April 2, 2008 - Ellsworth County Medical Center (ECMC) of Kansas installed NovaPACS from NovaRad in hopes to enhance patient service and streamline image reading and reporting, totaling 20 clinics and hospitals throughout the Kansas area with NovaPACS installations.
According to the company ECMC’s radiologists read about 10,000 studies annually and the NovaPACS installation has reduced the time of reading and reporting from three days to 12 hours. With the system, radiologists are able to access images at ECMC or via a secure password, reportedly from any Web-enabled computer.
NovaPACS is an enterprise-level PACS offering fast image retrieval, a full-feature viewer with intuitive interface and a 7-year on-site archive with off site emergency back up. Full screen viewing, menus and mouse-based functions are available to help enhance efficiency and referring physicians have complete access to images and reports from any computer.
