December 6, 2016 — Candescent Health recently announced that Ohio’s Wooster Community Hospital has selected its RadPerform service to help unburden its radiology team of excess cost and time-consuming tasks. As part of the technology-enabled service, the department will also get a cloud-based picture archiving and communication system (PACS) to help eliminate major capital expenses.
“It has been well over a decade since there’s been meaningful innovation with PACS. Today, PACS still have very expensive legacy costs, such as service contracts and hardware refreshes. In addition, PACS continue to create a heavy resource burden for teams that want to take full advantage of, and leverage, this data for the creation of staffing and/or clinical models,” said David Harrison, director of radiology at Wooster Community Hospital. “Candescent’s team understands the importance of radiology being a 24/7 business and that it takes more than just a piece of technology. With their service, we’ll pay for only what we need and can help me save hundreds of thousands of dollars in capital and operating expenses. This will free up significant in-house resources and will help our team get back to what we do best, deliver patient care.”
Candescent Health’s RadPerform service is designed to help radiology teams at any hospital — both large and small — significantly improve the quality, efficiency and value of the work they do each day. Through its service model, Candescent matches each partner with the right set of resources to eliminate financial burdens, improve business decision-making and take on consuming tasks that take time away from providing patient care. Enabled by its cloud-based PACS, partners like Wooster will benefit from a service that includes:
- Dedicated business intelligences analysts with decades of experience in radiology;
- Use of Candescent’s 24/7 service center to provide administrative support to radiologists, technologists and administrators;
- Monitoring support from a 24/7 network operations center to ensure safety, reliability and availability of their systems; and
- Access to a growing network of specialists sharing best practices and coverage.
