"RIA is impressed with AMICAS' understanding of the complexities in delivering consistent, quality service in an outpatient imaging business," said Ed Field, director of outpatient services at RIA. "We researched many other options and felt AMICAS was the best partner to help us achieve our goal of delivering better customer service and more integrated systems support."

Under the terms of the agreement, RIA will utilize new modular, Web-based technology to customize an integrated scheduling, billing, marketing, and tracking system. Included in the partnership deal are AMICAS Vision Series(TM) RIS, Vision Reach(TM), Insight Dashboards(TM), and Vision Series Document Management solutions.

Vision Series RIS, which is completely Web-based, provides best-in-class charge capture, patient flow monitoring, mammography tracking, as well as the ability to fax and e-mail results to referring physicians. Vision Reach is an innovative zero client results distribution tool and portal designed specifically for referring physicians.

Insight Dashboards, 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. An enterprise solution, Vision Series Document Management provides electronic capture, storage, and management of every document in an independent radiology business.

"We are very pleased to take our partnership with RIA to the next level," said Stephen Kahane MD, president, chief executive officer, and chairman of AMICAS. "RIA is one of the largest and most advanced radiology groups in the country but can benefit greatly from smarter, more integrated automation of its practice. At the same time, AMICAS will learn from RIA and continue to refine our understanding of radiology businesses' needs as we continue to develop high performance automation solutions."
