Cloud-based RIS Unifies Disparate Technologies

July 28, 2010 – An upgrade to a radiation information system (RIS) was launched this week with new features to efficiently manage the workflow.

vRad Enterprise Connect 3.0 has several new features including the vRad PACS SM viewer, which was initially developed for use by vRad radiologists and is now being offered to customers. It also offers vRad ResultsSM, a communications tool that gives access to images, reports, and radiologists via the Internet or mobile device, and vRad VaultSM, a secure and virtually unlimited storage solution for radiology images.
All of the technologies are cloud-based solutions, eliminating large capital expenses, costly hardware solutions, maintenance expenses, and cost- and labor-intensive upgrades.

Virtual Radiologic Corp., (vRad) announced a licensing agreement with Baton Rouge Radiology Group, a long-time vRad customer, for its vRad Enterprise Connect SM 3.0 suite of technology solutions. The software will be used by Baton Rouge Radiology Group to unify disparate technologies including worklists, image viewers, and report generation and distribution; facilitate rapid critical results communication; and provide long-term image storage. The enterprise is the core technology platform vRad uses to manage and read 3 million studies annually from over 1,200 facilities. vRad has continuously advanced vRad Enterprise Connect with direct input from its more than 140 radiologists since first developing it in 2005.

The ability to unify disparate technologies was particularly important to Baton Rouge Radiology Group, which supports more than 70 hospitals, imaging centers and other facilities—all of which have different technology platforms—through its 25 radiologists.

“We conducted a three-year search for technology that would be a catalyst for continued growth, and for a partner with the expertise to support our complex customer base,” said Donald Trexler, CEO of Baton Rouge Radiology Group. “Finding this expertise was not easy, but when we looked at vRad’s technology offerings coupled with the deep professional practice knowledge they possess as one of the nation’s largest radiology practices, we knew it would be a fit for our business model.”

Baton Rouge Radiology Group originally joined vRad as an interpretations customer, using vRad for teleradiology services including night and subspecialist reads. Throughout this time, Baton Rouge Radiology Group was able to experience vRad’s technologies as a customer.

“We saw firsthand that vRad was able to efficiently manage the workflow of its more than 140 radiologists. We felt that if they were able to do that using their own technology, clearly it could work for us as well,” said Trexler.
