September 19, 2011 — USARAD.com LLC announced the introduction of Radiology-On-Demand RadStore, a long-term image storage solution available at no or low cost to all new and existing clients. The service complements the existing cloud-based technologies the company already provides to help clients manage their outsourced images and reports.
Cloud archiving allows exams to be accessed at any time from any location with Internet connectivity. The system provides ultra-fast image access and the highest level of HIPAA-compliant security.
The new service eliminates the large capital expense of archiving hardware purchase, as well as the time and cost of maintenance and ongoing technology upgrades. Clients may also take advantage of advanced features such back-up of data and the ability to share images with referring and consulting physicians and patients.
USARAD.com sites will be able to securely store all of their images for seven years or until patients reach the age of 18 as mandated by regulatory bodies. With a centralized exam location, image sharing with other providers and patients is simple; sites can also take advantage of electronic data access to provide an enhanced level of client service.
Onsite radiologists using the service can view outsourced patient images and reports as well as access priors quickly and easily before a patient’s appointment, wherever they are working.
Oliver Tsesis, practice manager at Radiology of Westchester P.C., a multi-modality imaging center in Ardsley, N.Y., an early program participant, comments, “Combined with USARAD.com’s reading expertise and unmatched turn-around-time, their advanced IT infrastructure, including cloud archiving, offers tremendous competitive advantage for our practice. Cloud archiving is easy and convenient and contributes to an improved patient care.”
