Aspyra, Allscripts Enter Agreement to Sell PACS, RIS

March 9, 2009 - Aspyra Inc. entered into a nonexclusive letter of agreement with Allscripts, allowing Allscripts to promote Aspyra’s laboratory (LIS) and radiology (RIS) information systems, and Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS) solutions to new and existing Allscripts customers.

The reciprocal agreement also allows Aspyra to promote Allscripts’ practice management (PM), electronic medical record (EMR), revenue cycle management (RCM) and emergency department solutions nationally to new and existing Aspyra customers.

Allscripts uses innovation technology to bring health to healthcare. More than 150,000 physicians utilize Allscripts to improve the health of their patients and their bottom line. Aspyra will resell the Allscripts Professional PM and EMR, MyWay EM, PayerPath RCM and Allscripts Emergency Department solutions with its CyberLAB LIS, CyberRAD RIS, AccessNET PACS, AccessRAD RIS/PACS and AccessMED Specialty PACS solutions.

Aspyra’s wide range of departmental solutions, including LIS, RIS, PACS and integrated RIS/PACS improve access to clinical data, images and reports, as well as provide organizations with new channels to streamline workflow, boost efficiency and reduce costs. The agreement coincides with the recent signing of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act into law, which encourages healthcare organizations to adopt healthcare IT technology, establish regional health information exchange networks and ensure the safety of critical patient data.

“As more healthcare organizations are motivated to adopt electronic healthcare technology with federal financial incentives, Aspyra is excited to work with Allscripts in offering combined solutions that improve the level of patient care, as well as provide a greater return on investment,” stated Robert Pruter, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Aspyra. He continued, “With functional data sharing capabilities currently in place at joint customer sites, we have proven the ability to work together successfully in providing a fully integrated electronic patient record.”

According to Kelley Schudy, vice president of Channel Sales for Allscripts, at least 60 percent of patient’s electronic medical record consists of data elements generated by clinical systems.

The 12-month letter of agreement became effective February 3, 2009.

2-D and 3-D digital breast images

Since the widespread adoption of digital imaging and PACS, referring physicians seldom visit radiology reading rooms, substantially reducing a major source of feedback for radiologists.

A software module to be described April 5 at the SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium has been providing that feedback for radiologists interpreting breast images at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
