Amicas Inc. saw record sales in Q4 2005 for its Vision Series PACS. The sales included multiple deals to large hospital systems. The quarter also saw the company expanding its offerings with complementary products such as computed radiography (CR) and imaging accessories sold with Vision Series PACS, the company said.  

One of the largest orders was a multi-facility agreement for Vision Series PACS with Essent Healthcare of Nashville, Tenn. At Essent Healthcare, the PACS will be integrated with their new Meditech HIS/RIS and EMR for access to patient data and images.
