August 22, 2008 - Hampden County Physicians Associates, a 16-site, multispecialty medical practice with more than 50 physicians in multiple offices throughout Hampden county, MA, has selected CoActiv’s advanced EXAM-PACS for digital image viewing, management, communication and archiving.
The practice group includes a freestanding multimodality imaging center and additional stand-alone modalities in select offices. With exams ranging from CT, CR and ultrasound to bone densitometry, Hampden relies on a specialized offsite contract radiology group for reading of its rapidly growing exam volume.
“We installed CoActiv EXAM-PACS to step up image turnaround for enhanced patient care, to increase our imaging efficiency and to enhance data protection in the event of an IT disaster,” said Lynne Johnston, RT (R)M, director of imaging services for the Hampden Physicians. “Prior to this, we had a simple DICOM image viewer with onsite digital image storage. Often, we burned images to CDs and sent them by courier to our radiology group across town. With a rapidly increasing image volume, we needed a better solution.”
