August 29, 2007 - Gaylord Hospital, a long-term acute care hospital in Wallingford, CT, has selected CoActiv Medical to supply its advanced EXAM-PACS family of products to support the acquisition, analysis, distribution and archiving of medical images.
The decision followed an extensive search involving six vendors representing every segment of the market. CoActiv was selected, in part, because the company reportedly demonstrated that the hospital could offset its PACS capital expenses through the savings realized over hardcopy imaging within five years. CoActiv also installed a fully integrated CR solution along with the PACS.
CoActiv installed the PACS and CR together and the system was up and running in one day. Three weeks later, the hospital went live with a new radiology reading group. As a result, Gaylord plans to expand the radiology department and PACS with CT and ultrasound.
