New features in RamSoft’s PowerServer RIS/PACS 5.0 Further Highlight Advantages of Single-Platform RIS/PACS Technology

(Toronto, Ontario, Canada – November 23, 2010) RamSoft is set to introduce the latest developments in the 5.0 version of their PowerServer RIS/PACS software at RSNA 2010. The new features found in PowerServer RIS/PACS 5.0, were added strategically to make paperless workflow even more efficient than before regardless of the clinical environment. These latest, must-have features were added to PowerServer RIS/PACS platform after evaluating customer recommendations and examining needs across the industry.

One highly requested feature was the ability to quickly communicate important patient information to the entire enterprise or to specific members of the workflow that may include remote radiologists – a feature that is only possible on a single platform RIS/PACS. To do this, we added Patient Alert Pop-Ups. These alerts can be easily setup from the Patient Demographics screen and each time the patient record or patient study is opened all relevant alerts will pop up. There is no limit to the number of alerts than can be assigned to each patient and they can be setup to open for specific lengths of time or to run indefinitely. Patient Alert Pop-ups are especially useful, for example, in ensuring allergy information is communicated to the technologists before any contrast agents are administered.

Enhancements were also made to our Zero Download Referring Physician Portal to improve the Referring Physician experience. RamSoft understands that a doctor’s time is valuable and it should not be spent searching for patient reports or waiting for faxes to arrive. To eliminate this burden, we’ve added an All Reports Tab to in the Referring Physician Portal so all prior reports are at their finger tips and available the moment the final report is signed.

RamSoft has also added features to PowerServer RIS/PACS 5.0 to help imaging facilities manage their business. The Physician Specialty Option in the User List allows management to track both referring physicians and reading radiologists by specialty, which is helpful in all aspects of marketing and in identifying ways for providers to grow their business. Another helpful feature that improves business practices is the addition of Self-Pay Fee Schedules. Staff no longer has to search through a list to determine the appropriate price for the patient’s procedure. Managers no longer have to manage extensive Excel sheets that need to be updated and distributed on a regular basis. Now, when a fee schedule changes, simply log into the PowerServer RIS/PACS, make the necessary changes and the new pricing structure is automatically made available to appropriate staff members. This new addition improves customer service and streamlines billing procedures because it eliminates the manual process of calculating discounted prices for cash patients. Lastly, the newly added Block Time Entry is an intuitive feature that allows management or users that have appropriate rights to block time entry of modalities and multiple facilities for hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly blocking all from one screen.

“The new features in PowerServer RIS/PACS 5.0, were determined after careful analysis of client recommendations,” says Vijay Ramanathan, President and CEO of RamSoft. “Our goal is to continually improve our customers’ workflow and provide our customers with a competitive advantage to thrive in these challenging times.”
