Fletcher Allen Health Care, a Vermont-based teaching and community hospital that operates in partnership with the University of Vermont, has signed an agreement to purchase Thinking Systems Corporation’s latest flagship ThinkingPACS offerings.
Thinking Systems’ solutions, including ModalityBroker, will be integrated with Fletcher Allen Health Care’s existing McKesson Horizon Medical Imaging PACS solution to provide enterprise-wide support of specialty modalities such as PET-CT, nuclear cardiology, and nuclear medicine.
The new installation will also include Thinking Systems’ enhanced PACS features, including hanging protocols, key images, and presentation states that are DICOM 3.0 2006 conformant.
With the integration of ThinkingPACS into McKesson’s Horizon Medical Imaging solution from the same workstation, our physicians will be able to access images of all modalities with the appropriate clinical tools and compare them side by side, said Frank Harris, vice president of information services at Fletcher Allen Health Care. The resulting system based on the cooperation of Thinking Systems and McKesson will not only improve the efficiency of our physicians but also improve the quality of our services.
