Another challenge on the implementation was the 10 plus years of data that had been captured in the mammography information system that was currently in place at MemorialCare. A vital part of any implementation of a new system is leveraging all of the previous data. MagView was able to convert all the patient history, demographics and prior patient reports so that when MemorialCare went live with their system nothing fell through the cracks and the physicians could reference past patient clinical data when reporting on new findings.
While today’s health care environment is focused on dedicated sub specialty health care, Levine feels that same approach should be taken with the information systems. By taking the best that each product does and integrating them into one integrated system it gives a true best-of-breed solution. “This allows us to deliver the very best in patient care, and the most efficient and effective system for radiologists, technologists and our breast imaging workflow.”
