DR Systems' Customer Breast Center of Acadiana Received Federal Incentive Payment for Stage 1 Meaningful Use Attestation

DR Systems' certified cloud-based eHR System enabled Breast Center of Acadiana to successfully attest to Meaningful Use

San Diego – DR Systems, one of the most respected names in enterprise medical imaging information systems (RIS, CVIS, PACS) and the 2012 #1 ranked PACS vendor by KLAS®, announced today that its customer Breast Center of Acadiana, in Louisiana, received its federal incentive funds for successfully completing the Meaningful Use Stage 1 attestation. Breast Center of Acadiana implemented DR Systems' cloud-based eHR for Meaningful Use in August of 2012 and started meaningfully collecting data from October 1 to December 31, 2012.

Linda Rose, Administrator at Breast Center of Acadiana, shares her experiences: "We did not hire extra staff for this program. We modified our workflow and adjusted existing staff's responsibilities to make the Meaningful Use Program work. DR Systems was there every step of the way to support and guide us through this learning curve. The EHR system also comes with a personal health record (PHR) and patient engagement platform called Health Companion which is great for patients to pre-register before their appointment and communicate with their providers after their visits."

There are approximately 35,000 radiologists in the United States, but very few are participating in Meaningful Use and will forego the incentive funds. DR Systems deployed a certified cloud-based plug-in eHR for radiologists and anesthesiologists in 2012 and helped these specialists successfully attest to Meaningful Use Stage 1. DR Systems provides a highly time-sensitive opportunity for hospitals, imaging centers and radiology and anesthesiology specialists.

"The EHR Incentive Program provides a nice incentive bonus for our imaging center. It is great that we can attest and expect the bonus payment for the next 4 years," Rose expressed with excitement.
