Large Orthopedic Practice Renews Philips PACS Contract

July 21, 2009 - Philips Healthcare has signed an eight-year iSite PACS expansion deal with OrthoCarolina, one of the largest orthopedic practices in the nation comprised of 16 locations in the Charlotte, N.C. region.

The commitment is an extension of a current relationship between Philips and OrthoCarolina. OrthoCarolina first chose the Philips iSite PACS solution in 2006 as iSite PACS’s fee-per-study model allowed OrthoCarolina the flexibility to grow its PACS system as it began to convert each location from analog to digital radiography (DR). OrthoCarolina is entering the final phase of its conversion to DR.
“Our physicians regularly travel among our 16 offices and need access to images taken at any of our locations,” said Steve Hendrick, chief information officer of OrthoCarolina. “With iSite PACS’ ability to distribute across the enterprise, our physicians are able to pull up images at our satellite offices from our server downtown in seconds and better serve our patients.”
Once the conversion to DR has been completed by early 2010, OrthoCarolina expects to store about 290,000 new images per year on its iSite PACS system. Images will come from a variety of modalities, extending beyond radiography to include MR and ultrasound.
