Arizona’s Yuma Regional Medical Center Selects Mach7 Technologies to Power New Enterprise Imaging Strategy
Using Mach7 Enterprise Imaging Platform, Yuma Regional Medical Center eliminates traditional PACS, fueling interoperability and enterprise-wide collaboration
Burlington, VT and RSNA Chicago, IL – November 30, 2015 –
Yuma Regional Medical Center (YRMC) selected Mach7 Technologies’ award-winning medical image management solution to power an enterprise-wide imaging strategy. Mach7 Enterprise Imaging Platform forms the foundation of YRMC’s strategy to control imaging enterprise-wide, improve interoperability and eliminate bottlenecks created by existing PACS.
Yuma Regional Medical Center adopted the Mach7 platform to eliminate image acquisition and distribution wait times that had crippled their former PACS-centric workflow. The standards-based architecture of Mach7’s platform provides enhanced integration and access to all medical imaging data across departments, facilities, and geographies.
“Our primary focus when evaluating any information technology solution is providing exceptional care for patients,” said Fred Peet, CIO, Yuma Regional Medical Center. “We knew we needed an enterprise imaging solution that aligned with our broader strategies to meet the needs of providers and patients. Mach7 not only delivered on our requirements but exceeded our expectations. The Mach7 team has worked closely with us and provided the foundation upon which we can achieve our enterprise imaging goals and deliver world-class patient care.”
YRMC brings more departments under enterprise imaging umbrella.
Yuma Regional Medical Center will further enhance patient care delivery by expanding image management beyond radiology and cardiology. Future imaging from pathology, wound care and ophthalmology will be evaluated to be seamlessly accessed in a single patient record. Mach7’s platform also enables image and information sharing with caregivers outside of Yuma’s enterprise, further enhancing care delivery efficiency.
