Radiology Joint Venture Adds RIS to Accelerate Billing Cycle

January 25, 2010 - Tri Hospital MRI Center of Port Huron, Mich., was seeking a radiology information system (RIS) that included integrated business workflow from scheduling through billing to service a joint venture of Port Huron Hospital, St. Joseph Mercy Hospital and St. John River District Hospital.

Their priority was to find a RIS that had high functionality and easy integration with its other image management applications. Steven Geib, Tri Hospital MRI supervisor said they looked at a solution with intuitive worklists and user-friendly tools, with practice analysis and financial reporting capabilities to help fulfill Certificate of Need requirements. Plus, the solution, Fusion RIS by Merge Healthcare, featured an integrated billing systems, which Geib anticipated would be a time saver with more complicated billing such as split bill reconciliation.

Fusion RIS is designed to deliver stronger integrated billing capabilities to radiology businesses by combining two distinctly separate radiology information and accounting applications into one system. Medical imaging practices should be able to accelerate their payment cycle by significantly reducing many time-consuming and labor-intensive processes required to generate and receive payment of radiology-based procedures.
