Imation receives large order for Canadian PACS site

Film and PACS vendor Imation has landed a large-scale PACS contract with the Manitoba healthcare system in Canada. The three-year pilot project, valued at $5 million (Canadian), for PACS, as well as associated wide-area networking equipment, will link up two Winnipeg teaching hospitals-St. Boniface General Hospital and Health Sciences Centre-with Grace Hospital in Ottawa, two rural hospitals, a clinic, and selected on-call physicians, according to Imation. The Canadian federal government and the Manitoba provincial government will each contribute $1.25 million toward the $5 million contract.

As part of the contract, Imation engineers will be working on-site at St. Boniface General Hospital to interface Imation's PACS to a wide-area network powered by high-speed asymmetric digital subscriber lines (ADSL). ADSL is a switching technology that utilizes existing copper telephone lines to rapidly transfer large-bandwidth files. St. Boniface plans to employ ADSL lines running at 1 MB per second, according to Imation of Oakdale, MN. Manitoba Telecom Services and St. Boniface General Hospital Research Centre will also be contributing to the project development effort.
