Foundation Radiology Group (FRG), a board-certified radiologist group that reads and interprets diagnostic images for hospitals, has licensed Emageon’s RadSuite enterprise content and workflow manager and PACS imaging software.
The Pittsburgh-based FRG said it is building a nationwide network of radiology physician groups to provide hospitals and other clients with 24-hour diagnostic imaging services. With the RadSuite and PACS software, FRG has the technical system necessary to deliver better turn-around time performance for diagnostic imaging reads and the opportunity for quicker response times and enhanced patient care from physicians, according to the Birmingham, Ala.-based Emageon.
Brandon W. Chan, MD, FRG’s chairman and CEO, said, “The Emageon system will not only improve our productivity – via its workflow management system – it will also provide a sophisticated image viewing and storage system for the medical images, such as x-rays, CT scans and MRIs. More importantly, the improved turn-around performance will enable our clients to provide enhanced patient care and patient safety.”
