February 5, 2008 – Barco inked an agreement with Baptist Memorial Health Care to provide diagnostic display systems to all of its 15 affiliate hospitals in the mid-South of the U.S., providing direct access to its technical support team and establishing a dedicated, in-house Baptist Memorial training and support team.
In return, Baptist Memorial will become a national reference/luminary site and use Barco as the preferred supplier of display technology products throughout Baptist Memorial hospitals. The display solutions will be purchased through third party distribution and OEM partners.
The agreement is set to commence immediately and extends to 2012. It includes Barco’s Coronis and Nio display systems, both presenting radiologists with consistent, high-quality images for many years. Furthermore, the deal comprises Barco’s innovative softcopy QA solution, MediCal QAWeb, which guarantees maximum diagnostic confidence and uptime of PACS display systems by providing automated DICOM calibration, quality assurance, display asset management, problem solving and reporting.
