Novarad Adds RIS/PACS Installs on Both Coasts

IMAG0065American Fork, Utah, Aug. 22, 2011 – Hygeia Diagnostic Imaging in Forest Hills, N.Y., and Broadway Imaging Center in Glendale, Calif., are the latest imaging centers to install Nova RIS and NovaPACS to increase efficiency, decrease report turnaround time, improve workflow and enhance scheduling and billing processes.

NovaPACS was selected to complete the centers’ advanced imaging services and streamline image access for both staff and referring physicians. With Nova RIS, the imaging centers anticipate that scheduling, tracking and billing processes will significantly decrease.

Installation and training on the systems were completed in a very short timeframe and Hygeia and Broadway Imaging Centers anticipated achieving a return on their investment in less than a year.

“Reducing disruption to business operations and achieving a quick return is of utmost importance for any facility,” 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 a seamless integration between our radiology systems and other existing systems.”

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. For a complete solution, Novarad offers the Nova RIS scheduling and automated billing solution.
