At Netcare Pholoso Hospital in Polokwane, the radiology department has based its delivery model on the medavis’ Radiology Information System (RIS), making a strong statement about the hospital’s strategy of combining cutting edge medical technology with skilled and experienced specialists to provide exceptional care for patients and their families.

This investment increases the speed and efficiency of workflows to patient care and gives clinicians full access to their reports.

The RIS is used by the department’s radiologists processes the images and data from up to 80 patient appointments per day. It has an interface with the hospital’s PACS. As a green-field site, the department was actually the first in South Africa to implement the medavis RIS.
