"Today's radiology practices and departments are focused on providing excellent clinical care while responding to a significant increase in radiology exam volumes and complexity," said Paul Merrild, vice president of marketing at AMICAS. "At SIIM, AMICAS is showcasing solutions to provide automation support for order entry, the communication of positive findings, personalized workflow management, and business intelligence."

The complete AMICAS automation suite includes an integrated, yet modular, RIS, PACS, teleradiology, document management, and revenue cycle management platform for radiology groups and practices of all sizes as well as other ambulatory imaging businesses and hospitals.

AMICAS will highlight its high return on investment image and information management solution suite, including:

-- Vision Series(TM) PACS, which drives clinical staff productivity with a

low total cost of ownership. This completely Web-based PACS offers

personalized workflow via the exclusive RealTime Worklist(TM), which

provides a customizable paperless patient routing and internal

communication system.

-- Vision Series RIS, which drives administrative staff productivity and

revenue opportunities. This industry leading ambulatory RIS solution

offers robust scheduling, charge capture, and workflow capabilities.

-- Vision Reach(TM), which allows radiology practices and departments to

provide unparalleled service to referring physicians. This new zero

install solution uses 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.

-- RadStream(TM), which reduces medical-legal risk by automating and

documenting critical results communications. RadStream also automates

the prioritization of imaging exams based on a "most likely to

interrupt" method, which has been shown to dramatically increase

radiologist productivity.

-- Vision Series Financials, which offers modern, Windows-based technology

to automate the identification and management of denials and follow-up

workflows, combines a modern, recently revamped architecture with

pioneering functionality to streamline the latest techniques for

advanced revenue cycle management.

-- Insight Dashboards(TM), which is a Web-based business intelligence

platform, 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.

Mark Halsted MD, associate professor of radiology and chief of the Radiology Informatics Research Core at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, where RadStream was originally designed and developed, will present at SIIM on "Meeting the Joint Commission's 2008 National Patient Safety Goals: An Outcomes Study Assessing Improvement in Rate of Documentation of Critical Radiology Results Conveyance Brokered by a Novel Software System." Dr. Halsted's presentation will take place on Friday, May 16, during the 1:15 to 2:45 p.m. session called "TRIP(TM) I: GUIs and Quality/Safety."

"AMICAS invests a significant portion of our operating budget in research and development to ensure a healthy pipeline of innovation," said Mr. Merrild. "Our focus on investment ensures that our customers will benefit from continued industry leading innovation and superior value."
