In this month’s post, we take a look at a MU success story from Pueblo Medical Imaging in Las Vegas, NV.
MedInformatix, a pioneer in the field of healthcare informatics, is delivering new levels of EHR efficiency to Pueblo Medical Imaging, one of the fastest growing diagnostic imaging and interventional radiology service providers in the Las Vegas region.
MedInformatix installed its RIS V7.5 in 2006, a time when Pueblo was seeing approximately 24,000 outpatients annually. Initially, the practice was not using the complete functionality of the RIS but, over time, added advanced billing and reporting features to help accommodate the more than 90,000 outpatients currently processed through their practice each year.
Pueblo Administrator Darren Blanford credits MedInformatix with providing him the tools and customer service to help the practice manage this impressive growth. And he says MedInformatix has helped Pueblo realize a “Paperless Patient Experience” that streamlines office procedures, increases data and workflow efficiencies, and minimizes the administrative burden for physicians and patients alike. “We have made a real commitment to achieve a paperless RIS and filmless PACS environment, from the time patients first walk in our office to the time they review images and follow-up courses of treatment with physicians. We think this contributes to better patient service and that ultimately means better patient care.”
Pueblo is currently upgrading its RIS to MedInformatix V7.6, one of the most comprehensive and technologically-advanced solutions on the market today. With the launch of V7.6 earlier this year, LA-based MedInformatix was among the first in the industry to be certified for Stage 2 Meaningful Use, as a Complete EHR for all 64 Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs).
“Pueblo has grown to be among the most enterprising radiology facilities in the Las Vegas Valley,” said Tom McGonigle, CEO of MedInformatix. “We are proud to contribute to their success.”
