Together with Synergy Radiology Associates of Houston, Texas, ScImage, Inc. of Los Altos, Calif., announced the enormously successful implementation of ScImage’s PICOM365 Cloud PACS to augment Synergy Radiology Associates’ reading services.

While ScImage’s Cloud PACS has been in ordinary production use for nearly 15 years, service providers like Synergy Radiology are now recognizing the value of a secure, distributed core to manage complex image distribution with access to priors, along with final report delivery with automation.

“It’s a brave new world in accountable care. Only the fittest will survive, but you need the right tools to get you there”, said Armando Saenz, M.d., of Synergy Radiology. “ScImage is a great fit for us. The flexibility of their cloud based PACS helped us achieve our goal of reading cases from virtually anywhere and providing our patients and customers with unprecedented report turn-around times.”

Synergy Radiology recognized the high value, low risk of ScImage’s PICOM Cloud PACS to help expand the reach of their radiology reading service. The distributed reading performance, massive scalability and rapid report delivery clearly met Synergy’s expectations as they continue to expand their revenue sphere. Deploying the consolidated reading environment required little to no up-front investment in infrastructure or additional support.

ScImage’s founder, Sai Raya, Ph.D., explains “Leveraging the fundamental strength of PICOM365 in offering location-independent image exchange, we are able to offer high-volume groups like Synergy Radiology the security, performance and scalability they need to manage and grow their imaging services. Our end-to-end encrypted Cloud PACS provides all of the clinical imaging, reporting and workflow tools that an ordinary installed PACS would offer, with a lower total cost of ownership and greater distributed performance.”

“Typical teleradiology systems are heavily dependent on having an ‘air-traffic controller’ to manage the assignment and movement of exams. With ScImage’s Cloud PACS, business rules manage the flow of imaging studies and workflow triggers manage the report delivery,” added Raya.
