Amicas, DeJarnette team in debuting data migration tool for PACS
Amicas is debuting at SCAR Amicas Migrations powered by DeJarnette - a new product to fulfill the increasing need for replacement PACS and the migration of legacy PACS to modern architectures. Amicas estimates that 15 to 25 percent of PACS buyers are seeking replacement PACS solutions.
 "We believe that Amicas Migrations addresses a large PACS user community that is eager to move beyond their existing, restrictive PACS, to a web-based PACS platform over which they can exert real control," said Peter McClennen, Amicas president and CEO.
Also on display is the Vision Series PACS version 4.1 with new capabilities on the LightBeam Diagnostic Workstation such as advances in large data set review, including enhancements in the web-based 3D MIP/MPR module, a new Target Review tool and new navigation method for rapidly paging through large image series, Vision Watch application management with study-status awareness and enhanced RealTime Worklist filtering.
Amicas also said that it recently tied for the top overall score in the KLAS PACS Perception Report, April 2005 ( Evaluated by PACS users and buyers against the 10 leading PACS vendors, the Amicas Vision Series PACS tied for the highest overall average score. Amicas rated highest in six of the eight categories, including: vendor vision, clinical workflow, web distribution, end-user presentation, cost/value and integration.
