RIC - Monroe County Medical Center


Diagnostic testing is at the center of the diagnosis or detection of disease. It is commonly utilized to assist with decisions concerning the continuum of patient care. With the implementation of Powerscribe, a voice recognition software which automatically prints the x-ray report as they are being dictated, and Intelerad, a workstation which allows the Radiologist to view and read the Digital Radiology Exam from a computer outside or inside the hospital, here at Monroe County Medical Center, referring and ordering physicians will experience a marked increase in the availability of diagnostic reports.



Every patient that is seen, whether routine or emergent, will benefit from the faster report turn-around times made possible by the utilization of Intelerad and Powerscribe. The Emergency Department will realize a decrease in the possibility of clinical discrepancies and an increase in patient throughput.



This state of the art technology, Powersribe and Intelerad, is custom designed to meet the needs of our medical community. With the continued support and collaboration of efforts from Ronnie Davis, R.T. (Diagnostic Imaging, Director) and Vicky McFall, R.N. (CEO); these combined enhancements will give Monroe County Medical Center a competitive advantage over similar hospitals in the surrounding market.
