Los Angeles, CA – (June 22, 2020) Breast Care for Washington (BCW), the only facility in the nation's capital to routinely offer mammogram screenings and diagnostic imaging to low-income and medically underserved women regardless of their insurance status, has achieved impressive growth since implementing the MedInformatix RIS technology platform three years ago.
In 2017, MedInformatix donated an end-to-end radiology information system to help BCW more efficiently optimize their data and workflow operations and ultimately help clinicians deliver imaging services to more women across the greater Washington area. The donation came as part of a series of corporate social responsibility endeavors that underscore the company's commitment to community outreach and healthcare accessibility.
BCW is the only mammography facility in the country to be integrated within a federally qualified health center, allowing providers to play a critical role in strengthening the link between primary care and screening for underserved patients. The center offers a comprehensive range of diagnostic mammograms, breast ultrasounds and minimally invasive biopsy procedures, and is the first and only breast cancer screening facility east of the Anacostia River to offer state-of-the-art 3D imaging, a level of service often reserved for advanced hospital settings.
Special-Pricing Available on Medical Displays, Patient Monitors, Recorders, Printers, Media, Ultrasound Machines, and Cameras.This includes Top Brands such as SONY, BARCO, NDS, NEC, LG, EDAN, EIZO, ELO, FSN, PANASONIC, MITSUBISHI, OLYMPUS, & WIDE.
"MedInformatix has been a valuable strategic partner for us," said Beth Beck, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer at BCW. "From an operational perspective their technology allows our clinical and administrative teams to efficiently deliver care, track patient progress and promptly submit claims to insurance. From a personal perspective we share a mission-driven desire to offer quality, accessible healthcare to those in a community who need it most. They really have become an important lifeline for us."
Beck and her colleague Dr. Regina Hampton launched BCW in 2014 to help combat the significant health disparities which exist in the metropolitan area. Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control show the District of Columbia leads the nation in both breast cancer incidence and in breast cancer mortality rates. Breast cancer is the second most diagnosed cancer in the Washington area according to the District of Columbia Department of Public Health. The nearby suburbs of Maryland and Virginia also have higher than average incidence rates of breast cancer, with segments of the population ineligible for state-based health assistance.
