FAIRMONT, W.Va. - Aug. 5, 2013 - PRLog -- July 29, 2013 - ATLANTA –Accelarad, the nation's leading cloud-based medical image sharing (http://www.accelarad.com/healthcare-organizations/social-mobile-cloud/) solution, celebrates a five-year partnership with Radiological Physicians Associates (RPA XRAY), West Virginia’s largest private radiology practice servicing more than 32 medical facilities, including 12 hospitals, 14 clinics and several physicians offices, such as St Joseph's of Buckhannon, Grafton City, Stonewall Jackson, Jefferson Medical, Pocahontas Memorial, Fairmont General, and Roane General Hospital.Accelarad is the largest and most experienced cloud-based medical image-exchange (http://www.accelarad.com/healthcare-organizations/social-mobile-cloud/) platform available today, enabling collaborative coordination of care while providing users with both security and ease of use.

Access to medical images is critical to trauma transfers, specialty consults, patient image requests and many other clinical scenarios. The adoption of Accelarad has allowed RPA XRAY to efficiently process more than 150,000 studies each year. Previously, these images were read manually on roto-viewers then on RPA servers that required frequent upgrades and expensive licensing fees. The web-based system has also allowed RPA XRAY to hire physicians who are not in their immediate geographical region.

“We are very pleased with the growth we have experienced since partnering with Accelarad,” said Sam Merandi, administrative vice president of RPA. “We are under constant pressure to provide accurate and timely radiology reports for referring physicians. With Accelarad, our average turnaround time for all reports has been reduced from as much as 24 hours to just under two hours.”          

Accelarad provides web-based installation and updates, as well as 24-hour support so RPA XRAY never has to interrupt their cycle of care. The ability to add doctors without additional licensing fees, combined with quick turnaround times has allowed RPA to experience 23% percent growth in the number of patients they are able to service each year.

“For five years, we’ve had the pleasure of providing Radiological Physicians Associates with cloud-based medical image distribution (http://www.accelarad.com/healthcare-organizations/product...) that enables its medical staff to improve workflows and provide quicker diagnosis,” said Willie Tillery, CEO of Accelarad.  “Our partnership with RPA XRAY, which services one third of West Virginia’s population, proves that Accelarad can truly connect communities and improve patient care on a large scale.”
