ScImage celebrates cloud partnership with National Cardiovascular Management, Inc.
June 15, 2021
Los Altos, CA – June 15, 2021 - ScImage, Inc., a leading provider of Cloud-centric enterprise imaging and reporting solutions, celebrates its partnership with National Cardiovascular Management ("NCM"), a national consulting and management company that partners with entrepreneurial physicians to design and develop state-of-the-art outpatient cath lab facilities with the highest quality equipment and technology.
NCM's first project with ScImage went live in March at Peak Surgery Center of Avondale, Arizona and was developed in cooperation with the providers from multispecialty cardiovascular group Peak Heart & Vascular, which has locations in Avondale, Surprise, Ariz., and Flagstaff, Ariz. ScImage's PICOM365 Cloud provides image review, storage, and advanced structured reporting to manage the complex, measurement-centric cardiac catheterization procedures performed in the facilities.
"ScImage's Cloud-based offering was an ideal fit for our ASC, as we can access the robust features, functions, and workflow integration we need to connect the disparate devices used in a cath lab at an affordable price and without having to make huge upfront investments in IT infrastructure or software licenses," said Will Bozlee, Clinical Director, Peak Surgery Center. "PICOM365 easily integrates with our EHR to provide modality worklist and finalized structured reports with image links."
ScImage, in partnership with Fysicon (a Canon company), also outfitted Peak Surgery's cath labs with QMAPP Hemodynamic Monitoring Solution. "Fysicon's modernized, small form factor amplifier greatly enhances the ergonomics and provides an intuitive, highly customizable user interface. PICOM365's seamless integration with QMAPP allowed all of this to be implemented easily and made the report creation process, which the doctors can do from anywhere (i.e., the hospital, their offices or at home), a breeze," concluded Mr. Bozlee.
"As CMS expands reimbursement, shifting Cardiology procedures to an ASC has many benefits," said Sai Raya, Ph.D., ScImage's Founder and CEO. "In addition to substantial cost savings for patients and payors, it offers a more convenient and accommodating setting for both physicians and their patients. Combined with a 'one stop shop' Cloud-centric imaging and reporting workflow that reduces both operational and IT expenses, the future for ASCs looks bright."
Founded in 1993, ScImage remains a private, customer-first company with a mission to provide innovative enterprise imaging solutions to the healthcare industry. ScImage's unique single-database PICOM365 enterprise platform delivers end-to-end imaging workflow for Cardiology, Radiology, Women's Health, Orthopedics, Ophthalmology and more. Scalable from a single physician practice to a multi-hospital enterprise, PICOM365 is customizable and can be delivered on-premise, in the Cloud, or as a hybrid. The perfect synchrony created between on-site and Cloud resources allows PICOM365 to provide secure VPN-less image exchange solutions among legacy silo systems, Cloud users, and various EHR systems.
