April 13, 2017 — IDS recently announced Women’s Imaging Associates, a premier teleradiology firm located in Birmingham, Ala., has implemented AbbaDox RIS (radiology information system) including its speech recognition and reporting platform. The system is now live, supporting a full range of screening and diagnostic imaging services the group performs for nearly two dozen healthcare delivery organizations throughout the United States including hospitals, radiology groups and outpatient centers.
Women’s Imaging Associates president and founder Caroline Reich, M.D., Ph.D., opened the practice in 2009 to provide first-class women’s imaging services with the interpretation of 2-D and 3-D mammography, breast ultrasound, breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), obstetrical and pelvic ultrasound. She is joined by two board-certified radiologists, also breast imaging experts.
Reich had a desire to upgrade her reporting system, which was no longer a good match for her bourgeoning practice. “Technology is an integral component when providing top-quality imaging services,” said Reich. “Click fatigue was setting in, and I longed for more progressive information technology to help me work more efficiently and address new industry guidelines while preserving our high standards of service. With the right technology, I can deliver a consistently high level of service including the delivery of accurate results in the timeliest method.
“We sought an application provider that was innovative and flexible but, more importantly, one that was willing to develop a best-of-breed, comprehensive solution for mammography, breast and women’s imaging services. IDS listened and delivered my ideal solution,” said Reich.
