Healthinc is a leading provider of digital medical imaging solutions and radiology information management in Australia. Established in 2002, Healthinc supports more than 350 sites throughout Australia with cutting edge technology and end-to-end solutions that are backed by quality service and support.

AMICAS will offer its acclaimed image management solutions to the Australian marketplace through an exclusive distribution partnership with Healthinc. The AMICAS solution suite will be tightly integrated with Healthinc's market leading OCCAM RIS and fully supported locally by Healthinc's experienced sales, marketing, services, and support teams.

"Healthinc is a proven leader in the Australian radiology marketplace, with a large loyal customer base and a very impressive leadership team," said Stephen Kahane, president, chief executive officer, and chairman of AMICAS.

"The automation needs for the practice of radiology in Australia are very similar to those in the United States. AMICAS' solutions focus on critical issues to radiology, including servicing referring physicians, managing critical results, and offering intrinsic clinical tools for mammography and 3D. Our solutions have had a proven impact on the business of imaging in the United States and we expect these solutions to be well adopted in Australia," said Dr. Kahane.

Healthinc will be distributing AMICAS PACS Version 6.0, which introduces the next generation of AMICAS PACS. Version 6.0 combines the intuitive, easy-to-use, Web-based design of previous versions of AMICAS PACS with major enhancements to the image viewing toolset. Complementing the industry leading, workload balancing RealTime Worklist(TM), Version 6.0 introduces the Halo Viewer(TM), which includes advances in functionality aimed at increasing radiologist productivity and designed to help improve the quality of reading.

Also included in this partnership agreement is Healthinc's distribution of AMICAS Reach, which allows radiology practices and departments to provide unparalleled connectivity with - and service to - referring physicians, and AMICAS RadStream, which helps reduce medical-legal risk by automating and documenting critical results communications.

"Our partnership with AMICAS provides an immense opportunity for us to deploy a completely Web-based solution that has unparalleled functionality and offers a level of service to referring physician that is unmatched," said Michael Beck, managing director of Healthinc. "When seamlessly coupled with Healthinc's OCCAM RIS, this solution provides radiology practices with the most advanced business management tools available."
