Philips to acquire XIMIS
Philips Medical Systems today announced that it will acquire El Paso, Texas-based RIS developer XIMIS. The Andover, Mass.-based Philips said that the transaction is expected to close in the third quarter this year.

No financial details of the transaction were disclosed.

XIMIS’ key product is its XIRIS (Extended Internet Radiology Information System), a multilingual RIS capable of scaling from community hospitals up to multiple facility healthcare systems, according to Philips.

Philips said the XIRIS product is complementary to its iSite PACS offering and will further strengthen the firm’s iSite PACS market position.

According to Oran Muduroglu, CEO of Philips Medical Systems’ Healthcare Informatics business group, the acquisition will enable Philips to provide an integrated RIS-PACS solution.

XIMIS will be incorporated into Philips’ Healthcare Informatics business group upon completion of the transaction.
