For more than 40 years, Arcadia has provided a full spectrum of quality imaging services to the San Gabriel Valley in southern California. Arcadia's board-certified radiologists have extensive experience and advanced specialty training. The entire group is committed to providing high quality service to patients and referring physicians.

"We have been working with AMICAS since 1987 and look forward to deepening our partnership," said Alicia Vasquez, practice administrator at Arcadia. "Since our practice is in California, one of the most regulated states in the country, we need to do what we can to manage the costs of running our practice, while continuing to provide excellent service to our patients. AMICAS is unique in its ability to help us serve our patients and run our business with their modern RIS/revenue cycle management platform."

"We are excited about our partnership with Arcadia," said Stephen Kahane MD, president, chief executive officer, and chairman of AMICAS. "We value Arcadia's real-world experience and insights -- and that of our other customers -- and look forward to tapping into their expertise as we continue to improve our radiology automation solutions."

Under the terms of the agreement, Arcadia will utilize AMICAS' Vision Series(TM) RIS, Vision Reach(TM), Vision Series Financials, and Insight Dashboards(TM) solutions.

Vision Series RIS, an industry leading RIS solution, drives administrative staff productivity and revenue opportunities and offers robust scheduling, charge capture, and workflow capabilities.

A zero install solution, Vision Reach allows radiology practices and departments to provide unparalleled service to referring physicians. Using common e-mail and secure messaging to deliver images, reports, and information to any e-mail-enabled device via a secure Web-based portal, Vision Reach also provides referring physicians with the ability to request orders for new studies via the new order entry module. Additionally, Vision Reach's Web-based design allows for easy integration with a variety of EMRs.

Vision Series Financials offers modern, Windows-based revenue cycle management technology to automate the identification and management of denials and follow-up workflows. Insight Dashboards is a Web-based business intelligence platform that provides access to customized, near real-time, easy-to-read data for key performance metrics and indicators, including both clinical and operational factors. This solution provides leadership with excellent visibility into operations.

"AMICAS has proven to be a vital partner to our practice, in particular with their insight on driving improvements to our business," said Vasquez. "Throughout this process, we have learned that AMICAS' vision for improving radiology workflow is completely in line with ours -- and we look forward to continuing to work with AMICAS."
