March 26, 2010 - Completing in excess of 30 digital mammography studies per day and a large number of general studies and ultrasound, Troy Internal Medicine, P.C., one of Michigan’s largest internal medicine groups, needed a solution to help manage its existing workflow and allow it to grow its services.
The Michigan-based hospital sought a solution in a turnkey picture archiving and communications systems (PACS). The group selected the NovaPACS system because it offered a that included computed radiography (CR), a high resolution mammography printer, viewer/workstations for mammography, off-site disaster recovery, redundant on-site RAID 5 servers, document scanning, film digitizer and software and hardware replacement at no additional charge.
Troy Internal Medicine plans to build out of the new PACS web-based access for sharing and viewing all studies and improve scheduling and billing processes. It also will use the PACS to offer 24 hour NovaCentral support that enables NovaRad’s customer support team to monitor the PACS to ensure uptime and updates for optimal performance of the system.
With its new PACS in place, Troy Internal Medicine now anticipates its volume to increase to more than 30,000 radiology exams this year.
