FreedomPACS Solves Radiology Image Access Challenges for 500 Ordering Physicians at a Michigan Outpatient Center

Premier MRI/CT Streamlines Image Access, Sharing and Storage with Secure, Cost-Effective Cloud Technology

SOUTHFIELD, MICH. Ever since Premier MRI/CT implemented the web-based medical imaging solutions of FreedomPACS™, the multi-location outpatient center has experienced significantly improved workflow, patient care and savings.

The benefits experienced by Premier, which serves thousand of patients each year in the tri-county area near Detroit, are detailed in the latest FreedomPACS case study.

With cloud storage, ImageShare technology and on-site radiology PACS, Premier has virtually eliminated its former medical image access challenges experienced by patients and the center’s nearly 500 ordering physicians.

For example, Premier no longer has to rely on cumbersome physical records and outdated CDs to store and share X-rays, MRAs, CTs and MRIs with patients and their primary care physicians or specialists.

“With so many locations geographically, moving around physical records was problematic. It was impractical for the amount of volume we have and the number of patients we see,” explained Gary Wood, director of Premier MRI/CT.

 “FreedomPACS is much easier, less frustrating to outside doctors, and more affordable than the image sharing solutions I used during my 28 years on the hospital side of radiology,” Wood said.

More specifically, FreedomPACS has helped Premier to:

“With FreedomPACS, we are able to operate an imaging center that has multiple sites and manage our images so that they are readily accessible, secure and backed up,” Wood shared.

FreedomPACS also enables us to archive our images across multiple sites—efficiently, inexpensively and with quick access to images regardless of where our doctors might be located. ImageShare is a great benefit as it allows us to connect our external physicians securely so that they can see their patients’ exams,” he added.
