PME today announced the signing of a 2 million agreement to provide its entire suite of software and services including its new Visage thin client PACS to Sydney based independent imaging provider Southern Radiology It is anticipated that in excess of 60 of the total deal value will be realised in this financial year with the balance being amortised over the next four years comprising service and e health transaction revenue Southern Radiology is a rapidly growing independent radiology provider with nine practices in the inner suburbs of Sydney Imaging services include general and dental x rays fluoroscopy screening ultrasound mammography with sub speciality services in magnetic resonance imaging MRI and multi slice CT scans including Cardiac CT As part of the deal Pro Medicus will install its Visage 7 PACS the company s next generation thin client streaming digital imaging solution and newly released Version 7 0 RIS at all Southern Radiology practices Once deployed the solution will cater for the full range of Practice Management and Clinical reporting functions including primary diagnosis in both 2 dimension and 3 dimension as well as image archiving and distribution The solution by virtue of its thin client technology will also enable Southern Radiology to be the first to provide referrers with the ability to remotely access view and manipulate their patients images in both 2D and 3D We are delighted to be in business partnership with such an innovative organisation as Southern Radiology said Pro Medicus Chief Executive Officer David Chambers This will be an excellent showcase for our entire suite of products and will provide us with a highly visible Sydney based reference site for our technology Dr Jonathan Seeff senior partner at Southern Radiology said Our practice is growing rapidly particularly in the areas of subspecialty reporting This means that our MRI or CT experts need to report cases from across our entire network regardless of which practice they are at that day We looked at a number of conventional 2D web based systems but soon realised that they could not provide us with the solution we require as some the data sets we need to report remotely can be up to a few gigabytes in size Pro Medicus with its thin client streaming technology enables us to view even the largest image data sets without having to move them across our network It has provided us with the technological step change that we were looking for not to mention that it will provide us with a strategic advantage in terms of how we make our images available to our referrers It is the next generation in digital imaging technology Www promedicus com Tags Healthcare IT Services New contract PME Pro Medicus Posted in ASX Company News No Comments Bathurst
