St. Paul Radiology is a private 84-radiologist practice providing reading services for more than one million annual exams at seven imaging centers, multiple specialty clinics, and eleven hospitals throughout the upper Midwest. St. Paul Radiology, a full-service radiology practice, provides leading-edge diagnostic imaging and interventional radiology services.

"Our partnership with AMICAS is a critical part of our strategy at St. Paul Radiology," said Mark Kleinschmidt, chief executive officer of St. Paul Radiology. "In order to realize our growth objectives, we need access to both state-of-the-art technology and a partner that truly understands the dynamics of the market for radiology practices. After a lengthy search where we evaluated nearly 20 vendors, AMICAS clearly stood out in the market on both of these fronts."

St. Paul Radiology will utilize new, Web-based technology for integrated scheduling, reading, marketing, teleradiology, customer service, and results distribution initiatives. Included in the partnership deal are AMICAS RIS(TM), AMICAS PACS(TM), AMICAS Teleradiology(TM), AMICAS RadStream(TM), and AMICAS Reach(TM) solutions. The AMICAS solution will be tightly integrated with NightHawk Radiology Services' TALON(TM) Clinical Workflow Solution, which is already in use within St. Paul Radiology. This combination will create a powerful workflow solution that leverages the best technology from both organizations.

"We are a very large radiology practice that provides reading services for a highly heterogeneous imaging environment," said Joseph H. Tashjian MD, president of St. Paul Radiology. "AMICAS' excellent technology platform integrates with our existing infrastructure, which is essential to our practice delivering optimal patient care while achieving maximum productivity levels. With AMICAS, we found a solution that will drive productivity for our radiologists by allowing them to read from a single worklist and viewer with excellent clinical tools - regardless of the physical location of the patient or the radiologist.

"The AMICAS solution will also equip St. Paul Radiology with an excellent toolset to communicate more efficiently with our referring physicians and other providers," said Dr. Tashjian. "This improved communication will further enhance our ability to provide high quality diagnoses in a timely manner."

As 100 percent Web-based solutions, AMICAS RIS, AMICAS PACS, AMICAS Teleradiology, AMICAS RadStream, and AMICAS Reach were designed to enable radiology groups to realize the benefits of a uniform, flexible, and powerful workflow. This design helps radiology groups to realize a superior return on investment by maximizing the use of existing resources and by establishing a standardized and uniform work environment for radiologists.

"We are very excited about partnering with St. Paul Radiology, one of the largest and most progressive radiology groups in the country," said Stephen Kahane MD, president, chief executive officer, and chairman of AMICAS. "Our partnership with St. Paul Radiology will help us continue to solve the most challenging and important workflow problems for radiology practices across the country today and in the future."
