Technologies


Our technologies continue to evolve in order to provide our faculty, staff, students, patients, and our overall consumer access to the latest innovations.  As examples:

Most Wired . . . The Ohio State University Medical Center (OSUMC) has been named consecutively one of the country's "Most Wired" hospitals. The prestigious designation refers to the use of advanced information technology tools by the nation's hospitals to provide quality care and patient safety. Hospitals & Health Networks, the journal of the American Hospital Association, compiled a list of top 100 Most Wired hospitals based on the surveys from 1,255 hospitals.

PACS. . . OSUMC implemented a fully digital, filmless radiology system in 2001. This paperless system creates real-time access to testing results. This mature PACS environment is dedicated to setting the industry standard for filmless technology.

Order Entry. . . The computerized physician order entry (CPOE) system is a comprehensive system which allows order entry from various locations at the Medical Center.

Mobile . . . OSUMC limited staff, at the beginning of his or her training program, are provided PDA devices for mobile access and information on the go.

EResults. . . The medical center implemented in the early 1990’s reporting software  that has evolved to a completely web-based format and which allows user-friendly access.

The Wright Center of Innovation in Biomedical Imaging . . . Through a Third Frontier grant of the State of Ohio, the Wright Center was established at The Ohio State University.  The Wright Center‘s portfolio includes the latest equipment/innovations ranging from MRI to microPET/CT.

Decision Support. . . At OSU, we are currently implementing a new decision support process. All requests for imaging on patients within the OUS healthplan are reviewed according to the ACR appropriateness criteria. This ensures that patients are receiving the most optimal study for a given indication.
