Case Study

Home » Software Case Studies » Northside Women’s Specialists


Northside Women’s Specialists (NWS) is part of Obstetrix, the nation’s largest provider of pediatric subspecialty and obstetric service hospital in the United States. NWS offers medical expertise and state-of-the-art technology to ensure personalized attention.

Business Goals

NWS aimed to enhance connectivity and efficiency across multiple locations by upgrading their technological infrastructure. The primary goals were to streamline operations, improve patient care through faster and clearer ultrasound imaging, and ensure seamless data handling through an integrated electronic medical record (EMR) system.

Business Challenge

NWS faced the challenge of linking three local offices and creating a local area network robust enough to support a new ultrasound image storage system. Our role extended to assisting in vendor selection and negotiation, ultimately choosing GE Viewpoint due to its advanced capabilities and suitability for NWS’s operational scale.


The project required an update of infrastructure to interlink four remote offices into a cohesive network and digital conversion of a paper-based system to a comprehensive 100+ seat EMR system. Also included was the provision of application and infrastructure support and maintenance services.

Project Highlights

  • Infrastructure Upgrade: Established a cohesive network across four offices, facilitating smoother inter-office communication and data management.
  • Digital Transformation: Transitioned from paper-based systems to a digital EMR system, enhancing accessibility and security of patient information.
  • Vendor Selection Support: Guided NWS through the selection of GE Viewpoint, leveraging our expertise to secure the best technology fit for their needs.

We worked with NWS to define a technology roadmap that was in synch with the growth aspirations of the company.

“It is difficult to find quality vendors in this volatile business environment. It is even more impressive to keep them long term. I am happy to continue to recommend SOLTECH as an IT vendor for many areas. I highly recommend SOLTECH. They are truly extraordinary IT partners.”

– Tanya Mack, NWS


Our involvement helped NWS navigate the technical and contractual aspects of the infrastructure update, resulting in enhanced image clarity and transmission speed. The implementation of the HL7 interface with the new PACS system streamlined patient management processes, saving time and improving the quality of patient care.
