Intelligent Patient Scheduling
Opal-wRIS makes scheduling easy, input appointments by patient, calendar, or resource (modality, physician, procedure) and view first available time slot.
- With Secure Scheduling the RIS software will not notify if a resource is double booked or not allow a patient to double book on multiple resources at the same time.
- Intuitive Patient Registration notifies and suggests a merge when registering duplicate patient fields
- Easily reschedule patients without re-entering exam and CPT information
- With a dedicated schedule for walk-ins, patients without appointments can be added to the facilities records with no complications

- Referring physicians can also have the ability to view images, reports, and scanned documents depending on facility permissions
- Access to patient information for referring physicians can results in quicker report turnaround time
Avoid insurance denying a payment with Procedure-Diagnosis Validation. Opal-wRIS compares ICD 9 and CPT codes to ensure the exam generated is appropriate for the presented ailment to avoid insurance rejection.
- The wRIS system produces a statistical analysis to determine the likelihood of receiving insurance payment for procedure based on the patients’ initial presentation
- Opal-WEB RIS is preloaded with CPT codes saving time coding and in turn results in improved efficiency.
Opal-wRIS features a full-fledged women’s health module for mammography imaging. The mammography component meets all MQSA standards put forth by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
