The Benefits of Integrated RIS/PACS
at Blue Ridge HealthCare
Presented by Siemens Medical Solutions

Siemens Medical Solutions invites you to learn how Blue Ridge HealthCare has used the Siemens Cosmos integrated RIS/PACS system to help it:
  • Attract Radiologists and Referring Physicians
  • Improve Workflows
  • Improve Report Turnaround Times
  • Achieve both a Filmless and Paperless Environment
  • Increase Capacity and Patient Referrals
  • Decrease Operational Costs
  • Increase Patient and Physician Satisfaction
  • Maintain HIPAA Requirements

Additional benefits realized from the Cosmos RIS/PACS installation include an improved workflow that reduced the number of steps in the imaging process by nearly 50%, as well as a complete filmless and paperless environment achieved in the ED, by using interactive documents.

What is Blue Ridge HealthCare?
Blue Ridge HealthCare consists of two hospitals that are both affiliated with the Carolinas Medical Center.
  • Valdese Hospital (172-bed acute care facility)
  • Grace Hospital (204-bed acute care facility)

Blue Ridge personnel who will share their insights and experiences include:
  • Jamey Pennington, CIO
  • Dr. Scott Whiddon, Chairman of Radiology
  • Bobbie Malcolm, PACS Administrator
  • Ivan Vinueza, Radiology Administrator

Glimpse the Future
This symposium will also look to the near future, when this solution will be expanded to the Valdese Hospital and the Outpatient Imaging Center after a $100 million renovation and expansion project is completed. At that time, integrated voice recognition will be deployed and an enterprise-wide filmless and paperless environment will be created.
