DR Systems and Mach7 Technologies announce global alliance
San Diego - Today DR Systems (San Diego, CA, www.drsys.com) and Mach7 Technologies (Burlington, VT, www.mach7t.com) have announced a global alliance between DR Systems and Mach7. Mach7 was recently recognized by Frost & Sullivan as the 2012 Global Enterprise Imaging Informatics Entrepreneurial Company of the Year.
"In Enterprise Imaging, there is no longer a clear distinction between intra-mural and extra-mural workflows. It takes a highly flexible and massively scalable workflow engine to configure and maintain today's dynamic healthcare IT environments." says Florent Saint-Clair, Vice President of Corporate Development for DR Systems. "This partnership opens up many exciting possibilities for our Enterprise-class customers who wish to increase the useful life of their existing infrastructure and IT solutions, yet extend their reach beyond their current technological boundaries. We are combining our 20 years of expertise and patented technology in diagnostics with the Keystone Engine's superb ability to unify diverse imaging workflows into one platform."
The DR Systems Unity Enterprise Imaging platform can scale from small imaging centers to large regional and national IDNs. Mach7's Keystone Engine will facilitate integration with complex Enterprise, multidisciplinary workflows in the large hospital and multi-facility segments, and will give customers an affordable path to VNA deployment. The same level of mature workflow efficiency Radiology and Cardiology have long benefited from is now accessible to all departments of a hospital that rely on medical images for diagnostics.
"We have found there are as many unique environments in Enterprise Imaging as there are healthcare enterprises. This diversity is a core challenge for our CIO customers, whose job it is to support their enterprise's IT growth, while promoting uniformity of solutions and configurations. They look to us, their vendor, to help them solve complex systems and workflow integrations not only within their four walls, but across many facilities spanning multiple geographies," said Saint-Clair.
"DR Systems' innovative technology and committed leadership to the Imaging market aligns with Mach7's commitment to providing world class solutions to customers worldwide," said John Memarian, General Manager at Mach7. "Our combined offering will bring to market a powerful solution addressing today's toughest IT challenges as it relates to department-specific workflow limitations and standardizations needed in IT storage, maintenance and sharing of clinical images as part of the patient's health records."
