Texas-based healthcare system chooses Novarad for ease of use, customization and scalability

Neighbors Emergency Center Selects Novarad PACS/RIS

August 15, 2017 — Novarad Corp. has entered into agreement to provide picture archiving and communication system (PACS) and radiology information system (RIS) software to Texas-based Neighbors Emergency Center. Neighbors Emergency Center operates 35 emergency medical care centers throughout Texas, Colorado and Rhode Island.

Neighbors Emergency Center chose Novarad primarily because of the software’s operational simplicity and customizability.

“We picked Novarad because it was easy to use, and they listen to their users,” said Andrew Joiner, director of radiology with Neighbors Emergency Center. “Novarad is doing all sorts of things to make the process easier and making it easy for us to function on a higher level. The ease of use sold us.”

Another major benefit the organization cited as a reason for picking Novarad was the scalability of the software.

“We needed software that was scalable and customizable — we needed software that fit to our environment, not just something made to fit hospitals,” Joiner said. “Novarad understood that. That was the biggest selling point — the ability of the software to fit to our patient flow.”

Neighbors Emergency Center will be implementing Novarad’s software throughout its sites.
