Novarad,American Fork, Utah, is looking to the cloud—for PACS archiving. Following the trend of off-site, web based (“cloud”) archiving, the company has launched NOVAVAULT, a vendor-neutral PACS archiving service.

The new service provides on-site and off-site storage, as well as off-site disaster recovery and back up. Vendor neutrality technology makes the product compatible with any DICOM-compliant PACS.

The solution also includes modern essentials, such as a web-based administration console, management tools, and a referring physician portal option.

Paul Shumway, vice president at Novarad, stated in the press release, “With our new storage services offering, hospitals, clinics and imaging centers are no longer locked into large capital outlays for servers and hosting services….These hosted services provide all of the security and convenience, and because the services are managed by NOVARAD, pressure to keep systems and software upgraded and available can be eliminated from the responsibility of a facility’s internal IT department.”
