Emageon Signs Agreement with Integrated Health Network MultiCare

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Jan. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Emageon, a leader in enterprise medical information technology systems for hospitals and health care networks, announced today that it has been awarded a five-year HeartSuite(TM) VERICIS(R) cardiology contract with MultiCare Health System, an integrated health organization made up of four hospitals in the Greater Tacoma, Washington area. This follows MultiCare's unveiling of the new Tacoma General Heart Hospital on November 15, 2008.

The agreement comes after an extensive RFP process which evaluated major as well as several smaller and newer cardiology information and imaging solutions. Emageon was awarded the final contract to supply its VERICIS digital PACS and HeartSuite hemodynamics solution for four cath labs, including one in which Emageon's Pediatric Echo IMS product will be installed. The HeartSuite VERICIS solution will enable MultiCare to now digitally process its cardiology PACS studies and cath/echo structured reporting for echocardiography.

In addition, MultiCare will also benefit from Emageon's bi-directional HIS interface. This will allow MultiCare's scheduled studies, results and reports - generated within VERICIS - when signed off to be automatically uploaded to its EMR (electronic medical record). This will make the patient information immediately available for physician review and/or consultation with surgeons as well as trigger the billing process for payment.

This will be the first hospital enterprise in the Tacoma area to consolidate vendor products to give physicians access to all aspects of cardiac imaging and procedures performed on the patient through the use of a true multimodality and multimedia Web-based workstation. This includes reports or any type of imaging study from cardiology to radiology.

MultiCare stated, "Our team placed particular emphasis on customer references, paying close attention to their individual vendor experiences and proven successes with system installation, staff training, vendor follow-ups, system upgrades, prompt service, and competitive pricing. We found Emageon's customer base to be most happy with their installed systems, especially the relative ease with which the HeartSuite VERICIS application was adopted by the intended users, and even more satisfied with Emageon's product support. Additionally, we believe that Emageon's solution will provide us with the most comprehensive integrated solution to address our need for a fully Web-based product to include cardiology PACS; hemodynamic charting system; pediatric and adult structured reports; HIS, RIS, and CIS interfacing; and ACC registry reporting."

"Emageon is delighted to enter into a long-term relationship with MultiCare, a large and significant healthcare provider," said Keith Stahlhut, Emageon's Acting Chief Operating Officer. "MultiCare has been named one of the Verispan, Inc. Top 10 Integrated Health Networks and was awarded the VHA Leadership Award for Clinical Excellence with its transformation of the Tacoma General ICU/CVICU. We are very proud to have the opportunity to serve an organization of this clinical stature."
