Current contracts signed by PACS and IT developer Emageon have extended the company's backlog of orders to a figure in excess of $100 million. Emageon attributes much of its success to partnering with large integrated delivery networks (IDNs), including Kaiser Permanente, Sisters of Mercy, Sutter Health, Allina Hospitals and Clinics, and Aurora Health Care. To date, more than 70 acute care hospitals and imaging facilities have implemented Emageon products. The company, which expects to complete 30 additional hospital implementations this year, currently has a customer base of more than 250 sites. Supporting future growth is a new agreement with IBM that will allow Emageon customers to obtain IBM Global Financing, providing a single-source agreement for financing Emageon products and services.
