Fujifilm Acquires Cardiology PACS Vendor

Jan. 11, 2007 - Fujifilm Medical Systems USA, Inc. announced today the acquisition of cardiology PACS vendor Problem Solving Concepts, Inc., the maker of ProSolv, as Fujifilm extends its enterprise information management approach to include cardiology and to provide a broader array of integrated technology solutions to a rapidly growing market.
“The need for more tightly integrated enterprise image and information systems, combined with the growing application of CT and MR into cardiac applications, necessitates that we continually evolve our products and the way we do business to most effectively provide solutions for our customers who are at the cutting edge of these changing markets,” said Makoto Kawaguchi, President and CEO of FUJIFILM Medical Systems USA. “The acquisition of ProSolv enables Fujifilm to strengthen our existing product portfolio and our foundation for growth, and exemplifies FUFJILM Corporation’s long term commitment in the healthcare arena.”
The Indianapolis-based company will now be known as ProSolv CardioVascular, a FUJIFILM Company, and will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary.
