CASE STUDY: RadConnect helps Ethiopian hospital thrive

Dive into our case study below to learn how our cloud based medical imaging management solution, RadConnect, helped solve incompatibility and disparate systems issues for Soddo Christian Hospital.

Soddo Christian Hospital boasts the only CT scanner in the entire southern half of Ethiopia, creating a massive and on-going reliance for scans and interpretation. Unfortunately, its lone part-time radiologist could not manage the full-time patient load, which led to an agreement with the University of Alabama to help with offsite reads. Soddo Christian Hospital first tried Dropbox, but the process was extremely cumbersome. Installing a remote DICOM archive through a VPN eliminated the security issue, but the burden on techs remained. Bottom line, it was slow, finicky, and extremely unreliable.

The radiology department at Soddo Christian Hospital frequently required IT consultation from both institutions on a system riddled with network errors, timeouts, or overloads. All of these problems led to many times where radiology reporting was delayed by one or more days causing patient hardship, especially for those who had traveled some distance for their study and were forced to stay in a local hotel until they could return home with their radiology report.

Our RadConnect solution fixed all of these problems. In less than two hours the RadConnect system was up and runningĀ — start to finish. Read more on this simple, intuitive solution by clicking the link below.
