This story captures a real patient, Sophie, and the hero who helped her, radiologist Dr. Boden. It's the story of how a single image saved her life.
Boston Medical Center (BMC) operates a busy MR department, with 40 radiologists and 21 full-time technologists conducting approximately 575-625 studies per week on three MR systems. The department schedules 30 minutes per exam, but long and varied protocols pushed many exams beyond 30 minutes, wreaking havoc on department scheduling and resulting in undesirable patient waiting times. In this case study, you will learn how they optimize and standardize their MR protocols to reduce exam times while increasing volume and revenue.
How do you consolidate radiology workflows into a single workspace, enable advanced analysis and quantification on the fly, simplify reporting and ensure quality to optimize outcomes in a busy mid-sized hospital performing highly specialized CT and MR studies? That was the challenge faced by Hospital Nuestra Señora del Rosario in Madrid, Spain, which is a private, full-service hospital with 200 beds and 16 of 26 radiologists devoted to CT and MR studies.
Leading healthcare organization Campus Bio-Medico University Hospital wanted to manage the prioritization and delegation of cases to the right radiologist at the right time and in the right order. A unified radiology workspace with enterprise disaster recovery back-up was implemented to relieve the time pressure on radiologists of having to decide which case to read next. Having all relevant patient information and studies in one view at the right radiologist fingertips can ensure a streamlined experience as well as improved patient outcomes.
