Algotec adds OEM partners

Algotec has broadened its distribution channels with the signing of several OEM agreements. The Raanana, Israel-based firm has announced that Atlanta-based HIS firm Eclipsys has chosen Algotec as its joint medical imaging marketing partner. Another company, North American Imaging of Caramilla, CA, will purchase and distribute Algotec's ProVision workstation and MediSurf Java applet-based Web browser image management software. Finally, Bio-Imaging Technologies of Trenton, NJ, will be using ProVision in clinical drug studies for new drug development.

Long-term strategy

Applicare believes its emphasis on Windows NT has been a key factor in the company's success, and the firm will continue to base its PACS software on the Microsoft platform. The company would like to make its viewing software broadly available throughout the PACS market, and as such, is looking to secure additional OEM distribution agreements for RadWorks.
