Phoenix Children’s Hospital is a 433-bed freestanding children’s hospital in the American Southwest city of Phoenix, Ariz.  Phoenix was the second most rapidly growing U.S. city in 2018. This growth, anticipated by leaders at Phoenix Children’s Hospital inspired plans to update the radiology department and hospital monitoring systems to be prepared for the demands of the growing population of children and the clinical demands for improving efficiency in all facets of workflow and patient care.

In the Spring of 2017, Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Philips Healthcare entered into a long-term relationship, reinforcing what had been a friendly working association into a true partnership. One of the most important upgrades to the Phoenix Children’s radiology service since the inauguration of our partnership has been implementation of Philips IntelliSpace PACS. Challenges along the way, implementing a new research PACS, concerns over loss of image data and most critically, unexpected delays in image migration revealed the most important aspect of our partnership. True partnership enables a level of openness in our critique when delays occurred, constructive conversations about problem solving and a unified team working to creative and strategic solutions.

Replacing a PACS system is no easy feat. In this webinar, learn how Phoenix Children's Hospital worked hand-in-hand with their partners to work toward the mutual goal of improving care of children.



Dianna M. E. Bardo, M.D.
Vice Chair of Radiology for Clinical Development
Phoenix Children’s Hospital

Bardo is vice chair of radiology for clinical development at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. In this role Bardo works to further develop Radiographic services through technical innovation within the department and through outreach to other departments and throughout the community. Building on a traditional approach to imaging care of infants, children and adults with congenital and chronic childhood diseases Dr. Bardo and her team rely upon collaborative clinical and research interests  to guide advanced imaging care. Of particular interest is physiologic imaging of the heart including myocardial perfusion and assessment of intravascular blood flow in the coronary arteries and major cardiothoracic vessels. These interests have led to development of research and clinical study of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and fractional flow reserve (FFR) in the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children's Hospital.


Richard N. Southard, M.D.
Vice Chair of Radiology Clinical Operations
Phoenix Children’s Hospital

Dr. Southard is vice chair of radiology clinical operations, director of CT and cardiac imaging at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.  He and his team oversee the daily operations of the imaging department to insure delivery of the best possible care for patients and families in a child-friendly environment and efficient, clinician responsive manner.
