Applicare books record revenues

Dutch PACS software firm Applicare Medical Imaging has posted impressive results for the first eight months of 1999. During this period, the GE Medical Systems subsidiary doubled the total installed base it had at the end of 1998, and sold 4500 RadWorks software licenses. Almost 600 hospitals and private practices in over 30 countries are now using RadWorks, according to CEO Ruud Kroon.

Applicare has also released version 5.0 of its RadWorks software. The new release includes support for multi-frame images, independent windowing of the magnifying glass, and enhancement of second-generation hanging protocols. Other features include the ability to save studies with a single keystroke, annotation improvements, local worklist composition, enhanced autorouting to multiple destinations, and customization of the user interface. Automatic matching of incoming patient data with DICOM worklist data is provided, as is DICOM lossless JPEG compression, according to the Zeist-based firm.

In other news, GE sales staff are now actively selling RadWorks under the GE logo, Kroon said. In addition, Applicare’s software-only, NT-based archive (PNN 7/99) entered beta testing in July, with an introduction expected before this year’s RSNA meeting.
