AMICAS SHOWCASES VENDOR-NEUTRAL ARCHIVE Solutions AT SIIM 2009
June 4, 2009 — AMICAS, Inc., an image and information management solutions company, today announced that it will be showcasing AMICAS Enterprise Content Manager, a vendor-neutral archive solution designed to lower the total cost of ownership of an enterprise image management infrastructure. AMICAS will be showcasing Enterprise
Content Manager at the SIIM 2009 Annual Meeting in Charlotte, N.C., from June 4 to 7. The company’s booth number is 729.
AMICAS Enterprise Content Manager is an enterprise clinical image management and information storage platform. Successfully deployed at many major hospitals and healthcare systems throughout the country, Enterprise Content Manager offers a vendor-neutral archive with proven scalability and interoperability capabilities that supports a broad collection of comprehensive electronic medical record (EMR) deployments.
“The demands on the infrastructure of imaging providers have never been more intense,” said Paul Merrild, senior vice president of marketing and business development at AMICAS. "Given the impact of higher exam volumes and an explosion in the average size of imaging exams, the pressure to scale and support multiple imaging departments with a standards-based solution that is integrated with the provider’s overall EMR strategy has never been more acute.”
“AMICAS’ vendor-neutral archive solution addresses these problems with a proven, standards-based infrastructure that supports multiple departmental PACS solutions — all while lowering the total cost of ownership of an imaging infrastructure over time,” said Merrild.
Key features of the Enterprise Content Manager platform include:
Massive scalability with proven performance managing billions of exams throughout the country — representing petabytes of storage — via a high-availability architecture.
Proven compatibility as a vendor-neutral solution with many major radiology and cardiology PACS vendors, which offers a lower total cost of ownership for the enterprise.
A highly compliant, standards-based architecture with strict adherence to the IHE framework and protocols, which helps providers avoid costly data migrations as clinician preferences for departmental solutions change.
Proven support for numerous provider EMR solutions at many institutions, including some of the largest healthcare systems in the country.
In addition to showcasing the Enterprise Content Manager solution at the SIIM annual meeting, AMICAS will highlight its high return on investment image and information management solution suite, including:
AMICAS PACS, which drives significant improvements in radiologist productivity while enabling improvements in the quality of care.
AMICAS VERICIS, which drives efficiency in cardiovascular imaging and reporting workflow.
AMICAS Documents, which supports a paperless operation that streamlines workflow, reduces expenses, increases FTE productivity and collections, and facilitates HIPAA compliance.
AMICAS Reach, which allows radiology practices and departments to provide unparalleled service to referring physicians via the support of image and report communications as well as follow-up order entry/capture.
AMICAS RadStream, which reduces medical-legal risk by automating and documenting critical results communications.
AMICAS RIS, which drives administrative staff productivity and revenue opportunities.
“The SIIM annual meeting provides the perfect environment for AMICAS to share its image and information management solutions with the imaging community,” said Merrild. “SIIM members experience daily challenges in their imaging workflow, and coming to the SIIM annual meeting and sharing our solutions with the market gives AMICAS the opportunity to learn about these challenges and demonstrate how our solutions can help attendees meet their goals and objectives.”
