Metro Imaging Achieves Meaningful Use with Digital Writing from Anoto and NextGen Healthcare
Anoto, the world leader in digital writing technology, and NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, LLC today announced that Metro Imaging has deployed their joint solution, NextPenacross its five locations throughout St. Louis to increase practice efficiencies and achieve meaningful use.
Metro Imaging is a full-service imaging center, providing "open" non-claustrophobic MRI, computed tomography, ultrasonography, digital mammography, bone density, fluoroscopy and digital radiography. They have five locations in the greater St. Louis area, with offices in South County, West County, North County, St. Peters and Richmond Heights. The organization conducts upwards of 100,000 exams per year and uses more than 1,000 new patient forms per day for both health history and consent.
Metro Imaging partnered with GBS the largest NextGen Healthcare reseller in the country. With more than a decade of experience implementing and supporting NextGen solutions, GBS worked closely with Metro Imaging to get the solution up and running. GBS was onsite and key throughout the process to deploy NextPen across all five locations. Their experience and time spent on the development and training side of the project resulted in a trouble-free implementation process for Metro Imaging.
By leveraging a digital writing solution, Metro Imaging can immediately import relevant structured data directly into their NextGen Ambulatory EHR, resulting in increased practice efficiency and improved flexibility to handle high patient volumes and expedited administrative tasks that ultimately deliver better patient care.
