January 20, 2011 – Telemis, the specialist in medical imaging solutions, has further consolidated its position in Italy with the acquisition of Micromedica Ltd, one of the country’s leading picture archiving and communication system (PACS) vendors.
Under the terms of the Telemis acquisition, Micromedica becomes part of the Telemis Group and Gian Paolo Robutti, the Micromedica managing director, takes the position of general manager for Telemis in Italy.
Telemis extended its operations into Italy in 2009 with the opening of Telemis Italia SRL. The acquisition of Micromedica, which is in line with the Telemis strategy to support the growth of PACS and MACS (Multimedia Archiving and Communication System) markets in Europe, will strengthen the sales and technical support capabilities the company offers Italian customers.
Turin-based Micromedica has specialized in the storage and management of radiology images since it was founded in 1975. Since then the company has built an extensive base of customers that includes some of Northern Italy’s largest public hospitals.
