MedQuest standardises on Amicas Vision Series PACS as new image management platform

Amicas : 27 November, 2007  (New Product)
MQ Associates (MedQuest), a national provider of diagnostic imaging services, has chosen Amicas Vision Series PACS as the platform on which it will address its image management needs across the organisation's nationwide network of 92 outpatient imaging centres.
'We performed an incredible amount of due diligence in selecting our image and information management partner,' said Todd E Andrews, chief financial officer at MedQuest. 'With input from our technical, clinical, operations, and marketing leaders, we chose Amicas because of our belief that its solutions would provide the greatest improvement in productivity for our large and diverse network of interpreting radiologists and referral physicians.'

MedQuest is a leading diagnostic imaging company that owns and operates 92 outpatient centres in 13 states, two-thirds of which are located in the immediate five-state region of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, and Tennessee. MedQuest is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Novant Health, an integrated not-for-profit health system headquartered in Winston- Salem, NC.

MedQuest centers offer diagnostic imaging services including Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine, ultrasound, mammography, bone densitometry, fluoroscopy, and x-ray.

'We are very pleased to have the opportunity to work with MedQuest,' said Stephen Kahane MD, chairman and CEO of Amicas. 'MedQuest is one of the nation's top providers of outpatient radiology services. Amicas is a top provider of comprehensive IT solutions for that market segment. As a result, this partnership between MedQuest and Amicas is both natural and very exciting.'

'The key criteria in our selection of Amicas included its ability to enable us to both optimise our internal operations and enhance our service offerings to referring physicians and our patients,' said Andrews at MedQuest. 'With the powerful real time worklist as an integral part of their web-based PACS and their innovative Vision Reach platform, Amicas is able to do both. Amicas clearly understands the dynamics of the outpatient imaging market and the need to deliver a value-adding product to imaging providers and their customers.'
