront of the overall healthcare discussion. Avreo is a privately held company based in Charleston, SC. Avreo offers our solutions on an operational (fee/exam) or capital acquisition payment model. For more information, visit www.avreo.com
