Radiology Group Taps AMICAS for Workflow Solutions

July 28, 2008 - Amicas entered into a new partnership with Arcadia Radiology Medical Group, a California-based radiology group, which will use Amicas’ Vision Series products in order to offer better service to patients and referring physicians.

Under the terms of the agreement, Arcadia will utilize AMICAS' Vision Series RIS, Vision Reach, Vision Series Financials and Insight Dashboards solutions. Vision Series RIS is designed to drive administrative staff productivity and revenue opportunities and offer robust scheduling, charge capture and workflow capabilities.

A reportedly zero install solution, Vision Reach allows radiology practices and departments to provide unparalleled service to referring physicians. Using common e-mail and secure messaging to deliver images, reports, and information to any e-mail-enabled device via a secure Web-based portal, Vision Reach also provides referring physicians with the ability to request orders for new studies via the new order entry module. Additionally, Vision Reach's Web-based design allows for easy integration with a variety of EMRs.

Vision Series Financials offers modern, Windows-based revenue cycle management technology to automate the identification and management of denials and follow-up workflows. Insight Dashboards is a Web-based business intelligence platform that provides access to customized, near real-time, easy-to-read data for key performance metrics and indicators, including both clinical and operational factors. This solution provides leadership with excellent visibility into operations.

"We have been working with AMICAS since 1987 and look forward to deepening our partnership," said Alicia Vasquez, practice administrator at Arcadia. "Since our practice is in California, one of the most regulated states in the country, we need to do what we can to manage the costs of running our practice, while continuing to provide excellent service to our patients. AMICAS is unique in its ability to help us serve our patients and run our business with their modern RIS/revenue cycle management platform."
