CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SouthWest Imaging has been named distributor for CoActiv’s complete line of PACS, RIS and cloud-based digital archiving products throughout Nevada, Utah and Arizona. The highly experienced SouthWest Imaging specialists with a reputation for quality and service selected CoActiv, in part, for its broad cloud-based offerings that provide a complete image management system with easy set up, low cost of ownership and streamlined offsite communications.
“Today, for many small-to medium-sized facilities, maintaining and upgrading hardware and software just doesn’t make sense in light of the ongoing, overall costs,” says Stephen J. Luibel, President of SouthWest Imaging Inc. “Together, CoActiv’s next-generation cloud offerings provide a robust, affordable, fully turnkey solution that meets a significant need in the marketplace and complements our existing product line. They eliminate all in-house upgrades, hardware replacement and IT support—and are fully scalable, overcoming the major pain points for these customers.”
Luibel also points out that streamlined communications with referring physicians and remote facilities is an important concern for all imaging sites. CoActiv's patented EXAM-SENDER® provides a cost effective, reliable platform for offsite image sharing, while its EXAM-BROWSER® zero footprint viewer supports communication on mobile devices.
Complementing this, CoActiv’s onsite image management solutions provide a full range of advanced technology at a truly affordable price point. The vendor neutral PACS, RIS and related solutions—including the soon-to-be–released EXAM-PACS® 3.0—deliver a breakthrough platform that enables all sites to stay in the forefront of today’s rapidly accelerating technology curve. They support the latest imaging modalities, specialized needs of women’s health and viewing on a full range of devices.
According to Frank Baker, CoActiv General Manager, SouthWest Imaging was selected for its reputation for high quality technology and service as well as strong relationships with local hospitals and imaging centers—in particular, smaller facilities, which represent an untapped market for CoActiv in this geographic area. “SouthWest has deep ongoing relationships with its customer base. It offers a broad spectrum of services beyond sales and shares our commitment to delivering personalized service and meeting a full range of customer needs. We are proud to partner with this highly regarded distributor.”
