The New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center, Manhattan: a 1,242-licensed bed voluntary non-profit hospital. PROBLEM: Conventional imaging technology created expensive logistical problems between the radiology facility and the Greenberg Pavilion, a new 850,000 square foot, 11-floor inpatient tower, located two city blocks away. SOLUTION: Use a picture archiving communications system (PACS) to transmit, store and archive digital images. RESULTS: Increased staff efficiencies, improved patient care and reduced costs. KEYS TO SUCCESS: "Many years of planning and a full commitment from the staff."
