Iowa healthcare system selects Amicas
Amicas has received orders from Health Ventures for its Amicas PACS, Amicas Reach and Amicas RadStream solutions.

The Boston-based company said its Amicas PACS drives improvements in radiologist productivity. Amicas Reach allows radiology practices and departments to provide service to referring physicians. Amicas RadStream reduces medical-legal risk by automating and documenting critical results communications, the company said.

Health Ventures in Ames, Iowa, is a joint venture between McFarland Clinic and Mary Greeley Medical Center. McFarland Clinic, a physician-owned multi-specialty clinic, serves residents in 11 Iowa communities, with an additional 12 communities served by physician outreach clinics. Mary Greeley Medical Center, a 220-bed regional referral center based, provides its patients with services usually reserved for major metropolitan areas.
