MOUNT BRYDGES, Ontario, Oct. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- RedRick Technologies, a provider of ergonomic radiology furniture, monitor mounting solutions and reading room design guidance, is helping Texas Children's Hospital's Department of Pediatric Radiology realize their vision of a reading room "ballroom concept." RedRick Technologies provided ergonomic design guidance and radiologist reading workstations that are facilitating productivity, clinical collaboration and teaching.
Dr. George Bisset, radiologist-in-chief and Edward B. Singleton Chair of Pediatric Radiology at Texas Children's Hospital, in Houston has led the charge to implement his radiology "Ballroom" vision. This involved consolidating a variety of radiology subspecialists into a single, centralized location. "My goal is to facilitate radiology department productivity through efficient interactions among our staff, and with referring clinicians, by addressing common challenges affecting larger, more distributed organizations," notes Bisset. "RedRick Technologies helped us realize we could not achieve these goals without optimizing reading room space utilization, lighting, sound control and ergonomics.
RedRick Technologies partnered with the cross-functional planning team to ensure the final design plans addressed radiology staff concerns about noise control and lighting, in addition to providing the ergonomic workspaces. "Our goal is to supplement the expertise of the architectural and facilities planning team," says Greg Patrick, President of RedRick Technologies. "Because we focus on reading room environments, we understand radiologists unique work requirements and how good ergonomic principles should manifest themselves across the reading room design continuum."
Bisset feels the new reading environment is helping his staff to achieve their productivity goals and provide a more consultative service. "The new reading room creates an environment that allows the radiologists' expertise to be conveyed effectively without the fatigue often caused by repeated and unintended interruptions. Efficient interactions between radiology staff and the clinical specialists are giving rise to ad-hoc collaborations that are building camaraderie between physicians and benefiting clinical care."
