Imaging software developer Amicas is going commercial with an online image management service that incorporates its Amicas Web-based PACS and systems integration capabilities (PNN 1/00). The Watertown, MA-based company has completed testing of the Amicas package and installed dedicated Web/intranet servers in several hospitals. The goal is to deliver real-time, Internet-standard services that integrate teleradiology, PACS, and electronic records from imaging facilities to physicians online anywhere, according to CEO Hamid Tabatabaie. Amicas service subscribers pay $2 to $4 for capture and unlimited distribution of a patient’s images. The Amicas.net portal is expected to go live later this year.
