Navicent Health Success Story

Company profile

Located in Macon, Georgia, The Medical Center, Navicent Health (MCNH), is a designated Level I Trauma Center certified by the Georgia Trauma Commission and nationally verified by the American College of Surgeons (ACS). MCNH is a three-time Magnet-designated hospital for nursing excellence and is recognized as one of the premier teaching hospitals in the United States. MCNH, like many other healthcare facilities, originally relied upon CDs to receive patient images from outside facilities. The inherent unreliability of CDs and the associated delays, however, became an issue.
