Acuo Technologies Announces Vendor Neutral Archiving Contract with CHRISTUS Health

BLOOMINGTON, Minn., Nov. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Acuo Technologies®, the leader in high-performance software and services for intelligent medical image lifecycle management and data migration, announced today that CHRISTUS Health has selected the Universal Clinical Platform (UCP3) as the company's new vendor neutral archive solution. UCP3 will replace CHRISTUS' existing PACS archives while providing an enterprise foundation for future on-premise and cloud-based clinical content management.

UCP3 will provide CHRISTUS Health with better access to all imaging data and a comprehensive solution for facility, partner and physician affiliation, while allowing the company to retire more expensive imaging archive systems across its facilities. UCP3 enables CHRISTUS to preserve its investment in existing PACS technology and storage assets, while providing an easier and more economical path for replacement of these systems when the time is right.

"We are pleased to be working with one of the country's largest and most respected integrated delivery networks," said Jeff Timbrook, CEO of Acuo Technologies.  "It was clear during the evaluation process that CHRISTUS Health leaders, clinicians and technologists share Acuo's vision of the next generation of image management systems that are focused on delivering superior patient care while reducing costs throughout the enterprise."

"CHRISTUS Health partnered with Acuo Technologies after a thorough evaluation of the top VNA middleware suppliers," said George Conklin, CIO of CHRISTUS Health. "It was clear from the very start that Acuo's level of expertise in this type of technology was solid. Their team truly understands how to improve and simplify what has up until now been a very complex problem for health care providers. Their UCP3 product will give us the flexibility to deploy technology in a way that meets the needs of those we serve."
