Boy film is expensive! Campbell County Memorial Hospital (CCMH), a 90-bed facility in Gillette, Wyo., has gotten a complete ROI from it's installation of NovaPACS by NovaRad Corporation in less than a year with the money not spent on film.
Between 2002-2003 CCMH's film budget was $172,209, yet in 2004 its film costs decreased to $32,278, a savings of $139,931.
In addition to the financial benefits, the NovaPACS installation has refined workflow processes and improved patient care. Both the nursing and oncology departments are able to view images at their desktops. The systems web-capabilities have also benefited referring physicians who are able to view images remotely.
