TORONTO, July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mount Sinai Medical Center and Real Time Medical have announced a joint collaboration project to provide efficient and comprehensive teleradiology services to several New York imaging clinics. While leveraging existing technologies, Mount Sinai seeks to eliminate manual workflow steps between the institution and remote locations, unify disparate systems, and provide timely access to diagnostic reports. This project is to be accomplished with Real Time Medical's workflow management software platform: DiaShare™.
The Mount Sinai Medical Center is a recognized leader in healthcare IT. In 2012, Mount Sinai was awarded the HIMSS Enterprise Davies Award of Excellence for use of health information technology, which is a testament to the culture of health IT innovation that the institution has cultivated over the years.
"Fine-tuning clinical productivity through workflow management software is still a newer concept," said Dr. Mendelson, Director of Clinical Informatics at Mount Sinai and the co-chair for Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE). "We are pleased to collaborate with Real Time Medical as we aim to eliminate unnecessary steps that impact productivity."
Real Time Medical Co-Founder and CEO, Ian Maynard, explains that growing demand for productivity improvement and quality assurance in diagnostic imaging organizations drives the need for the company's software. "As clinical networks grow larger and more complex, we strive to help organizations and institutions overcome resulting workflow challenges and reduce overhead. We look forward to supporting Mount Sinai in their continuous efforts to drive innovation, productivity, and excellence in clinical care."
