Major Image Management Vendor Expands National Sales Channel Efforts
RIDGEFIELD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 15, 2012-- Mid-Atlantic Telerad has been appointed distributor in Virginia, Maryland and Delaware for CoActiv Medical's family of PACS, RIS and cloud-based digital archiving products. The experienced, highly regarded distributor will also focus on CoActiv sales to US government agencies across the country.
Mid-Atlantic Telerad was among the first distributors to focus on digital imaging and teleradiology technology and has been an acknowledged expert in the field since the company's founding in 1993.
Also noted for its system integration expertise, Mid-Atlantic has been a reseller and integration resource to a large number of hospitals, clinics and physician practices in its geographic area for almost 20 years. In addition, it has developed digital imaging systems for the government and military agencies at every level, including the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and FEMA.
According to James Whittaker, President of Mid-Atlantic Telerad, "We were looking for a simple-to-use but comprehensive image management solution with advanced features. CoActiv's PACS, RIS and cloud-based archiving fit the bill. We were extremely impressed with the EXAM-PACS solution's simple user interface controlling a full range of advanced features. The PACS can archive not only DICOM data, but also all imaging-related information in a variety of formats into a single patient file. The system supports breast tomosynthesis, breast specific gamma imaging (BSGI), ultrasound streaming and other advanced functionalities." Whittaker also adds that CoActiv's cloud-based archiving is housed in mirrored Tier IV data centers featuring the highest level of HIPAA compliance and security. Its reasonable pricing and excellent value proposition add to the appeal.
Frank Baker, CoActiv's Vice President of Sales, comments, "Mid-Atlantic will be an extremely valuable new resource that will enable CoActiv to expand geographically and to enter the government contract market. Our new distributor's leadership in the digital imaging arena and its commitment to offering the highest level of technology offerings and service makes this an excellent, mutually beneficial relationship." Noting that CoActiv has recently embarked on a major effort to open up new sales opportunities and to expand geographically through carefully selected distribution channels, Baker says that the company is committed to supporting resellers through aggressive advertising and sales support. "We believe that distributor and dealer relationships should be mutually beneficial, in which each party is committed to enabling the other's success," he says.
As part of its ongoing commitment to offering the latest technologies, CoActiv also recently debuted EXAM-BROWSER(TM), a zero-footprint web-based image viewer compatible with a full range of mobile devices.
It also recently announced compatibility with the Kindle Fire, enabling anywhere, anytime viewing of all 2D, MPR, and 3D exams on an important new pocket-sized tablet. Additionally, through a new sales alliance with PenRad, CoActiv EXAM-PACS provides an optional advanced, integrated image and information management solution for mammography exams.
"Mid-Atlantic is widely recognized for its expertise and excellent customer relationships, including its success with winning government contracts," says Ed Heere, president and CEO of CoActiv. "Our shared commitment to technological innovation makes us ideal business associates. We look forward to a long and successful relationship with the company."
