Louisiana State University (LSU) Health System in Baton Rouge is deploying an integrated radiology information system (RIS), diagnostic reporting system and PACS from United Kingdom-based GE Healthcare.
Through the implementation, the Health System looks to create a filmless and paperless central database and radiology image repository for securely sharing patient imaging data throughout the enterprise, according to the company.
The roll-out of GE Centricity RIS/PACS will begin later this month, and is expected to be live at all 10 of LSU’s 10 hospitals within a year. The implementation will supplement LSU’s Health Information Exchange (LSU-HIE), which will enable all LSU patient records to be available at any hospital in the system, says the company. When the LSU-HIE goes online this fall, LSU will have the first statewide health information exchange in Louisiana.
