Accelarad Cloud Storage Image Sharing Solution Aids Radiological Physicians Associates

21st century image-sharing platform connects one-third of West Virginia’s population

July 29, 2013 — Accelarad celebrated a five-year partnership with Radiological Physicians Associates (RPA XRAY), West Virginia’s largest private radiology.

Access to medical images is critical to trauma transfers, specialty consults, patient image requests and many other clinical scenarios. The adoption of Accelarad has allowed RPA XRAY to efficiently process more than 150,000 studies each year. Previously, these images were read manually on roto-viewers then on RPA servers that required frequent upgrades and expensive licensing fees. The Web-based system has also allowed RPA XRAY to hire physicians who are not in their immediate geographical region.

“We are very pleased with the growth we have experienced since partnering with Accelarad,” said Sam Merandi, administrative vice president of RPA. “We are under constant pressure to provide accurate and timely radiology reports for referring physicians. With Accelarad, our average turnaround time for all reports has been reduced from as much as 24 hours to just under two hours.”                                            

Accelarad provides Web-based installation and updates, as well as 24-hour support so RPA XRAY never has to interrupt their cycle of care. The ability to add doctors without additional licensing fees, combined with quick turnaround times has allowed RPA to experience 23 percent growth in the number of patients they are able to service each year.

“For five years, we’ve had the pleasure of providing Radiological Physicians Associates with cloud-based medical image distribution that enables its medical staff to improve workflows and provide quicker diagnosis,” said Willie Tillery, CEO of Accelarad.  “Our partnership with RPA XRAY, which services one third of West Virginia’s population, proves that Accelarad can truly connect communities and improve patient care on a large scale.”
