NightShift Radiology & UltraRAD Corporation Announce Partnership Agreement

West Berlin, New Jersey; November 15, 2006: UltraRAD Corporation and Nightshift Radiology announce a partnership agreement to supply high-quality and on-call radiology services. “NightShift Radiology recognized that UltraRAD’s efficient & effective user friendly software makes for a very complimentary solution to their existing product,” states Tom Goliash, CEO of UltraRAD Corporation. The 2 companies have been working together over the last 12 months to replace Nightshift’s previous PACS system with an UltraRAD solution.

The solution utilizes UltraRAD’s advanced DICOM UltraGateway, which supplies advanced JPEG2000 compression and optional encryption to route and manage the data flow from the customer site(s) to the multiple data centers and the information to the remote reading physicians. Each of the Doctors uses the UltraRAD Viewing Software running on the Gateway to allow the physician to have multiple and redundant methods of communicating images and information from the Central Data Centers or from the customer directly. “The real value for customers working with a NightShift & UltraRAD solution will be their responsive support and aggressive development to meet a customer’s needs. In the production world of on-call radiology services it’s important that workflow, data, and reporting be flexible and seamless,” states Bobby Ray Harris, Vice President of Sales & Marketing The open and flexible UltraGateway allows NightShift to build the routing and configuration of the data directly into their reporting and administration system. This makes it seamless to administer a scalable and growing radiology network, allowing simple modification and additions of Doctors, Customer Sites and Data Centers in a constantly demanding environment. This partnership helps UltraRAD provide a better workflow driven solution for its customers and build a solid infrastructure for Nightshift. As both companies agree, “It’s not just about integrating perfect systems; all DICOM is not created equally. There are frequent workflow and technology hurdles to overcome. However both UltraRAD & NightShift deliver a better solution because of this partnership and we are excited about this opportunity,” states Tom Goliash.
