Tulsa Clinic Converts from Film to Digital Workflow


July 7, 2010 — A large multi-physician clinic in Tulsa, Okla., recently purchased a new picture archiving and communication system (PACS) and digital radiography system as part of its transition from film to digital. The Indian Health Care Resource Center (IHCRC), which provides health care to the Tulsa American Indian community, bought a Carestream RIS/PACS and a DirectView DR 7500 Digital Radiography System in order to achieve more responsive patient care and higher staff productivity.

The center is converting from film and paper to an all-digital workflow as part of an expansion that will nearly double the size of the main clinic to 52,000 square feet. IHCRC houses 130 healthcare professionals including 47 licensed providers comprised of physicians, dentists, optometrists, dieticians, psychologists, social workers and others that handle more than 100,000 patient visits a year.

“The new digital imaging system and RIS/PACS will allow us to improve our on-site workflow and communicate electronically with remote radiologists,” said Carmelita Skeeter, Chief Executive Officer of the IHCRC. “Imaging studies can be easily accessed at on-site workstations and radiology reports will be available within a day instead of the lengthy process required to courier film images.”

A DR 7500 system provides high-resolution images in seconds, speeding the exam process and eliminating the delay required to process film. In the past, film studies from the center would be driven across town each day for reading. Now digital imaging studies and radiology reports will be communicated electronically.
