Algotec builds OEM business

Israeli PACS software developer Algotec has signed a reseller agreement with Toshiba Medical Systems, which will be selling Algotec’s MediSurf and MediStore products in conjunction with Toshiba’s PACS offerings in the Japanese market. A first joint installation has been completed.

Other OEM channels for the company have also begun to pay dividends. Algotec, which serves as a medical imaging marketing partner with HIS firm Eclipsys (PNN 8/98), has completed its first joint installation with the Atlanta-based firm at Children’s Hospital in Columbus, OH.

In addition, Algotec has also been awarded its first large-scale PACS contract from North York General Hospital in Toronto. Implementation will take place through 2000.

The company is ramping up its North American sales and support efforts, which are handled by Algotec’s Duluth, GA-based subsidiary, Algotec Inc. Five sales and support engineers are employed by Algotec’s U.S. operations, and that number is expected to double by the end of 1999, according to the firm.
