NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C., Nov. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As a Critical Access Hospital looking to replace their existing RIS/PACS, West Feliciana Parish Hospital (WFPH) required an efficient solution that provides enterprise-wide access to imaging and patient content while supporting the capability to deal with modern standards required by meaningful use. They found that most RIS/PACS vendors did not support EHR standards and had not achieved inpatient EHR Certification. However, as a true EHR for Radiology, Avreo interWORKS not only provided the workflow and ease of use, but also achieved complete EHR Certification by meeting the new medical standards associated with Meaningful Use1. Not only did WFPH find exactly what they were looking for in a RIS/PACS solution, but they were also impressed with Avreo's true web-based solution, granting them access to patient information anywhere without Java, Active X, or third party utilities.
"The West Feliciana Parish Hospital Imaging department is pleased to partner with the Avreo interWORKS system for our Critical Access Hospital," stated Dakisha Bryant, Director of Imaging. "interWORKS has allowed the Imaging department to improve efficiency and access to patient information. We are currently working on a complete interface that will give physicians access to patient exams as well as final reports from our enterprise EHR. After experiencing a server crash with our previous RIS/PACS vendor, Avreo has worked diligently to help us convert to their system as well as retrieve our previous studies. Although our workflow is complex, Avreo was able to customize a workflow to fit our situation quickly."
