Misys Healthcare Systems and Texas Health Resources (THR) have inked a multimillion-dollar agreement to extend the Misys Radiology Information System (RIS) across inpatient and ambulatory settings to streamline access to medical imaging reports and diagnostic data enterprise-wide.
Currently installed in three acute care facilities, Misys Radiology will be deployed to nine additional hospitals and configured to serve 12 hospitals on a single database.
Misys says the centralized repository radiology results provide information to support clinical outcomes studies. The facility plans to combine the newly deployed RIS with speech recognition technology to improve report turnaround time for referring physicians.
THR is one of the largest faith-based, nonprofit healthcare delivery systems in the United States and serves more than 5.4 million people in north central Texas.
