New Study Finds Online Collaboration Tools Reduce Administrative Work for Physical Therapists and Other Medical Providers


Tucson, Arizona (PRWEB) June 04, 2013

A new case study by online collaboration provider BizAnytime demonstrates the value of a comprehensive communications suite in improving communications and efficiencies for physical therapy offices. The case study outlines the benefits of incorporating BizAnytime’s exclusive array of communication and collaboration tools in the clinical setting. By creating a shared online environment for practices that includes workspaces, file sharing and instant chat capability, BizAnytime was able to provide new avenues for rapid communication and cooperation in this fast-paced working environment. The entire case study can be viewed online at http://www.bizanytime.com/desert-palms-physical-therapy.

Desert Palms Physical Therapy provides active and passive treatments to help patients recover from a wide range of injuries and conditions. Because therapists spend the bulk of their time working directly with patients, it was critical to find new and innovative ways to increase communication among staff members and patients to promote healing, reduce duplicated effort and enhance efficiency throughout the facility. To complicate matters further, the center partners with and refers patients to a second office location, introducing additional communication challenges. The end result of these complexities was a breakdown in communication among staff members and a failure to respond immediately to patient inquiries and concerns within the clinical environment.

The founder of Desert Palms Physical Therapy, Bruce A. Franke, Jr., PT, MSc., OCS, MTC and FAAOMPT had read about BizAnytime and its exclusive portfolio of cloud-based collaboration and communications tools. Franke contacted BizAnytime to arrange for a free trial for his clinic. By setting up workspaces for each of his therapists, Franke was able to provide a greater degree of organization and to facilitate communication between therapists within the clinic. Instant chat functions ensured that workloads could be distributed and managed more efficiently in the working environment.

Since implementing BizAnytime weve seen the time the staff spends on sending communications and questions between offices decrease by at least 30 percent said Franke.

The successful implementation described in the case study is not an isolated case. BizAnytime helps virtually any type of small business achieve improved communications and increased collaboration to boost productivity in the workplace. Shared workspaces and advanced social media integration allow staff members to communicate quickly and effectively with each other and with clients through BizAnytime’s secure cloud interface. Priced at only $ 10/month, BizAnytime reduces overall office expenses..

The BizAnytime cloud-based collaboration system provides advanced tools for project management and cooperation among colleagues, clients and vendors. The company offers a range of services that include the following:


Shared workspaces
Project and task management tools
Ongoing discussion feeds

Official Launch of image32: A Fast, Simple, and Secure Way to Share Medical Images


Menlo Park, California (PRWEB) April 17, 2013

The Problem

Medical imaging studies like CT scans and MRIs are often trapped in the silos of imaging centers, hospitals, and clinics, requiring patients to physically move their imaging studies around using CDs. The lack of easy-to-use solutions to exchange medical images has led to a serious problem of unnecessary repeat imaging studies – 10-20% of studies in the U.S. may be unnecessary repeats. This costs billions of dollars each year in the U.S. and often causes patients to have additional exposure to harmful radiation.

A New Approach to Medical Image Sharing

The launch of image32 represents a new era in medical image sharingdoctors can now quickly share medical imaging studies with their colleagues anywhere in the world. image32s patent-pending system automatically strips out protected health information (PHI), keeping only non-PHI study identifiers and the images themselves. This approach allows doctors to share studies to obtain curbside consultations and expedite patient transfers, all without having to worry about unintentionally revealing identifying patient information.

A Doctor and Patient-Centered Approach

My co-founder Dr. Alex Flint originally wanted to find a web-based image sharing product that could be used for curbside consultations, patient transfers, and second opinions, said Bob Pellican, co-founder and CEO of image32. When he didnt find any products out there that he could try, buy, and easily use, we decided to build image32. We are really proud of how accessible and easy-to-use image32 is, and we are looking forward to expanding our platform to let doctors and patients interact using shared medical imaging studies.

We built image32 to address an important need that doctors and patients have, the need to quickly and easily share medical imaging studies between different facilities, said Dr. Alexander Flint, co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of image32. We hope that by making communication of imaging studies as easy as possible, we will help improve patient care and help reduce unnecessary repeat imaging studies.

Collaboration over Medical Images

Our patent-pending technology also lets multiple doctors collaborate over a medical imaging study in real-time, said Dr. Flint. Many doctors can view a study at the same time, with each doctor looking at the original images loaded into their browser. The doctors then use interactive features like scrolling and window control plus synchronization of cursor position to have a more immediate exchange of information and a more fluid clinical conversation.

Enterprise-Grade Software at Consumer Prices

Because image32 uses modern web standards and highly efficient cloud computing infrastructure, it is priced very aggressively, with individual doctors and small clinics in mind. Viewing accounts will always be free, and our entry-level account that lets a doctor upload up to 20 studies per month is priced at $ 20/month for an annual subscription.

About image32

image32 (https://www.image32.com/) is the worlds first doctor and patient-centered medical image sharing system. image32 allows individual doctors and groups to easily share medical imaging studies across hospital and clinic boundaries to facilitate curbside consultations and expedite patient transfers. image32 is designed in Menlo Park, California, by Interconnect Medical, Inc.
