Wilkes Regional Medical Center selects DR Systems PACS
Wilkes Regional Medical Center in North Wilkesboro, N.C., has awarded a $1 million contract to DR Systems for an enterprise-wide implementation of the company's Dominator PACS. Wilkes Regional has a McKesson hospital information system but opted to install DR Systems PACS. The hospital currently performs approximately 60,000 radiology exams per year. The center plans to add a new outpatient center by 2007.
The hospital is planning for a unified PACS that includes web distribution of images, report and audio summary, printing, faxing, document imaging, 3D, and billing capture and archive. The PACS workstations will have a common user-friendly interface and provide users with instant access to 'in progress' study images and audio summaries.
