Seattle Radiologists APC, in operation for more than 45 years, is a large regional radiology group based in Seattle, Washington providing innovative diagnostic outpatient imaging services to hospitals, clinics and physician practices throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Healthcare Interfacing Challenges

Seattle Radiologists needed a stable integration platform that would enable them to integrate disparate applications within their IT infrastructure and eliminate costly point-to-point connections. In addition, they required more control and better monitoring capabilities over their entire integrated environment enabling them implement interfaces within their timelines and proactively monitor and address any connection issues in the orders-to-results cycle. Reading for a large group of referring hospitals posed a need for efficient EMR and EHR connectivity with varying hospital EMR or RIS systems to eliminate manual steps and automate data exchanges.

Customer Solution

To surmount the challenges of a point-to-point application environment and manual processes that hindered productivity, Seattle Radiologists implemented Corepoint Integration Engine.

With a more integrated workflow, Seattle Radiologists was able to configure, test, deploy, and proactively troubleshoot interfaces, as needed, according to their timeframes and with the independence from other vendors. Corepoint Integration Engine help set the stage for Seattle Radiologists to implement an enterprise-wide worklist solution to enhance radiologist productivity, and dynamically organize readings to effectively leverage radiologist expertise.

Overall, implementing Corepoint Integration Engine has provided a new level of confidence in connecting efficiently with internal systems and referring physicians and hospitals.
