As part of their drive to improve patient service while reducing cost, Thibodaux Regional began evaluating the possibility of purchasing a PACS many years ago. “As part of the decision-making process we visited a NovaPACS install site in the area and participated in a hands-on product demonstration,” said Camile Richard, director of radiology at Thibodaux Regional Medical Center. “We were sold on the system following the demo, but the affordable pricing, proven track record, and the training services offered as part of the package made NovaPACS the clear choice for our facility.”

Prior to using NovaPACS, the time lapse between developing the image to diagnosis was problematic. Exams were printed on film, manually compiled with any previous studies performed on the patient, and then hand carried by technologists to the radiologists for interpretation. The entire course of action usually took several hours resulting in diagnosis delays.
In addition to providing faster diagnostics to advance patient care, Thibodaux Regional is saving money. A Six Sigma project demonstrated that the facility’s film costs were $220,000 per year; in addition, its film processor chemical costs were $15,000. The monthly fee for the NovaPACS system is less than 50 percent of Thibodaux’s prior film budget.
