Ochsner Health System

Ochsner Health System was looking for an enterprise imaging partner who could grow with them as quickly as they were growing themselves. As they were expanding to help serve more people in Louisiana, they found themselves migrating data and images two or three times a year.

“We really needed someone who could grow with us, who had flexibility, who had the technical infrastructure to help us,” said Ashley Clary, Vice President of Imaging Service,”. . . so that was Canon Medical for us.”

TeleDiag is one of the first open cooperative telemedicine networks, supporting over 100 institutions across France. Created in 2008, TeleDiag was designed around the goal to help private and hospital practitioners be more effective in their roles with remote radiology offerings, including on-call care.

The Challenge
TeleDiag was looking for an enterprise imaging solution to be a centralized network among their connected providers, radiologists and institutions. They were looking for a partner who could handle their volume and growth, with over 350 radiologists and 110 public institutions. TeleDiag was seeing over 250,000 exams per year, with a goal of growing to over 360,000 exams per year within two years.

Why Canon Medical?
To ensure their continued success and growth, TeleDiag needed a partner who had an established brand among the radiologist market. TeleDiag selected Canon Medical’s Enterprise Imaging solution for their product recognition, user experience and adaptability. For years, TeleDiag had adopted Vitrea’s web-based Diagnostic Viewer so transitioning to a full suite of Vitrea products was an easy adoption.

Because of the high product familiarity with Canon Medical, TeleDiag was able to roll out tools quickly to newly added institutions as they joined the TeleDiag network. New providers were able to have access to comprehensive tools and operate on the same level as their previous institution’s internal tools.

King Edward VII’s Hospital

King Edward Vll’s Hospital is a prestigious private hospital in London with a long history of providing care to the British royal family. It is the only hospital in the UK where consultants must be invited to practice. Known for its use of state-of-the-art technologies and a highly credentialed medical staff, the Hospital enjoys a reputation as the “foremost private hospital” in London.

The Challenge
King Edward VII’s Hospital had an aging PACS that was performing poorly. The hospital was also challenged to provide uniform access to imaging in all service areas. When an upgrade was proposed by another vendor at high cost with no new functionality, leadership at the Hospital decided to consider other options.

Why Canon Medical?
Having had a positive business relationship with Canon Medical and Canon Medical Systems in the past, King Edward VII’s Hospital launched a tender process to look at alternatives to the current vendor. After careful review, IT, medical and administrative staff all selected Canon Medical.

Fairview Health

Fairview Health Services operates seven hospitals and over 40 primary and specialty care clinics in Minnesota, including the University of Minnesota Medical Center (UMMC) and University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital (UMMCH). Fairview needed a solution to provide consolidated access to imaging operations data currently stored in disparate systems, to help visualize departmental performance metrics.

The Challenge
Fairview’s imaging leaders faced several barriers to accessing actionable information to support their business decisions. Although the reporting module built into their EMR provided some preconfigured strategic reports, the process of getting ad-hoc information to support an immediate decision was long, requiring the submission of service requests to IT and the involvement of specially trained analysts to construct new reports. Often by the time the requested information was provided, the timeframe for making a critical decision had already passed. Compounding the problem, the EMR is not the only source of operations-related information. The RIS (radiology information systems), PACS (picture archiving and communications systems) and imaging modalities themselves also contain valuable data which contribute to the overall picture.

Why Canon Medical?
Fairview worked with Canon Medical to implement Practice Management to empower the imaging leaders with self-service access to data. As part of this implementation, one year’s worth of historical data was imported into Practice Management to provide users with immediate insights into performance trends. Fairview’s implementation includes four applications: KPI Dashboard, On Demand Reporting, Scanner Utilization and Clinical Report Search.
