FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. --(Business Wire)--
announced today that Desert Imaging (DI) (El Paso, TX) has implemented
RAD cloud-based radiology IT platform to manage imaging workflow for
its growing multi-site imaging practice. DI's two outpatient imaging
centers and mobile mammography suites are benefitting from AbbaDox RAD's

"After a thorough survey of the marketplace, we found that IDS provides
a single, turnkey suite of solutions that can seamlessly manage our

"IDS not only provided us with superior technoloy," adds Arizpe, "but
their dedication to customer service is outstanding."
The DI installation took advantage of the innovative AbbaDox Integration
Cloud Service to streamline the HL7 implementation process. "All set up

IDS as a turnkey service that relied on its existing HL7 building
blocks. The entire project was virtually plug-and-play with minimal
disruption in our workflow," Arizpe notes. DI was up-and-running with
state-of-the-art functionality in weeks.

more and more medical facilities are recognizing the benefits of
cloud-based enterprise solutions. They realize that the outpatient
imaging space has changed with a focus on a high level of service and
patient satisfaction like never before. AbbaDox cloud offers unmatched
flexibility with intuitive workflows and collaboration tools, and

Desert Imaging, which is committed to leveraging the latest technologies
for the benefit of patient care and to grow their patient base."
Dagan notes that IDS cloud-based infrastructure makes the number of
client imaging locations irrelevant. "We have a growing number of users
around the country that rely on AbbaDox RAD and the IDS cloud as their
operational focal hub for multiple sites. IDS carefully manages all
technology, which resides at the Terremark NAP of the Americas data
Today, the fully integrated AbbaDox RAD cloud-based product suite

results communication, image sharing and physician communication for
DI's broad range of state-of-the-art exams. These include MRI, CT,
PET-CT, bone density, fluoroscopy, digital mammography, nuclear
medicine, ultrasound, and x-ray. AbbaDox RAD technology also plays a key
role in the management of the practice's mobile mammography service,
which reaches out to the community with a high-tech digital breast
imaging suite on wheels.
Through the AbbaDox RIS, exam scheduling is accessible across all
facilities and the mobile installation. A modality worklist speeds
workflow and assures data accuracy. Voice2Dox provides integrated speech
recognition and a full range of customized, searchable templates.

A valuable feature for referring physicians is the ability to access
final results, diagnostic DICOM images and historical reports quickly
