Novarad Adds Installation at Alabama Hospital

Northwest Med Center

American Fork, Utah – March 28, 2011 – Northwest Medical Center, a rural community hospital in Winfield, Ala., selected Novarad as its PACS provider. The PACS is one of the latest technologies that the hospital installed to help transition its Imaging Services to a completely digital environment.

Decision makers at Northwest Medical Center selected NovaPACS because it is a complete web-based PACS with voice annotation set sync, MIP/MPR, advanced hanging protocols, point ROI, measuring tools, customizable menus, saved preferences, stat reads and check-out and e-sign capabilities.

One of the hospital’s “High Five Values” is ensuring fiscal responsibility; NovaPACS is offered under a flat monthly fee and customers typically find the PACS system has paid for itself in less than a year.

NovaPACS is Novarad’s complete, turnkey PACS offering fast image retrieval, full-feature viewer with intuitive interface, and 7-year on-site archive with off site emergency back up. Full screen viewing, easy to use menus and mouse-based functions are available to help enhance efficiency and referring physicians have complete access to images and reports from any computer. To complement NovaPACS, NovaRIS, developed on the same platform as the PACS, generates reports, measures profitability and facilitates paperless management of patient records.
