DeJarnette Research Systems has signed a letter of intent to acquire radiology information system (RIS) firm Swearingen Software of Houston. The purchase builds on the two firms’ partnership, announced last December at the RSNA (SCAN Special Report 1/99). Towson, MD-based DeJarnette hopes Swearingen will strengthen DeJarnette’s position in the PACS and RIS markets. No financial terms of the transaction were released.

DeJarnette will integrate Swearingen Software’s RMS RIS into Radiance, its PACS product line. DeJarnette hopes to begin shipping Radiance by the end of the year. Swearingen will remain at its Houston headquarters, although its sales, marketing, and business operations will be combined with DeJarnette’s Towson offices. Company president Randall Swearingen will become vice president of information systems and operations for DeJarnette. DeJarnette does not expect any layoffs or cancellations of existing products as a result of the purchase.
