November 7, 2016 — Vital Images Inc. (Vital) has entered into an agreement to acquire Karos Health (Karos), an innovative global healthcare informatics company.

The acquisition will allow Vital and Karos to offer customers and OEM partners a robust imaging and informatics solution-set. The combined technologies provide a customer-centric, modular platform that allows hospital systems to solve a broad set of enterprise imaging challenges without requiring large-scale, disruptive picture archiving and communication system (PACS) replacement of existing systems. The combined organizations will build on Karos’ experience in enabling healthcare interoperability, while Vital will implement its strengths in advanced visualization, diagnostic viewing and image-processing algorithms to support personalized medicine.

The non-disruptive approach championed by both Vital and Karos enables hospital systems to optimize diagnostic imaging workflows and deliver enterprise-wide imaging information to the electronic medical record (EMR), helping to improve both patient and business outcomes.
