GREENVILLE, S.C., April 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carolina Breast Imaging Specialists (CBIS), a breast imaging center based in Greenville, NC, implemented eRAD technology to support its focus on early cancer detection and specialized care in breast health.
eRAD, a subsidiary of RadNet, Inc. (Nasdaq:RDNT), a leading provider of standards-based, web-centric radiology image and data management solutions, deployed its PACS and other applications and services at CBIS, which launched imaging services last fall.
"An important factor for us was that we wanted a company nimble enough to deploy in a relatively short amount of time," said Bruce Schroeder, M.D., founder and Medical Director of CBIS. "Technically, we like that eRAD is mobile compatible. I definitely wanted a solution that lets me and my referrers look at an image on an iPad or iPhone, and eRAD gave us that right upfront."
eRAD gives CBIS the flexibility to scale, while structuring the solution so that operational costs could get top priority, not upfront capital outlay. "That flexibility is why we went with eRAD. Our very specific needs were addressed, and that's been borne out since the implementation as well," said Schroeder.
"A key to our success was the ability to get CBIS up and running in a matter of weeks," said Seth Koeppel, SVP of Sales for eRAD. "Even with three or four systems to integrate, we could quickly deliver the programming interfaces they needed so that those systems could communicate easily. Our APIs give their referring physicians secure access to the PACS and plenty of options on data management and integration as the practice grows."
"Our support rep is a star—very smart, very capable," said Schroeder. "When we needed one-off solutions, they got it done quickly. I feel very comfortable with the eRAD team."
