ABQ Health Partners, the largest independent medical group in New Mexico has selected NovaRad's NovaRIS and NovaPACS radiology technologies. The medical group selected NovaRad because its RIS/PACS technologies were affordable and ABQ Health Partners could anticipate achieving a return on its investment in less than a year. Additionally, the seamless integration between the RIS/PACS and its ability to integrate with the medical groups EHR and other existing systems were also factors in the final decision.
Radiologists at ABQ Health Partners valued the mouse-driven viewer, customizable menus, saved preferences feature, advanced hanging protocols, measuring tools and web-based interface within NovaPACS. With NovaPACS they are able to read onsite or offsite to deliver even faster interpretations.
Our systems are designed by radiologists to meet the reading needs of radiologists with an affordable pricing model to fit within the budgetary constraints of every facility, said Paul Shumway, vice president at NovaRad. It is rewarding to be selected by ABQ Health Partners and we look forward to working with them to help continue their tradition of delivering excellent healthcare and service to their community.
