Hattiesburg Clinic Chooses Misys Healthcare Systems to Cost Effectively Manage Processes for Increased Clinical and Financial Performance

HATTIESBURG, Miss. & RALEIGH, N.C. --(Business Wire)-- Feb. 21, 2006 -- Misys Healthcare Systems, a market leader in healthcare IT, today announced that Hattiesburg Clinic has selected Misys Radiology(TM), an industry-leading radiology information system and member of the Misys Optimum(TM) family of clinical products and Web-based technologies. Hattiesburg Clinic will use Misys Radiology to improve patient care, greatly increase operational efficiency and improve system performance within the diagnostic imaging department.

Previously, the Hattiesburg Clinic used an inefficient handwritten and paper-based system resulting in disorganization and worker overload. With the implementation of Misys Radiology, the clinic will leverage the system's innovative features to revamp its daily, enterprise radiology department operations saving time, better managing information and improving the quality of care for its patients. Hattiesburg Clinic has also chosen the Misys PACS Integration Module (PIM) with plans to deploy the module to improve radiologist workflow, providing seamless communication between Misys Radiology and any PACS solution.

"We reviewed multiple options, and Misys Radiology was by far the best technology solution for our practice," said Amanda Ryals, RIS administrator at Hattiesburg Clinic. "Misys Healthcare Systems shares our community view that reducing medical errors and improving diagnostics in the patient care process is a priority. Misys Radiology will eliminate the unnecessary and repetitive steps our people have been taking for organizing patient records and digital imaging, freeing their time to do what they are trained to do best - provide care for our patients."

Instrumental in developing a broad range of patient services for a service area of more than 400,000 residents, Hattiesburg Clinic is a physician-owned group practice with more than 200 physicians representing almost every medical specialty. In addition, the clinic employs over 1,100 professional staff members. Using Misys Radiology, the 70 professionals of Hattiesburg Clinic's diagnostic imaging department will manage information and images into one user-friendly and accessible information source.

"Misys Healthcare Systems understands the conundrum our customers face of cost effectively increasing operational efficiency while improving patient care," said Richard Atkin, president of Misys Healthcare Systems' hospital systems. "Misys Healthcare Systems efficiently meets the needs of health care providers, such as Hattiesburg Clinic, by offering user-friendly solutions that are easily installed, integrated and supported allowing physicians and caregivers to better manage their healthcare networks."

More than 185 hospitals, integrated delivery networks (IDNs) and imaging centers worldwide use Misys Radiology to automate and manage patient information and digital imaging. Misys Radiology provides ACS integration with DICOM services, convenient WebView Internet access, easily accessible and comprehensive procedure history, bar code technology support, efficient image transport and tracking, and one online, centralized policies and protocols library. A comprehensive Protected Health Information (PHI) security is also included, which provides audit trails to help achieve HIPAA compliance.
