PACS vendor Olicon Imaging Systems of Aliso Viejo, CA, has divested its teleradiology archiving program (TAP) and microfilm division to F.Y.I., a document and information outsourcing solutions company. Terms of the deal were not immediately released. Although Olicon officials were not available to comment on the sale, the move appears to be in line with their decision to focus on OEM distribution opportunities with healthcare information systems companies, particularly with partner Shared Medical Systems of Malvern, PA (SCAN 11/11/98).

The TAP program allows healthcare institutions to store their radiology films at off-site warehouses in Louisville, KY, and Ontario, CA. When needed, the films are scanned via a film digitizer and transmitted electronically to the requesting site. Dallas-based F.Y.I. will call its new division F.Y.I. Radiology Archiving and Imaging Services.
