Todd Lane, the Radiology Manager at Pioneers explains , “We needed to be able to allow our radiologists to view the scanned images from RIS in the PACS.  That way, they don’t have to go back and forth, reducing productivity.  This new interface increases the radiologist efficiency, by giving them all pertinent information about the study.  Since they do not have to access the information elsewhere, it saves them time and helps reduce the report turnaround time.”

Steve Cook, Swearingen’s Support Manager adds, “This interface allows the technologist and clerical staff to do all RIS related functions in the RIS saving them time not having to switch between applications to perform their duties.  We are so happy to have been able to help Todd and his team make the workflow a little simpler.”

Swearingen Software prides itself on our customer satisfaction and the ability to create custom solutions to meet our customers’ needs. We are proud to have Pioneers as one of our loyal customers!
