Spring Imaging Center Serves Up Milestone Contract for OnPointConcerted Sales and Marketing Effort Yields Results for the MRI Quality Assurance ProviderGlobeNewswire
MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 3, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OnPoint Medical Diagnostics (OTCQB:ONMD) has seen a 300% increase in imaging providers using their MRI quality assurance service during the second quarter of 2012. This rapid adoption is the result of a concerted sales and marketing effort designed to increase the customer base of OnPoint's software technology.
"We put the marketing programs and sales people in place in Q1 of this year and aggressively worked toward our goal of increasing product adoption in Q2," states William Cavanaugh, CEO of OnPoint. "It's exciting to see such a positive trend resulting from this effort. I believe this is a reflection of the high number of medical imaging organizations in the U.S., like Spring Imaging Center, dedicated to quality."
Spring Imaging Center represents the 40th imaging provider to utilize OnPoint's MRI quality assurance software. OnPoint now has over 58 MRI scanners sending QA studies to the cloud and actively manages over 60,000 images online for its customers. The system's image viewer, real-time dashboards, analytics and trending charts are fully deployed in the cloud, connecting physicist and service teams to better address MRI image degradation issues before they impact patient care.
"Being part of a larger imaging network, we immediately saw the efficiency benefit of OnPoint's web-based platform for monitoring our MRI QA," states Andy Abad and Regional Lead Imaging Supervisor of Spring Imaging Center. "We now have one centralized, online location to check the QA status of all our MRI scanners in all of our centers. The information is automated, accurate and surpasses our weekly requirements for American College of Radiology (ACR) accreditation."
Spring Imaging Center is part of the Deerbrook Diagnostic and Imaging Center network of five centers in the Houston, Texas metro area. OnPoint's MRI quality assurance software is available on a month-to-month basis or as an annual subscription. For more information, visit www.onpointmd.com.
