Vital Images and Eclipsys ink marketing and reseller agreement
Vital Images Inc., a provider of enterprise-wide advanced visualization and analysis solutions, has inked a marketing and sales agreement with Eclipsys Corp., a provider of advanced healthcare information technology solutions. Financial details were not disclosed.

Through this agreement, the Eclipsys will resell Vital Images' Vitrea 2 software to its customers as an add-on component to the Eclipsys Sunrise PACS. Sunrise PACS is part of Eclipsys' Diagnostic Imaging Solutions, which consists of Sunrise PACS and Sunrise RIS.

The addition of Vitrea software to Sunrise PACS will provide radiologists with advanced visualization and analysis capabilities. 3D images are sent directly to the Sunrise PACS workstation, allowing radiologists to launch the application and post-process those images with a right click of the mouse, without interruption of the workflow.

Accessing Vitrea through a PACS network and from within the EHR (electronic health record) will help radiologists and referring physicians make use of advanced visualization and analysis software.
Eclipsys Diagnostic Imaging Solutions consists of Sunrise RIS and Sunrise PACS. This integrated suite enables clinicians to view patient medical records and diagnostic images and reports in real time. Sunrise RIS and Sunrise PACS are available as part of an enterprise system or standalone.
