Kaiser Permanente of Georgia, a division of the Kaiser Permanente national managed care organization, has selected Accelarad’s SeeMyRadiology.com (Atlanta) cloud-based imaging platform for the communication of imaging exams to their hospitalists and referring practices in Metro Atlanta. Using SeeMyRadiology.com’s single, comprehensive Web portal, doctors will be able to access and view images over the Internet in full diagnostic quality. Kaiser Permanente also will use the advanced SeeMyRadiology.com cloud-based imaging platform, which requires no special client-side software, to manage and access all the images that enter the managed care system through the SeeMyRadiology.com portal.

The patient care arm of Kaiser Permanente, the Southeast Permanente Medical Group Inc. comprises more than 20 facilities in Georgia, served by more than 300 physicians. Kaiser Permanente moves patients through a range of specialized medical facilities and hospitals to deliver quality specialized care in Georgia. Kaiser Permanente has routinely ranked in the top 15 health plans by U.S. News & World Report and has ranked as one of the nation’s top providers based on clinical quality data and NCQA accreditation scores.
