July 30, 2012 — Novarad Corp. has installed its NovaPro RIS/PACS (radiology information system/picture archiving and communications system) Web-based teleradiology system as part of Emory Teleradiology, a service of Emory Healthcare that serves 15 non-Emory facilities.
NovaPro is a complete RIS/PACS, available as an installed system or SaaS (software as a service), designed specifically for radiology groups. It can receive and display DICOM (digital imaging and communications in medicine) images from unlimited, unaffiliated image-producing practices. Reports can be distributed via e-mail, fax or direct HL7 messaging to a HIS (hospital information system), RIS or EMR/EHR (electronic medical records/electronic health records).
The teleradiology program at Emory offers a wide range of radiology services available for 24-hour coverage for subspecialties including musculoskeletal radiology, neuroradiology, nuclear medicine and molecular imaging.
"Our radiology systems are built by radiologists for radiologists to help simplify reading, improve productivity and help our customers, like Emory, meet their business growth objectives," said Steve Fowler, product marketing director at Novarad. “Emory has an ambitious vision for expanding its teleradiology service, and NovaPro will help make this a reality."
Novarad South, a Novarad distributor, facilitated the Emory Healthcare contract and will host the servers for Emory Healthcare’s NovaPro SaaS implementation.
