ONRAD Announces Successful Teleradiology Implementation at Cascade Medical Center

February 15, 2011 – ONRAD is pleased to announce a successful implementation of teleradiology services at Cascade Medical Center in Leavenworth, WA.  ONRAD currently provides 24/7 teleradiology services to the medical center.

“Overall, we couldn’t be more pleased with our decision to partner with ONRAD.  In a small, rural ‘critical access hospital’ setting like ours, having an on-site radiologist isn’t feasible or cost effective,” said Scott Mitchell, Director of Radiology at Cascade Medical Center.  “ONRAD teleradiology service offers the next best thing for our organization.  The reports are detailed and comprehensive, and turn-around time is truly impressive; generally within 20 or 30 minutes for STAT cases, and under an hour for routine out-patient exams.” 

ONRAD’s services are a great fit for Cascade, as well as other rural or critical access hospitals, because the teleradiology solutions are easily customized to each customer’s needs.  ONRAD can provide superior turnaround times for preliminary, final, or subspecialty reports at any hour.  Customer support is also available 24/7 and Mr. Mitchell says “the customer support staff is organized, professional and courteous, and a radiologist is always available for phone consultations with our medical staff.”  

“I am very happy to know that we have been able to meet the needs of Cascade Medical Center,” said Samuel Salen, MD, President and CEO of ONRAD.  “It’s especially important because the local residents will have access to radiology services right in their local community.  I look forward to a continued partnership with Cascade Medical Center.”
