“This working relationship has been very fruitful and we are proud to help streamline care for neighbors through this technological integration with T-System,” said Houman Farzian, CEO of XtreMed.
HOUSTON, TEXAS (PRWEB)
March 28, 2016
XtreMed, a turnkey medical imaging provider, today announced the successful integration of its seamless radiology solution with T-System’s Emergency Services Information System (EDIS) at Neighbors Emergency Center, one of the largest networks of autonomous emergency centers (FSECs) in the United States.
The Neighbors Emergency Center is expected to provide care to more than 75,000 patients per year in more than 20 centers. With the intention of opening centers in the United States this year, Neighbors sought technology providers capable of supporting their exponential growth. Since integrating the two technologies of XtreMed and T-System, Neighbors Emergency Center has reported improved clinical workflow, efficiency and patient care.
“When it comes to the unique dynamics of emergency care, having radiological information at your fingertips is incredibly valuable,” said Lauren Cotton, RN, CEN, MS, chief nurse at Neighbors Emergency Center. “Our clinical team can access an X-ray image directly in T-System instead of having to work between two systems, which would have a huge negative impact on our workflow and efficiency. “
XtreMed and T-System worked to ensure that the technologies were seamlessly integrated so that images from the radiology equipment were automatically sent to T-System’s EDIS, EV ™ and accessible at the point of care.
“Prior to integration with T-System, we encountered difficulties when attempting to integrate with other EDIS vendors. We found that most vendors were unable to provide the support and communication necessary for a successful integration, ”said Houman Farzian, CEO of XtreMed. “It has been a very successful working relationship and we are proud to help streamline care for neighbors through this technological integration with T-System.”
“We believe in providing clinicians with the tools they need to provide the best possible patient care,” said Robert Hitchcock, MD, FACEP, director of strategy at T-System. “I think this successful integration with XtreMed really shows the remarkable results that can be achieved when healthcare technology providers work together and stay focused on what’s best for the patient.
XtreMed is a radiology and medical imaging solutions provider based in Houston, Texas. Since the inception of the FSEC marketplace, XtreMed has completed over 250 modality installations and 20 full radiological suite projects and currently provides modality technical support and maintenance to over 40 FSECs nationwide.
