Replacing PACS and the Benefits of Enterprise Partnership in a Pediatric Hospital

Originally Aired: March 20, 2019

This webinar is supported by an educational grant from Philips Healthcare

Overview

Phoenix Children’s Hospital is a 433 bed freestanding children’s hospital in the American Southwest city of Phoenix, AZ. Phoenix was the second most rapidly growing US city in 2018. This growth, anticipated by leaders at Phoenix Children’s Hospital inspired plans to update the Radiology department and hospital monitoring systems to be prepared for the demands of the growing population of children and the clinical demands for improving efficiency in all facets of workflow and patient care.

In the Spring of 2017, Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Philips Healthcare entered into a long-term relationship, reinforcing what had been a friendly working association into a true partnership. One of the most important upgrades to the Phoenix Children’s radiology service since the inauguration of our partnership has been implementation of Philips IntelliSpace PACS. Challenges along the way, implementing a new research PACS, concerns over loss of image data and most critically, unexpected delays in image migration revealed the most important aspect of our partnership. True partnership enables a level of openness in our critique when delays occurred, constructive conversations about problem solving and a unified team working to creative and strategic solutions.

Replacing a PACS system is no easy feat. In this webinar, learn how Phoenix Children's Hospital worked hand-in-hand with their partners to work toward the mutual goal of improving care of children.
