Redrick Technologies Releases a New White Paper Highlighting How Optimized Reading Room Environments Benefit the Shift to Value-Based Imaging
A new educational white paper has been released by RedRick Technologies, provider of custom engineered radiologist workstations and reading room designs. While much has been written about the impact of reading room ergonomics on radiologist health and productivity, there has been little discussion about the value-based benefits of optimizing the overall reading room environment and location. This white paper provides guidance to radiology leaders seeking opportunities to enhance clinical quality and customer service through improved communications, without impacting staff productivity.
Thanks to the latest upgrades to our ComfortView™ Monitor Mounting Series, adjusting monitors horizontally is easier than ever! This series can easily mount large 30” monitors such as Barco’s Coronis Fusion series without diminishing its functionality or ease of use.
RedRick is proud to be a major sponsor in this initiative at the ACR Education Center in Reston, VA. The objective of this project is to demonstrate and educate how an optimized reading environment enhances the interpretation process and benefits the physical well being of the Radiologist by optimizing both the work zone and the overall room conditions.
A recent article in Radiology Today about the benefits of good ergonomic furniture and design in the radiology reading room, highlights the increased awareness in ergonomic benefits that exists among radiologists and radiology insiders. It reviews the drivers behind these trends, which includes recent research on the topic, the Imaging 3.0 initiative by the ACR and acknowledgement on all sides
A study conducted at Emory University and recently published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR) shows that Radiologists who spend more than seven hours each day in front of a PACS workstation suffer more work-affecting musculoskeletal pain than their less sedentary colleagues, and the particular symptoms vary between men and women as well as between older and
The American College of Radiology’s Commission on Human Resources breaks down the problem and recommends ways rads can avoid some nagging Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSIs) to which they’re especially susceptible—carpal tunnel syndrome, back strain, shoulder trouble and more—in an article published online in JACR.
As ergonomics and the sit/stand desk movement become more mainstream, many radiologists are making tweaks or complete overhauls to their reading rooms. This enables radiologists to customize their work space while facilitating improved flow and collaboration with other radiologists and referring physicians. Read this article to learn about ergonomic reading rooms that have improved work flow and ergonomics for the
In this article Elizabeth Krupinski notes that properly optimizing the display and viewing conditions, and enabling radiologists to optimize their ergonomic environments, can reduce the affects of fatigue.
A recent Radiology Today magazine article reviewing the importance of radiology workplace ergonomics also highlighted a workstation design laboratory being developed by Drs. Eliot Siegel and John Mukai. The unique ergonomic challenges of this project will advance the thinking around improving radiology reading workflow and ergonomics, to the benefit of our customers.
Healthcare Design Magazine recently highlighted our work helping the Texas Children’s Hospital radiology department create a more unified department that centralized radiology services and improved clinical collaboration.
In this space, we are the only company with this specialized focus. Everything that we create is designed and built to suit our clients' needs.
Serious thought should go into selecting the right ergonomic, radiologist reading workstations. This article reviews many of the factors that should be considered, particularly if the workspaces are shared among radiologists.
Three radiology thought leaders discuss how the reading room has evolved in response to the proliferation of PACS and what next-generation reading room improvement are coming. George S. Bissett, MD, radiologist-in-chief at Texas Children’s Hospital also discusses how RedRick Technologies helped him achieve his vision for the radiology department.
RedRick Technologies president, Greg Patrick summarizes the many aspects of the radiology reading room that can be optimized to improve radiologist productivity and health.
Radiology Today contributing writer Beth Orenstein reviews the impact of digital imaging on the needs of the radiologists workspace.
