June 26, 2009 - AccelaRAD, a software as a service (SaaS) radiology image management company, installed its advanced digital management software at five new sites, including three Mid-Atlantic Unified Health System-affiliated imaging centers (New Stanton, PA), Charlton Memorial Hospital (Folkston, GA) and Red Bud Regional Hospital (Red Bud, IL).
Mid-Atlantic Unified Health (MAUHS) sites are using AccelaRAD’s Virtual Radiology Network (VRN) to provide full PACS functionality, offsite archiving and sophisticated online communication with referring physicians. Charlton Memorial, a critical access hospital in rural Georgia, is using the VRN to provide remote access to images to its offsite radiology reading group as well as to referring physicians. Red Bud is using the VRN to accomplish similar goals.
R. Brad Pettican, Managing Partner at Mid-Atlantic Unified Health Systems, believes AccelaRAD’s VRN provides his organization with unique benefits. Pettican notes that AccelaRAD’s VRN is an affordable solution that shifts implementation and hardware expenses from a capital expense to an operational budget. Moreover, AccelaRAD manages all IT maintenance and upgrades.
The AccelaRAD VRN provides advanced PACS, teleradiology and related digital image management functionalities through a sophisticated Internet-based technology that minimizes installation time and expense and enables anywhere, any time image access. The VRN platform and archived images reside in AccelaRAD’s TIER 4 datacenter. Using this same Internet-based backbone, AccelaRAD’s new SeeMyRadiology.com platform enables patients to create their own personalized libraries of exams in a centralized location, which can be shared reportedly securely with physicians of their choosing.
