Midwest Advanced Radiology Center (MRAD), an outpatient imaging facility with two locations in the Chicago area, has implemented a range of solutions from eRAD, a subsidiary of RadNet, to improve business and clinical workflow.

MRAD installed eRAD’s RIS, PACS, Integrated Speech Recognition, Mammography Module, and RADAR, its tool for clinical communication. The facility was seeking a flexible platform that would reduce the complexity involved in sharing patient data across multiple sites and satisfy Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements.

“Our previous system wasn’t web-based, and it didn’t have speech recognition. I had to assemble an interface to a third-party system,” said John Saldanha, president of MRAD. “It’s like comparing apples and oranges. Other systems didn’t come close to eRAD’s feature set. Everything is seamless now. All components are connected and talk to each other, so we can process information in an expeditious way.”
