Cleveland Clinic Union Hospital Selects Novarad for Enterprise Imaging Management

April 8, 2019 — Cleveland Clinic Union Hospital (CCUH) recently selected Novarad to provide its facility with the Ncompass Enterprise Imaging System and specialized image management of both DICOM and non-DICOM with the company’s SnapView mobile app.

Novarad’s Ncompass Enterprise Imaging system also comes with a guaranteed Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), which makes the planning process that much easier on both the hospital’s current budget and on its financial outlook years down the road, according to Novarad.

“Software has become a major player here. A physician wants to see the story brought together, to see the patient as a whole. They don’t want to see radiology and then have to look somewhere else for a mammography,” said Jacqui Bianchi, IS application manager with CCUH. “What Novarad has given us is the ability to look at all these different images together, not just from the current stay, but from past stays as well. In this industry, with every healthcare dollar being scrutinized, we’re spending our dollars wisely.”

The hospital is also using Novarad’s SnapView image management app, which enables clinicians to securely collect non-DICOM images in departments such as wound care, emergency department (ED), ophthalmology and dermatology. By using supported iOS, Android and Windows mobile devices, images are transferred directly to the archive without leaving behind any protected health information (PHI) on the device.

“The enterprise imaging solution offers a great ROI [return on investment] because you won’t be pursuing three or four different solutions. It can all be managed from our servers here – one server, one vendor, one solution, one interface,” explained David Baumgardner, CIO at CCUH.
