Metiscan Aims to Expand EHR Solution in Diagnostic Imaging

August 17, 2009 - Metiscan Inc., a holding company, announced that FirstView EHR, Inc. (FirstView) has launched a new outbound marketing strategy focused on expanding FirstView's footprint within the diagnostic imaging market.

FirstView provides end-to-end IT services for diagnostic imaging facilities including web-based electronic healthcare records (EHR), workflow efficiency, PACS administration, long-term archiving, professional IT services and strategic HL7 interoperability consulting. FirstView's CEO, Iain Shigeoka, Ph.D., holds the Control Specialist Certification for Health Language Seven (HL7) Version 2 standards.

FirstView launched its new outbound marketing strategy to better position itself to capitalize on a portion of the recently passed American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). The final package of $787 billion was signed into law by President Barack Obama on February 17, 2009. The plan allocates $20B to encourage the adoption of health information technology, including payments to physicians who can demonstrate they are using electronic heath records (EHR) systems. FirstView currently provides such healthcare IT systems and solutions to diagnostic imaging facilities.
