Going live with any new product can be a challenge. At the time a five-hospital health system with numerous imaging centers, WellStar took on this challenge in a most ambitious way, going live with PowerScribe 360 at all locations on the same day. Carol Scoggins, System Executive Director, Diagnostic Outreach, is proud to say not only did they go live on the same day, but they were “pleasantly surprised at how quickly the radiologists were self-editing.” Within the first month, they were at an 88.7% self-edit rate, a level they had not expected to achieve until the six-month point. The subspecialists fully embraced PowerScribe 360, creating global templates for the other 50+ radiologists for more efficient, standardized reporting. Carol says, “We are very pleased with the adoption by the radiologists. It’s been very positive.”
