Duke Children's Hospital and Health Center has selected an IT system from Camtronics Medical Systems to manage pediatric cardiovascular images and information. Camtronics' Vericis will acquire and store images from the hospital's cardiac catheterization and echocardiography laboratories, including studies converted from existing modality-specific mini-PACS. The system will give physicians instant network access to integrated cardiovascular patient records throughout the hospital and provide secure Web access to patient images and reports via the Internet. Vericis will include EchoIMS, a comprehensive reporting system for pediatric echocardiography from VMI Medical, a subsidiary of Camtronics, which is itself a subsidiary of Analogic. Duke Children's is part of the Duke University Health System.
