On-Demand PACS, EMR Catches On in California

April 23, 2008 - 7 Medical Systems signed eight new contracts for the quarter ended March 31, 2008 to introduce its on-demand PACS and electronic medical record (EMR) services into the western states of California, Idaho and Montana.

Three of the eight new customers have subscribed to the company's 7p Patient-Relationship-on-Demand (PRM-on-Demand) Suite for EMR, including groups specializing in internal medicine, children's respiratory and critical care and ob-gyn. Four community hospitals have signed on for the 7i Imaging-on-Demand (PACS) Suite.

Lastly, a software manufacturer has engaged 7 Medical as its back-end, on-demand computing provider. 7 Medical hosts the software imaging tool on servers in its data center and enables the software provider to offer their service to physicians over the Web. Physicians have 24/7 access to the online software tool for planning and treating brain tumors and neurological disorders.

The company says the set up depends on how well you integrate disparate systems, which is particularly hard for the small and medium healthcare facilities. The systems need to be based on open, best-of-breed technologies that enable different groups to work together efficiently, whether they're hospitals, imaging centers, radiology groups or medical clinics.

On-demand services are designed to remove barriers to entry for community hospitals, imaging centers, radiology groups and ambulatory clinics, getting them into PACS and EMR more cost-effectively.
