PowerServer PACS Increases Efficiency Between 30-40 Percent

August 28, 2008 — Less than a year into the process, RamSoft has successfully helped PresGar, the nation’s largest privately owned medical imaging service company, establish a significant digital mammography presence at eight of its imaging centers.

The result has been increased efficiency among PresGar mammographers and technologists and savings for the company, according to RamSoft. If things go as planned, a ninth center may soon join the mix, combining RamSoft’s PowerServer PACS and Gateway Routers with PresGar’s new digital mammography system.

PresGar, of Tampa, FL, operates 36 imaging centers that complete an estimated 350,000 exams annually. To facilitate optimal viewing, 10 PowerServer PACS, some serving more than one imaging center, along with three Gateway Routers have been installed by RamSoft.

The digital effort began in October 2007 when the first new mammography system was integrated with the RamSoft technology. Seven other systems were added through mid-2008, and a ninth system will be implemented later this year. The new digital mammography systems, in New York, Virginia, Ohio and Florida, are replacing film-screen mammography units at each center.

Between 40 and 50 studies are completed daily at each site compared with 18 to 20 per day a year ago. PresGar’s overall efficiency has increased by 30-40 percent.
