CoActiv Medical Taps Desert Health as Distributor in Southwest Region

Firm to Promote CoActiv Line through National Network of E-Commerce Sites

October 2, 2012 — Desert Health Imaging Technologies of Phoenix has been named distributor in the Southwest region for CoActiv Medical’s full line of picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), radiology information systems (RIS) and cloud-based medical imaging archiving solutions. Desert Health will also market the CoActiv product line nationally through its extensive e-commerce websites as well as take advantage of sales opportunities through its National Healthcare Distributors affiliation.

“DHIT was looking for an established PACS provider with a broad-based product portfolio and outstanding customer acceptance,” said Tim Scherkenback, owner of Desert Health. “CoActiv's outstanding KLAS ratings certainly gained our attention and motivated us to pursue further dialogue with the CoActiv team. The company was a standout on KLAS customer satisfaction ratings across the board and was the only vendor reviewed that delivered on 100 percent of its promises to customers. Desert Health shares that same commitment to customer service. CoActiv is a company whose vision is clearly aligned with ours.”

“We are pleased to welcome Desert Health to CoActiv’s growing list of distributors, which have tripled during the past year and now span the country,” said Frank Baker, vice president of sales for CoActiv. “We look forward to a long and successful relationship with the company and are particularly anticipating excellent results from Desert Health’s strong e-commerce efforts.”

CoActiv Exam-PACS is a leading Web-based PACS with vendor-neutral archiving, zero-footprint viewers and full cloud-based PACS applications. “Now, CoActiv is introducing truly multidimensional cloud-based imaging technology with a diverse range of virtual products, which will debut leading up to RSNA. We expect to create a bit of excitement in the industry with our new array of cloud offerings,” said Ed Heere, president and CEO of CoActiv.
