Learn how Sectra managed the complex requirements related to this large health system's RIS/PACS preparation and integration, workflow customization and training needs.

An integrated RIS/PACS was the answer for uniting a complex environment of facilities, standardizing exams and protocols and customizing reading for radiologists for ProMedica Health System, a large health system centered in Toledo, Ohio. Altogether, the RIS/PACS joins seven hospitals, 26 imaging centers and four radiology groups--and the results speak for themselves: report turn-around time has greatly improved from 24 hours to three or four hours, and even instantly in the ER.
