KeyBank Adds E-WIX Document Services To E-Business Offerings

EASTLAKE, Ohio - Feb. 27, 2003 - National Consulting and Development Corporation (NCD) has entered into a referral agreement with KeyBank that enables Key to offer NCD's services to its mid-market and large corporate clients. NCD's document conversion and repository services, called e-WIX, will be added to the existing suite of e-business solutions currently offered by Key.

The e-WIX solution allows organizations to convert paper files to electronic images at no cost, and then stores those files on NCD's secure servers. Users benefit by having instant access to this information via their computer, without the need to incur the additional expense of purchasing and supporting scanning hardware and software systems. It also further streamlines an organization's business processes by eliminating the time-consuming tasks of filing, photocopying, distributing and searching for hard-copy files.

"Our relationship with NCD allows us to offer our clients a top-tier technology solution that helps them manage their costs and enhance productivity," said Rob Martens, vice president for strategic alliance management at KeyBank. "The e-WIX solution is a great complement to Key's suite of business services."

Key's clients will join a host of existing e-WIX customers such as Parker Hannifin, Steris Corp., Lamson & Sessions, Erico, Riddell Corp., Fasteners for Retail and Mentor Lumber.

"Since no training is required, e-WIX is easy to use; plus, it's fast, highly secure and very inexpensive," said Chuck Patti, president, NCD. "We scan documents, write software and host systems - so our customers don't have to. Our agreement with Key will accelerate national growth for the e-WIX service, and provide Key's clients an excellent solution to the challenge of managing paper-based information."

About National Consulting and Development Corporation
NCD won the Lake County 2001 Innovative Product/Service Award for e-WIX. In addition to e-WIX, NCD offers document scanning, storage and destruction services as well as medical X-Ray film digitizing. For additional information, call 440-953-4488 and/or visit www.e-wix.com.

How To Safely Buy Pre-Owned Medical Systems
August 8, 2011

Very often there is a need to acquire additional capability in our health care facilities but there isn't always the funds to purchase a new, full-functioned, state of the art, diagnostic imaging system. Therefore, a decision must be made to determine if the additional services can be shifted to another facility or if it is critical or at least necessary to remain at your facility. The decision usually comes back that it needs to remain and options to accommodate it must be considered.

Digital Radiography - Electronic X-Ray - When, Why and How?

It seems like we have crossed the healthcare frontier and the only thing left to conquer is analog or film based x-ray systems. MRI's, CT's, Ultrasound, PET, Bone Densitometry, Mammography and most diagnostic imaging systems output digital data, that is except for Radiography and Fluoroscopy. Most existing systems are still analog and put out either x-ray film and/or analog video. Although most mobile C-arms are now being produced with digital output capability, most existing C-arms, X-ray systems and R/F systems have not yet been upgraded. When you consider that today there are more x-ray studies done than any other modality study, we should concede, we are way overdue in moving to electronic Rad and Fluoro. These upgrades should probably be initiated before all others at medical facilities today.

How To Get The Most From Your Radiology Dollar
June 3, 2011

The decisions are getting harder when we try and determine what our facility should invest in to provide the best patient care. 256 slice CTs, 3.0T MRIs, Digital Mammography, PACS Upgrade, EHR and so on....? We first try and determine our available budget or we are asked to submit a request for funds based upon current and future requirements, local competition and/or physician requirements. It is now necessary to take a long hard look at what is currently being utilized and determine how best to enhance capabilities. You probably begin to bring in vendors to discuss the capabilities of their new systems, as well as potential costs. If you are like many administrators, you immediately get a large blast of reality $$$$$$$. You instantly know that you will be limited to one purchase or less and it's possible funding won't be available for several years. If you are experiencing growth, patient count is increasing, test procedures are on the increase, and avaliable system time is becoming harder and harder to come by, then you know you will need to upgrade Radiology capacity.
