New Mexico’s Largest Outpatient Radiology Practice Selects MedInformatix RIS

Multimodality imaging center lauds flexibility, integrated practice management and EHR functions

November 11, 2015 — MedInformatix said X-Ray Associates of New Mexico (XRANM), the largest outpatient provider of medical imaging services in the state, has selected the MedInformatix RIS V7.6 software suite.

“Once we made the decision to explore new RIS [radiology information system] options, we embarked on an exhaustive search to find a partner, reviewing more than 20 different providers,” said Sagit Frasier, chief operating officer at X-Ray Associates of New Mexico. “As we evaluated the various features we required, exploring each system’s ease of use and capability to integrate the back and front-ends of our practice, MedInformatix kept rising to the top. Their ability to seamlessly integrate with our existing PACS [picture archiving and communication system] and dictation system, combined with the solution’s scalability to address all our modalities, were superior to the competition.”

Of particular note, according to Frasier, was the integrated PM and electronic health record (EHR) functions of the MedInformatix V7.6 that facilitates the use of patient data for both the clinical and administrative needs of the practice, especially in the mission-critical area of revenue cycle management. “We are excited to see how this new RIS will positively impact our practice.”

XRANM offers a comprehensive range of diagnostic imaging procedures covering all modalities in radiology — including neuroradiology, musculoskeletal, interventional, vascular, breast and positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging — and treats patients from across the state at their seven outpatient imaging centers, as well as affiliations with multiple hospitals.

“From a technology perspective, one of the added benefits for us was the flexibility MedInformatix demonstrated to redesign and customize their RIS to meet the exact requirements of our multimodality practice,” added Krisztian Katona, PACS/RIS administrator. “Too many providers offered a one-size-fits-all approach that just didn’t work for us.”

XRANM was also impressed with the MedInformatix Client Advisory Board initiative where customers have the opportunity to engage with industry peers. The role of the board is to discuss best practices and advise MedInformatix leadership and product development teams on customer service initiatives, opportunities for new product enhancements and other client-facing matters. Frasier recently returned from the MedInformatix Client Summit in Austin where she was nominated as a new member of the Radiology Advisory Board. “The board demonstrates a real commitment to customer relationship management and the type of meaningful, two-way partnership that we desire. I look forward to collaborating with MedInformatix technology teams and my fellow clients as we work to advance our industry.”
