AG Mednet increases productivity and revenue for Alliance Radiology
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Kansas’ Largest Radiology Practice Selects AG Mednet’s Diagnostic Imaging Network
AG Mednet, the world’s largest diagnostic imaging network, today announced that Alliance Radiology, one of the largest radiology practices in Kansas, has selected the AG Mednet imaging network for rapid, secure image collection and routing to and from remote locations. Since joining the AG Mednet network, Alliance Radiology has increased operational productivity for its 50 radiologists, serving more than 30 hospitals and imaging centers.
Prior to AG Mednet, Alliance Radiology relied on point-to-point VPNs between its practice locations and hospital and imaging center clients. Now, they leverage AG Mednet’s HIPAA compliant platform, which fits easily, and without IT modification, into its existing and expanding practice.
“Crucial to our success is the reliable, secure and cost-effective transfer of images, which allows radiologists to handle reads from any of our clients at any time,” said Deb Palmisano, director of managed care for Alliance Radiology. “AG Mednet’s network expands our ability to best serve Kansas’ healthcare community, which is certainly an edge in such a competitive marketplace.”
AG Mednet’s extensive network is designed to route DICOM-based diagnostic image studies ranging from standard modalities—like CT, MRI, ultrasound, PET and digital x- ray—to the most advanced studies—such as IVUS and CTA/MRA. Studies of all sizes are transported lossless at the highest per-image speeds in the industry. This happens seamlessly across AG Mednet’s carrier-class network, which is monitored 24x7x365 and has a record of greater than 99.9999% uptime.
“AG Mednet was designed to enable teleradiology operations of all sizes to collect and transport diagnostic image studies according to their preferred workflows,” explained Abraham Gutman, founder and CEO of AG Mednet. “We’re pleased to be the platform on which Alliance Radiology will serve its expanding client base.”
