Radiology Group Implements CoActiv EXAM-PACS
Cites Robust Technology and Affordable Price
July 16, 2018—Ridgefield, CT—Radiology Group, P.C. has selected CoActiv EXAM-PACS® for the management and communication of its medical images. The multi-site radiology practice with offices in Hamden and Branford, Connecticut provides a range of services including CT, digital mammography, fluoroscopy, diagnostic radiology, and ultrasound. Radiology Group sought seamless, dependable technology and the security of redundant, cloud-based archiving.
“CoActiv’s robust, reliable solution offered cloud storage and additional functionality that our previous system did not,” says Jay Sokolow, MD, FACS, vice president of Radiology Group. “As an added bonus, we found it cost-effective for our small two-office group—and now we have the capability to easily merge archives with another practice in the future should our practice grow. The transition to CoActiv’s technology was exceptionally smooth and the system was easy for all of our staff to learn.”
Dr. Sokolow added that it was important to Radiology Group to select a local provider that could work on site when needed and that CoActiv stood out due to their reputation for superior customer support.
In addition to its medical image acquisition, viewing, and archiving modules, Radiology Group plans to implement CoActiv’s referring physician portal.
“CoActiv is committed to providing customized image management solutions for radiology facilities of every size,” says Charles O’Neill, Vice President of Client Operations for CoActiv Medical. “We are pleased to be able to offer advanced technology at an affordable price point and look forward to playing a role in Radiology Group’s continued success.”
