AMICAS provides enterprise image management capabilities with AMICAS ECM(TM) (Enterprise Content Manager), a consolidated image management platform for radiology, cardiology, and other "'ologies" in a hospital or IDN. With AMICAS ECM, a hospital or IDN can manage all types of images and image-related information in a single, standards-based vendor-neutral archive that has proven scalability.

Across the country, AMICAS ECM has been deployed at more than 200 facilities over the last 10 years. In practice, a single AMICAS ECM deployment can scale from a single hospital to multiple hospitals and facilities processing millions of annual imaging exams. In total, the AMICAS ECM platform stores more than five terabytes daily, which adds to a growing pool of image data of nearly five petabytes in secure, online vendor-neutral image storage.

AMICAS ECM also addresses the imaging component of a hospital or IDN's electronic medical record (EMR) strategy with a lightweight, Web-based image viewer for images across multiple image-intensive departments.

"We have been using AMICAS ECM as the backbone for distributing images throughout our network for more than five years," said David Weiss, chief information officer at BJC Healthcare in St Louis, MO. "Our network is made up of 13 hospitals and a variety of health centers, clinics, and physicians' offices. At BJC Healthcare, AMICAS ECM is integrated with more than five different PACS from various vendors and provides a single interface into our EMR. To date, we have safely stored over four million patient exams, which represent over 92 terabytes of data."

With AMICAS ECM, a hospital or IDN has established a long term, standards-based image management solution that provides individual departments with the flexibility to purchase the clinical viewing solution that best serves their workflow. In addition, facilities can experience the benefit of avoiding costly, disruptive data migrations in the future as departmental solutions change.

"Several PACS vendors can provide access to a patient's radiology images through direct clinician access to PACS or through an EMR system, but they have not addressed the challenge of managing imaging data and image access across multiple sites, multiple vendors, and multiple clinical departments over time," said Rodney Hawkins, vice president of product management at AMICAS.

"With AMICAS ECM, we provide the best of both worlds: image visualization via the EMR through an embedded Web-based image viewing solution across all image-intensive specialties and management of the underlying image data through an enterprise-wide vendor-neutral image management infrastructure. This solution serves as an imaging EMR and offers a compelling return on investment for our customers and for the market," said Mr. Hawkins.

AMICAS ECM will be highlighted in the AMICAS booth at RSNA. To schedule a time to meet with our product experts and to learn more about AMICAS' enterprise image management solutions for hospitals and IDNs, please visit
