Lexmark Acquires PACSgear

Perceptive Software will be positioned to offer a vendor-neutral clinical content platform for capturing, managing, accessing and sharing patient imaging

October 7, 2013 — Lexmark International Inc. announced the acquisition of Pacsgear. Lexmark paid a cash purchase price of approximately $54 million.

Pacsgear will report into Perceptive Software. With this acquisition, Perceptive Software will be positioned to offer a vendor-neutral, standards-based clinical content platform for capturing, managing, accessing and sharing patient imaging information and related documents within healthcare facilities through an electronic medical records (EMR) and between facilities via Pacsgear technology.

The healthcare technology captures, manages and integrates documents, film and video, visible light and other images from any department with any picture archiving and communication system (PACS) or EMR. Healthcare personnel in specialties such as radiology, cardiology or orthopedics can connect to, view and share patient medical images and analyze results.

Pacsgear is synergistic with Perceptive Software’s existing healthcare content management and workflow solutions and vendor neutral archive (VNA) platform, enabling universal access to patient images, records and information, within and between different healthcare providers.

“As the healthcare industry continues to digitize its differing forms of content, from X-rays and MRIs to insurance forms, providers are struggling to deploy solutions that will help manage their unstructured information challenge,” said Paul Rooke, chairman and CEO, Lexmark. “The acquisition of Pacsgear further differentiates Lexmark’s solutions by better enabling healthcare organizations to capture and process digital content and then ensure it is connected with the applications and people that need it most so they can deliver the best patient care possible.”
