DOVER, Ohio. – Cleveland Clinic Union Hospital (CCUH) selected Novarad, a leader in the development of medical imaging software, to provide its facility with its Ncompass Enterprise Imaging® System and specialized image management of both DICOM and non-DICOM with the company’s SnapView® mobile app.
Novarad’s Ncompass Enterprise Imaging system also comes with a guaranteed Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), which makes the planning process that much easier on both the hospital’s current budget and on its financial outlook years down the road.
“Software has become a major player here. A physician wants to see the story brought together, to see the patient as a whole. They don’t want to see radiology and then have to look somewhere else for a mammography,” said Jacqui Bianchi, IS Application Manager with CCUH. “What Novarad has given us is the ability to look at all these different images together, not just from the current stay, but from past stays as well. In this industry, with every healthcare dollar being scrutinized, we’re spending our dollars wisely.”
The hospital is also using Novarad’s SnapView image management app, which enables clinicians to securely collect non-DICOM images in departments such as wound care, ED, ophthalmology and dermatology. By using supported iOS, Android and Windows mobile devices, images are transferred directly to the archive without leaving behind any PHI on the device.
“The enterprise imaging solution offers a great ROI because you won’t be pursuing three or four different solutions. It can all be managed from our servers here – one server, one vendor, one solution, one interface,” explained David Baumgardner, CIO at CCUH.
The hospital is acclaimed for its successes in information security and technological sophistication, having earned multiple special recognitions in recent years. This recognition includes consecutive years on Becker’s Hospital Review’s 100 Great Community Hospitals list. The hospital has also achieved certification as a Primary Stroke Center and has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
Novarad offers PACS, RIS, cardiology, orthopaedic, and mammography systems and has more than 1000 installations worldwide. To learn more about Novarad, follow the company on Twitter @NovaradCorp, or visit www.novarad.net.
