Digital image specialist Mercury Computer Systems has extended its partnership with Acuo Technologies in hosting a new ASP solution for hospitals and imaging centers.
According to the deal, Acuo, a provider of medical image management, will include Visage PACS, Mercury’s image management solution, as a bundled offering in its application service provider offering in the US.
Under this partnership, hospitals, clinics and physicians are expected to have access to the web-based software from Visage PACS locally via Acuo’s peer-aware architecture, or centrally via data center-hosted solutions. Radiologists and clinicians can access the PACS solution via the internet at any time and retrieve medical imaging data for interpretation as well as archive image data in the data center.
Marcelo Lima, VP of commercial imaging at Mercury Computer Systems, said, In the ASP model as well, hospitals enjoy the full functionality of Visage PACS. Data access is on demand via a browser and is in real time. In this way, doctors can store their image data in a distributed or central approach without losing time, and use it for interpretation.
