Gabriele Monasterio Foundation (Italy) transforms Healthcare Delivery with J4Care PACS
Fondazione Toscana Gabriele Monasterio, in close cooperation with J4care GmbH, has successfully implemented the latest J4Care SMooTH PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) solution. This has revolutionized the foundation’s imaging capabilities and transformed its healthcare delivery. With the installation of the new SMooTH PACS system, the foundation has taken a major step towards improving the efficiency of its healthcare services.
Paolo Marcheschi, Head of PACS Research and ICT Development, said: “The new SMooTH PACS system installed by J4care is a state-of-the-art Picture Archiving and Communication System that is designed to revolutionize the way medical images are stored, viewed, and shared. The system is built with cutting-edge technology that ensures faster and more efficient image retrieval, secure data storage, and seamless communication between healthcare providers.”
Since the installation of the new PACS system, the Gabriele Monasterio Foundation has seen a significant improvement in the efficiency of its healthcare services. The system has enabled healthcare providers to quickly and easily access and analyze medical images, resulting in faster and more accurate diagnoses. This has led to improved patient outcomes and a higher level of patient satisfaction. It has also helped the Gabriele Monasterio Foundation streamline its workflows and reduce the time and resources required to manage medical images. Radiologists and clinicians were able to promptly retrieve and assess patient studies, resulting in quicker diagnoses, improved collaboration, decreased turnaround times, and better patient treatment.
Marcel Swennenhuis, COO at J4Care GmbH: “It was, and is, a great pleasure to work with the Gabriele Monasterio Foundation’s team. We were able to implement the entire system remotely and had very good and direct online communications.
