New RoentgenWorks RIS Brings EMR Functionality to Radiology IT

DALLAS, TX and ORLANDO, FL, February 21, 2011 – BRIT Systems, Inc., introduced today the company’s latest addition to the 100% Browser-based RoentgenWorks radiology information technology (IT) solution at the Healthcare Information & Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual meeting. RoentgenWorks RIS is the final component to a fully integrated, modular Web-based PACS/RIS with a vendor neutral archive (VNA), bi-directional HL-7 gateway, critical results and ER discordance reporting, voice recognition with structured reporting, and an iPad application for viewing images, reports and other patient information.

RoentgenWorks RIS brings EMR functionality to radiology patient information management — including scheduling and computerized physician order entry — in a 100% Browser-based environment.  The system, part of the modular RoentgenWorks family of radiology IT products, integrates seamlessly with existing systems (PACS, EMRs) and/or HIE NHIN Gateways.

“RoentgenWorks RIS is built around the concept that radiology groups and clinics will need to implement technology to fulfill meaningful use – yet they shouldn’t have to replace existing, functioning systems,” says Shelly Fisher, President, BRIT Systems. “Medical images are an essential component of the patient’s medical record.  With the addition of exclusion criteria for physician specialties in the final meaningful use rules, radiology groups can implement – and pay for – only the modules they are required to use. This presents a clear opportunity for radiology groups to demonstrate they are “meaningful users” of EHRs and qualify for federal funding.”  Ms. Fisher also noted that the patient discovery and NHIN Gateway tools position RoentgenWorks RIS for Stage 2 of meaningful use where communication of patient information between systems will likely be required.

Several RIS features enhance efficiency, such as: one click access to patient and physician contact information; creating a patient record and order from within the schedule, ease of rescheduling; and DICOM modality worklist support.  Patient management is streamlined with full procedure code management with mapping to modalities, access to the entire patient record including contact information, and the ability to import patient information from a Continuity of Care Record (CCR) or Continuity of Care Document (CCD).

BRIT Systems will showcase RoentgenWorks RIS in booth 3580 at the HIMSS annual meeting.
