Kodak and R2 Technologies have entered into a joint marketing agreement to bundle each other’s products-Kodak’s MIN-R 2000 mammography screen-film system and R2’s ImageChecker system-for sale to Novation and the University HealthSystem Consortium. Kodak and R2 each already has a sole source agreement with the two group purchasing organizations. ImageChecker is a computer-aided detection system designed to digitize, analyze, and flag suspicious areas on mammograms. The Kodak MIN-R 2000 yields greater resolution, more detail, and higher contrast than any other Kodak mammography screen-film system. The joint agreement is designed to enable Voluntary Hospital Association and UHC members to easily avail themselves of Kodak’s and R2’s products. Novation is the supply company for VHA; UHC represents more than 2300 healthcare organizations.
