McKesson HBOC installs integrated PACS

McKesson HBOC has reached a key milestone in its bid for an increased profile in the PACS market. Baptist Memorial Healthcare Corp. (BMHCC) in Memphis, TN, has integrated the firm’s MedVision PACS with electronic patient record software at its newest facility, Baptist Memorial Hospital-Collierville. The Baptist site is the first to implement the Alpharetta, GA-based company’s “infoPACS” concept, where PACS is integrated as part of an enterprise-wide information system.

BMHCC plans to implement similar systems at all 16 of its hospitals in Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi, according to McKesson HBOC. The hospital chain is already using the electronic patient folder module of the firm’s Pathways Image Manager offering at two larger hospitals in Memphis.

First articulated by medical imaging and document management firm Imnet Systems at the 1996 RSNA meeting, the “infoPACS” concept has taken several twists and turns before achieving commercialization. In August 1998, fellow HIS firm HBOC & Company acquired Imnet (PNN 9/98). Medical supply giant McKesson subsequently purchased HBOC in January 1999 (PNN 2/99).
