Specialty Networks, a brief history

Specialty Networks was founded in 2004 as an application services provider for Picture Archive and Communication Systems (PACS). Over the course of that first year Specialty Networks grew to be a provider of radiology information systems (RIS), digital transcription services and Enterprise Practice Management solutions (EPM). Since that time Specialty Networks has performed 16 installations of its radiology software imaging solution. These clients range from a small imaging center with a single modality to the complex imaging environment of a 300 bed community hospital. Specialty Networks has the honor and distinction of being the first provider in the world to offer a fully integrated solution of RIS, PACS, EPM and voice recognition transcription services. 

Specialty Networks differentiates itself by being able to provide this radiology software suite on an as used basis, thus eliminating the typical large capital investment required for such a venture to implement electronic efficiency. Specialty Networks only requires that the client provide the connectivity to our array of servers and network. The software applications that are provided to our clients we believe are industry leaders. Two of the four applications provided (RIS & EPM) can boast Best of KLAS awards. We also pride ourselves in the experience of our personnel. Specialty Networks CEO, James Busch, has earned added qualification in the field of Radiology Informatics from Harvard Medical School. In addition Specialty Networks RIS/PACS/EPM Systems Administrator, Janice Cooke, has over 20 years of experience in the field and had the privilege to work on one of the first PACS to be used in the world. Together this experience can be invaluable to our partners in order to bring success to their imaging enterprise.
