Allendale, NJ (PRWEB) August 23, 2007
Dynamic Imaging (http://www.dynamic-imaging.com), an established leader in Web-based image and information management, announced today that Prime Healthcare Services (http://www.primehealthcareservices.com) has selected IntegradWeb® PACS to establish picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) in five hospitals that it currently owns and manages.
“Prime Healthcare is dedicated to providing its patients excellence in medical care and access to the latest technology,” said Lex Reddy, MBA, MHA, Prime Healthcare’s president and CEO. “We have chosen Dynamic Imaging for PACS because we continually look for leading solutions that meet the growing needs of our facilities.” In addition, Prime Healthcare is considering replacing existing PACS at other Prime Healthcare facilities with IntegradWeb PACS.
The rapidly expanding hospital management company in southern California has recently gone live with the Web-based IntegradWeb PACS at Montclair Hospital Medical Center (Montclair, CA), Huntington Beach Hospital (Huntington Beach, CA), La Palma Intercommunity Hospital (La Palma, CA), and West Anaheim Memorial Hospital (Anaheim, CA). Paradise Valley Hospital (National City, CA) is the fifth and most recent Prime Healthcare hospital to install IntegradWeb PACS, which is due to go live in December of this year.
“IntegradWeb PACS is an important part of Prime Healthcare’s commitment to improving infrastructure and providing state-of-the-art technology that facilitates high-quality patient care,” said Alex Jurovitsky, chief executive officer of Dynamic Imaging. “As a partner, we look forward to helping Prime Healthcare achieve these admirable goals as it improves health care quality in the communities it serves.”
IntegradWeb PACS seamlessly interfaces with the MEDITECH hospital and radiology information systems (HIS/RIS) and electronic medical records (EMR) systems used in Prime Healthcare’s diverse hospital settings, giving radiologists and referring physicians complete, anywhere access to radiology images and reports. IntegradWeb PACS has demonstrated integration with all MEDITECH information system platforms (MEDITECH Client/Server and Magic) and EMRs (MEDITECH EMR and PCI) making future PACS integrations at Prime Healthcare facilities straightforward, cost-effective and easily replicable.
Radiology personnel at Prime Healthcare facilities are enthusiastically looking forward to moving to IntegradWeb PACS. “Prime Healthcare is proud to implement the state-of-the-art PACS technology, which will dramatically enhance our level of care and the overall service we provide. IntegradWeb PACS streamlines the way we practice radiology by providing detailed images that can be accessed anywhere within minutes,” said Gregory Brentano, the administrator at Montclair Hospital Medical Center. “Clinicians with appropriate log-on credentials are able to securely access and view their patient images and reports anywhere in the world using a PC and a Web connection.”
