ONRAD Announces New PACS Application Service Provider Model
Jesse Salen, the VP of Sales and Technology at Online Radiology Medical Group, Inc. (ONRAD) is delighted to announce ONRAD’s new web based PACS Application Service Provider (ASP) model.
Traditional PACS systems typically require large capital investments by a facility to install, and require advanced technical staff to perform the install, maintain the system, and upgrade the software. In addition, large service contracts are required.
ONRAD’s PACS ASP service eliminates the need for up front capital investments by the facility, and makes installation of a PACS easy. ONRAD provides the necessary secure gateway devices to enable connectivity from your facility, and provides you with a secure login to access your studies with a full featured PACS viewer application. Installs can be done in minutes, and maintenance and upgrades are provided by ONRAD as part of the service. This is a pay as you go plan, so you there is no up-front risk to your facility. With this model, it is almost ensured that you will avoid PACS headaches while achieving a significant ROI. The ONRAD PACS is powered by GE’s Centricity IW software and maintained in a completely secure facility with redundant architecture.
“ONRAD has developed the strongest network possible to achieve the cost benefit of moving images to the doctors instead of doctors to the images, and we feel that it will be a great value to other facilities and groups for us to share this same technology engine with them to help improve patient care with PACS in places where a large investment in PACS is just not possible,” says Mr. Salen.
