November 5, 2008 – McKesson said today that it has signed a distribution agreement with Swissray International Inc. to sell Swissray’s DR technology in addition to the Horizon Medical Imaging PACS.
Together the systems provide imaging departments and centers with enhanced workflow and performance capabilities to speed the patient care process, according to McKesson.
“McKesson is pleased to count Swissray as one of our valued imaging partners,’” said Rod O’Reilly, vice president and general manager of McKesson’s Medical Imaging Group. “With the Swissray DR, we can provide an end-to-end digital solution for the most common modality and procedure types, while taking full advantage of the inherent workflow features in Horizon Medical Imaging. This is particularly valuable in imaging areas where speed and performance are key, such as emergency rooms and pediatric-focused facilities.”
