May 5, 2008 – Hammond Clinic in Munster, IN, is now operating with eRAD PACS, allowing diagnostic images to be acquired at any of the three Hammond Clinic locations, using CT, MRI, nuclear medicine, CR and ultrasound modalities, completing its transition to an all digital department.
Images and radiology reports are made available to referring physicians and medical specialists using the Web-enabled eRAD system. The addition of PACS completes the conversion to an all-digital radiology department within the clinic. Previous building blocks include a Misys EMR system and connectivity of the disparate imaging centers via a fiber network.
Concurrent with the PACS implementation, Hammond Clinic implemented the digital conversion of X-ray to computed radiography. RPS Imaging of Michigan City, IN, was the provider of the computed radiography modalities as well as the eRAD PACS system.
