Philips notches eight-year PACS deal in Utah
Philips Healthcare has signed an eight-year iSite PACS replacement deal with University of Utah Health Care, the Intermountain West's academic healthcare system.

The Web-based iSite system is helping University Health Care meet its growing image storage needs and allow access to images across their enterprises, according to Philips. Instead of upgrading its existing PACS, University Health Care replaced its system with iSite PACS to leverage iSite Enterprise filmless distribution and advanced visualization capabilities.

Philips said its iSite PACS delivers an online long-term storage with the availability to see any stored study. A standards-based, single-database solution, iSite PACS can also be used to provide the image component to an institution's EMR.
