November 26, 2021, MIAMI, FL – Premier Radiology Services, a U.S.-based teleradiology services provider, today announced a long-term contract extension with RamSoft, providing Premier Radiology Services with software that helped change their workflow to improve efficiency and patient care.

“We hope to continue to develop a stronger platform that allows us to further grow our business. Our partnership lets us focus on serving our patients instead of thinking about our technology,” said Ryan Furlough, CTO at Premier Radiology Services.

The technology investments the teleradiology company made were one of the strategies that propelled Premier Radiology Services’ rapid growth. “Our ongoing investment into our technology partners has allowed us to provide a stable and scalable platform to take on new business at a ‘right’ cost model that supports the competitive teleradiology market,” said Furlough.

The company said it was key to have a very scalable product like RamSoft during its significant growth period. “We are able to set up new user accounts, build new clients, and integrate DICOM and HL7 connections on our own with RamSoft’s PowerServer™ platform. Scalability is always an important requirement for a business like our own, as we are processing thousands of studies per day. The software has scaled with us just by adding appropriate server resources to handle the system load,” said Furlough.

As RamSoft has been developing medical imaging software for more than 27 years, Premier Radiology Services is confident that they are working with a long-term partner that has deep expertise in the teleradiology space. “This relationship provides stability and the technology in a way that lets us exchange studies with other RamSoft clients in an accelerated fashion without having to engage IT resources,” said Furlough.

Indeed, Premier Radiology Services has recommended RamSoft to several of its clients over the years. “I have been involved with Premier Radiology Services, even before I joined RamSoft. My positive experience and interactions with them lead me to introducing them to RamSoft. I’m very proud of their continued success,” said Greg Smith, Regional Sales Manager at RamSoft.

As well as expanding their business significantly, Premier Radiology Services has successfully deployed a high availability solution with RamSoft’s software. This has allowed them to cut over to a secondary server with a Recovery Time Objective (RTO) of less than 30 minutes and a Recovery Point Objective (RPO) that has no loss of data. The company can also develop highly customized workflows to meet the needs of their clients through DICOM scripting and HL7 integration. The company is keen on improving their solution as their business grows.

“Radiology is an ever-evolving industry and we want to work with partners who understand what is needed to support teleradiology workflows and how to keep them as efficient as possible. Our expansion over the past years has shown that our partnership with RamSoft has been a successful relationship thus far as we’ve seen a growth in volume and physician staff,” said Furlough.

Premier Radiology Services looks forward to meeting visitors and learning about their needs at booth #4106 at RSNA. To learn more about RamSoft’s solutions, visit booth #1715.
