Radiology Medical Consultants Goes Live on eRAD's Cloud to Manage Distributed Reading Workflow

GREENVILLE, S.C., Nov 16, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- eRAD, a division of RadNet, Inc. (Nasdaq:RDNT), announced today that Radiology Medical Consultants, Inc. (RMC) of Bingham Farms, MI has installed eRAD's uniRAD solution to provide a consolidated imaging workflow from the various disparate DICOM modalities and PACS systems for which it reads.

RMC's radiologists provide diagnostic reading services for multiple imaging providers, each utilizing a unique PACS system or, in some cases, mobile imaging modalities. RMC chose eRAD's uniRAD consolidated workflow management for its ability to aggregate studies from multiple disparate sites into a single worklist which can be accessed via eRAD's cloud. All reading, dictation and transcription, is performed using one integrated product which is easily accessible via the Internet.

"Prior to using eRAD, we had a highly manual (and messy) process for aggregating the clinical documentation and images and then dictating, transcribing, editing, signing and distributing reports," said Rick Chesbrough, M.D., President and CEO of RMC. "We have seen our efficiency go up by an order of magnitude now that we are using eRAD, and it was easy to deploy, given they provide all of the IT infrastructure when utilizing the cloud. It's a lot like subscribing to a cell phone plan," added Dr. Chesbrough.

"More and more we are seeing radiologists purchase their own systems to aggregate and manage data into a single system for reading. Gone are the days when a radiologist can afford to log onto to several disparate systems in a day to do their work. The efficiency just isn't there in this age of declining reimbursement," according to Seth Koeppel, SVP Sales at eRAD. "The eRAD solution can handle multiple vendor inputs even as it reduces IT complexity." About RMC Radiology Medical Consultants, P.C. (RMC) is an outpatient-based radiology group providing professional diagnostic imaging interpretations for x-ray, general and vascular ultrasounds, echocardiograms, CT, MRI, nuclear medicine and mammography.
