TeraMedica, Inc. announced that following the signing of an agreement

between the parties on December 16th, 2011, Jefferson Radiology, P.C.

will implement TeraMedica's Evercore@ Enterprise Vendor Neutral

Architecture (VNA) in early 2012. Specifically, Jefferson Radiology

will utilize TeraMedica's Evercore Smartstore DICOM module. The

complete deployment includes eleven regional imaging facilities

throughout Connecticut.

"Jefferson Radiology sought out vendor neutral architecture to gain

visibility into all of their customer data, given the fact they

provide primary diagnostic reading for several hospitals in the area,"

said Jim Prekop, TeraMedica's President and CEO. "By supporting a

statewide image-sharing initiative, TeraMedica's Evercore Clinical

Enterprise Suite will enable Jefferson Radiology to reach a higher

level of patient care."

Added Prekop: "This implementation was driven by Jefferson Radiology

Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Michael L. Quinn, who wanted to

integrate studies throughout Jefferson Radiology's multiple

facilities. By utilizing Evercore, Jefferson Radiology should see

immediate consolidation of storage costs, increased control of their

data as well as reduced cost of ownership."

"Our physicians provide a significant level of clinical depth and

breadth of radiology expertise," said Quinn. "Aligned with the goal of

employing the most sophisticated, state-of-the-art technology,

Jefferson has the only advanced imaging analysis and 3D lab in the

state, and is one of a few such advanced facilities in the country. It

only makes sense that we also implement Evercore, a highly-regarded

vendor neutral architecture, to allow our subspecialty radiologists

the ability to work more accurately and provide a better product to

our referring physicians."

Evercore integrates and manages patient-centric clinical content in

the clinical and research settings across wide geographies, including

standard DICOM objects. Evercore also possesses the ability to

natively manage and distribute beyond DICOM using global standards

such as MPG, JPG, PDF and many other critical clinical content such as

treatment plans for cancer care or vital reports in non-standard


TeraMedica's patented Smartstore module intelligently manages the

total image lifecycle of DICOM and beyond. The Univision module

provides a multi-layer, zero-download image viewer, with seamless

integration to any EMR/EHR/PHR/RHIO. TeraMedica's vendor-independent

platform connects multiple PACS to any storage system, thus ending

cumbersome data migration.
