Novarad Adds Philippines PACS Installs

Philippines in the mapAmerican Fork, Utah – May 10, 2011 – The 113-year-old Chinese General Hospital, one of the oldest hospitals in Manila City, and Cardinal MRI Center, in San Juan City, Philippines are the latest international facilities to install Novarad’s NovaPACS.

PACS is one of the latest technologies that the facilities installed to help transition their imaging services to completely digital environments. NovaPACS was selected because it is web-based, enabling images to be easily shared with radiologists at partner and referring facilities.

Fast installation and seamless HIS or EMR were additional decision factors.

“We understand that reducing disruption to business operations and maintaining high-quality patient service during an installation is of utmost importance,” said Paul Shumway, senior vice president at Novarad. “Our installation and integration teams get facilities up and live fast. Installations are completed in just weeks and our integration team works with each facility to ensure as seamless integration between the PACS and any HL7 compliant HIS or EMR.”

NovaPACS is Novarad’s complete, turnkey PACS system 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.
