Emageon today announced an agreement with ThedaCare, an integrated delivery system in Central Wisconsin, to provide advanced visualization, content management and workflow integration of medical imaging throughout its multi-facility enterprise.
Emageon's Intelligent Visual Medical System (IVMS) supports enterprise medical image sources and will integrate with ThedaCare's existing business and clinical information software applications. All physicians and medical professionals throughout the ThedaCare hospitals will be able to access multi-specialty images, related information and advanced visualization toolsets, which are dynamically selected through a single user interface.
"Among the reasons we partnered with Emageon was its adherence to standards, its easy-to-use visualization interface and advanced visualization toolkit, and the fact that Emageon was able to react quickly to our needs," said Stew Garson, director of radiology at ThedaCare.
ThedaCare operates two regional medical centers, Appleton Medical Center (Appleton, Wis.) and Theda Clark Medical Center (Neenah, Wis.) and, through its health plans, contracts with 16 other facilities to deliver care.
