Tennessee medical center chooses NovaRad for RIS, PACS
Northcrest Medical Center in Springville, Tenn., has chosen to replace its existing PACS with NovaPACS from NovaRad. Northcrest is also installing NovaRIS to help with the management of its patient records.

NovaRad said its NovaPACS is an enterprise-level PACS, offering image retrieval, full-feature viewer with interface and seven-year on-site archive with off site emergency back up. Full-screen viewing, menus and mouse-based functions are available to help referring physicians have access to images and reports from any computer, the American Fork, Utah-based company.

The company said its NovaRIS is a web-based, open standards RIS that generates reports, analyzes exams, measures profitability and facilitates paperless management of patient records. NovaRIS is developed on the same platform as NovaPACS.

The 109-bed Northcrest has more than 100 active and consulting physicians are on its staff.
