GE unveils enterprise archive at HIMSS 09

GE Healthcare launched its Enterprise Archive as a stand-alone image storage product, a secure archive for PACS designed to integrate with existing storage technologies. To drive home its point of interoperability, GE is showcasing an imaging /electronic health record customer case from the Canadian Health Infoway, in which GE is helping to integrate its PACS and imaging repositories into a harmonized central repository.

Fuji steps outside PACS

Fuji has proclaimed itself a healthcare software provider and "not just a PACS vendor anymore." Its acquisition of RIS vendor Empiric Systems four months ago provided the technology platform to thrust the company's PACS into a broader spectrum of patient data management. The integration between its RIS and PACS is complete, installs are rising, and Fuji is now implementing a complete radiology management solution at a large integrated delivery network. Radiology and cardiology platforms are supported on a VMWare virtualized environment. Customers can choose data center-hosted and local systems.

Harris connects from world apart

Harris Corporation is demonstrating at HIMSS 09 global access to medical images acquired on far-flung military posts and interpreted stateside. The company is also showcasing an operational system for electronically connecting federal agencies and healthcare providers to allow the exchange of patient information. Medical records that once took the Social Security Administration months to obtain are now retrieved in seconds from other agencies and providers across the nation, according to Harris. Harris-developed software drives the system, known as the Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN) CONNECT Solution.

Merge touts software as service

PACS/IT provider Merge is talking up "software as a service," a buzz phrase now circulating through many IT quarters but one that Merge and its Cedara software subsidiary can claim to have helped launch. Latest developments by Merge shown in its HIMSS 09 booth are enterprise-class inventory and sales channel management software.
