I'm glad Amicas is on board with IHE. Amicas is not the first with a vendor-neutral archive, but it deserves serious consideration as we progress head-long into EHR-land.
AMICAS Enterprise Content Manager is an enterprise clinical image management and information storage platform. Successfully deployed at many major hospitals and healthcare systems throughout the country, Enterprise Content Manager offers a vendor-neutral archive with proven scalability and interoperability capabilities that supports a broad collection of comprehensive electronic medical record (EMR) deployments.
"The demands on the infrastructure of imaging providers have never been more intense," said Paul Merrild, senior vice president of marketing and business development at AMICAS. "Given the impact of higher exam volumes and an explosion in the average size of imaging exams, the pressure to scale and support multiple imaging departments with a standards-based solution that is integrated with the provider's overall EMR strategy has never been more acute."
"AMICAS' vendor-neutral archive solution addresses these problems with a proven, standards-based infrastructure that supports multiple departmental PACS solutions - all while lowering the total cost of ownership of an imaging infrastructure over time," said Mr. Merrild.
Key features of the Enterprise Content Manager platform include:
Massive scalability with proven performance managing billions of exams throughout the country - representing petabytes of storage - via a high-availability architecture
Proven compatibility as a vendor-neutral solution with many major radiology and cardiology PACS vendors, which offers a lower total cost of ownership for the enterprise
A highly compliant, standards-based architecture with strict adherence to the IHE framework and protocols, which helps providers avoid costly data migrations as clinician preferences for departmental solutions change
Proven support for numerous provider EMR solutions at many institutions, including some of the largest healthcare systems in the country
