Etiam Cooperative Medical Imaging Products signed a partnership agreement with Cegetel, a healthcare network in France, to equip all of Cegetel’s 16,000 subscribers with a basic version of Etiam’s Mediem medical e-mail system, called Mediem Box, by the end of this year. This is the first commercial implementation of Mediem, a multimedia e-mail program that allows users to e-mail structured correspondence, free text notes or letters, medical imaging files, annotations, and audio messages such as dictated reports. Mediem employs Java code and is fully compatible with DICOM, according to the Rennes, France-based firm. Cegetel expects to expand its subscriber base to 50,000 this year; all new subscribers will also gain the Mediem capability.
