PACSHealth wins Australian contract
PACS monitoring and reporting tools developer PACSHealth of Scottsdale, Ariz., reported that it has signed an agreement to install its PACSHealth system at hospitals in the South Eastern Sydney Illawarra Area Health Service (SESIAHS) in Australia.

SESIAHS will integrate PACSHealth with its GE Healthcare Centricity 2.1 PACS in order to provide real-time critical system event monitoring, historical performance trending and interactive audit log capabilities, the company said. The SESIAHS Southern Hospital Network PACS services radiology departments from six hospitals across the Illawarra region, just south of Sydney.

In a subsequent deployment, PACSHealth will be rolled out to the central and northern sectors of SESIAHS, incorporating all 11 hospital radiology departments. The developer said its application is currently installed or pending installation at 25 medical facilities in the United States and the United Kingdom.
