NovaRad, NCS DataCom to offer Software as a Service
NovaRad and NCS Datacom have partnered to offer NovaRad’s NovaPro RIS/PACS software as a fully-hosted Software as a Service (SaaS) system.

NovaPRO facilitates the receipt of DICOM images from unlimited, unaffiliated image producing practices, ensuring that images and information remain separate, said the American Fork, Utah-based NovaRad. Facilities can retrieve images without storing or maintaining image files. Received images are scrubbed from the archive when the storage limit, pre-determined by the interpreting physician, is reached. However, if the storage and archiving of images and reports is required, the system is configurable to be a complete PACS.

The SaaS model enables single radiologists and radiologist groups to access NovaPro. According to NovaRad and the Richmond, Ohio-based NCS DataCom, a managed security and network services company, provides support and hosts the system in its high-availability data centers.
