"AMICAS has a proven track record of successfully implementing our PACS at more than 100 MEDITECH facilities across the country," said Paul Merrild, vice president of marketing at AMICAS. "Many facilities throughout the country have made an investment in MEDITECH -- and AMICAS allows them to fully leverage their investment when they choose our Vision Series PACS."

AMICAS is focused on developing solutions that allow facilities running a MEDITECH health information system to realize superior integration and value from their investment with MEDITECH. Complementing MEDITECH's core applications, the AMICAS product suite includes the following functionality:

-- Vision Series PACS offers the capability to securely launch an

encrypted image viewer that is embedded within numerous MEDITECH

products, including PCI and EMR. This allows users in other MEDITECH

applications to be "image-aware" without disrupting their daily

workflow, seamlessly launching the AMICAS products on an as-needed


-- Vision Watch(TM) offers reporting functionality that complements the

tools found in the MEDITECH RIS. These capabilities empower radiology

administrators with easily accessible information required to run their

departments and facilities effectively, such as data on referring

physician volume reports, imaging equipment utilization, and HIPAA

reporting needs -- all in a Web-based, drill-down, "point and click"

user interface.

-- Vision Series PACS includes a bi-directional interface with all

MEDITECH platforms. This interface returns relevant clinical data to

radiologists at their PACS workstations in order to enhance their

ability to diagnose their patients, thus increasing their efficiency

and that of the entire radiology department or facility.

"AMICAS' dedication to making MEDITECH customers successful extends beyond technical capabilities. We have invested, and will continue to invest, in products and services that complement those provided by MEDITECH. We focus on being collaborative and cooperative with MEDITECH for the benefit of our mutual customers. We believe this focus differentiates us from other PACS companies in the market," said Mr. Merrild.
