Philips has signed an eight-year iSite PACS expansion deal with OrthoCarolina, one of the orthopedic practices in the nation. The commitment is an extension of a current relationship between Philips and OrthoCarolina.
OrthoCarolina first chose the scalable Philips iSite PACS solution in 2006 as the practice looked for a way to better manage its complex system of locations. iSite PACS’s fee-per-study model allowed OrthoCarolina the flexibility to grow its PACS system as it began to convert each location from analog to digital radiography (DR). After reporting a positive initial experience with iSite PACS, OrthoCarolina continues to see Philips as its vendor of choice while entering the final phase of its conversion to DR.
Our physicians regularly travel among our 16 offices and need access to images taken at any of our locations, said Steve Hendrick, chief information officer of OrthoCarolina. With iSite PACS’ ability to distribute across the enterprise, our physicians are able to pull up images at our satellite offices from our server downtown in seconds and better serve our patients. Renewing our partnership with Philips was a logical extension of our relationship and iSite PACS continues to meet the growing needs of OrthoCarolina’s more than 70 physicians.
