Capital Healthcare Solutions Adds Florida Installation
August 21, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsDiagnostic Cardiology Associates of Jacksonville, FL has chosen a new CVIS in CardioDx.
"We needed a system that would link all our offices into one database while standardizing our diagnostic reporting" said Amy Potts, Director of Diagnostic Testing for DCA.
David Giles President of Capital stated "one of the first areas in the workflow we knew we could help DCA was reducing their average report turn time from what it was to same day. In their first three weeks of use they went from over 60% of their studies left over daily to less than 30% and now they are down to less than 10% at the end of each day."
The entire diagnostic workflow has been automated. Through an HL7 interface all the patient demographics and referring physician data is imported directly into CardioDx. When the reading doctor signs the report it is automatically faxed to the referring physician, the charges are pushed into the billing system and a copy of the final report will be inserted into the EMR.
"When we found out we were going to lose our transcription provider we immediately began looking for a digital replacement. We needed something right away and chose to go with the CardioDx CVIS for reporting and will be adding Capital's CardioPx for imaging in the near future. One of the biggest surprises uncovered during our search was when we realized that the cost of the software would be less than what we were paying annually for diagnostic transcription and knowing the real impact will be seen in year two forward when our only cost will be annual maintenance" said Potts.
