January 23, 2015 – Infinitt North America has partnered with Aris Radiology to develop specialized software solutions to automate operations that had been done manually and reduce the number of staff needed to support their radiologists.

Aris — based out of Hudson, Ohio — provides 24/7/365 radiology services to 140 hospitals nationwide, in various combinations of onsite/general radiologists, off-site/ after hours radiology services and full sub-specialty support. Many of Aris’ customers are 50- to 500+-bed hospitals that use some form of remote reading service to supplement local and onsite radiologists, but they have the capability to support any size facility.

One of the major challenges Aris and other radiology groups face is the need to read studies sent from unrelated facilities, each with its own remote access requirements and radiology information system/picture archive and communication system (RIS/PACS) reporting system. Multiple log-ons and disparate viewing and reporting tools detract from the radiologist’s efficiency and productivity. Infinitt has addressed this issue by standardizing incoming cases to present studies uniformly in the Infinitt viewer.

Another notable capability of the Infinitt PACS — called “Smart-Assign” — includes advanced routing logic, automatically assigning cases based on a number of factors such as radiologist subspecialty, credentialing and work schedule, while also factoring in Relative Value Units. The system automates prior exam availability for the radiologist without manual intervention.

These capabilities cut an average of 2-5 minutes per study from processing time and enable Aris to guarantee some of the shortest turn-around-times in the industry.

Infinitt is used for almost all of Aris’ software needs (e.g. client portal, referring physician portal, radiologist image access, radiologist reporting, radiologist resource scheduling, peer review, collaborative embedded instant messaging, critical results management, administrative dashboard controls and a sophisticated custom interface out to ARIS’s billing system).

The system facilitates the return of the report back to the sending facility based on site-specific logic — including HL7, secure emailing and faxing -– to the hospital and/or to the referring physician.

The Teleradiology Worklist allows the technologist to quality control (QC) the study, verifying that the RIS record is accurate and complete, before marking it “Ready to Read.” It also provides the client with an expected turnaround time based on the exam’s priority level.

Added security features at the facility level ensure that hospital staff from one facility are not able to access data from another hospital or facility. A timing feature to the radiologist’s worklist counts down the minutes and alerts the radiologist before time expires to ensure compliance with SLA guarantees.

Aris has also been able to add on-site or cloud-based archiving capabilities through INFINITT, to further expand its service offerings.
