Hitachi to Acquire VidiStar

January 23, 2018 — Hitachi Healthcare Americas Corp. announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire VidiStar, a Greenville, S.C.-based company focused on how doctors review and report on diagnostic exams to drive productivity, portability, and improved communication and clinical decision making. Hitachi expects that the acquisition of VidiStar will advance the company's informatics strategy and analytics capabilities to improve workflow and intelligence for physicians, particularly with those providers conducting diagnostic ultrasound examinations.

"VidiStar has developed a cloud-based diagnostic viewer and customizable structured reporting solution for medical imaging and clinical decision support. With VidiStar, physicians can interpret exams over the web and deliver improved visualization and timely results with the extended care teams,” said William Burns, senior VP, Hitachi Healthcare Americas.

Structured reporting can help standardize and improve the quality of clinical reports and streamline communication among care teams while reducing errors. Advanced analytics and data mining can help identify key value drivers, improve decision making and ensure that providers and healthcare professionals are informed and efficient in their mission to deliver high-quality care.

Upon completion of the transaction, VidiStar and its employees will become part of the Hitachi Healthcare Americas business group within Hitachi. VidiStar will maintain its current headquarters office in Greenville.
