Cedara to jointly distribute PACS with German RIS vendor in Europe

Cedara Software last week announced an agreement with Karlsruhe, Germany-based medavis GmbH to distribute their radiology information system (RIS) in conjunction with Cedara's FUSION PACS within certain European markets, according to a release.

Medavis RIS is installed globally at large and small hospitals in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and China. This new agreement will see joint distribution of the systems within the U.K., Ireland, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and Lebanon. The medavis' RIS software will be available in a tightly integrated format with Cedara's FUSION PACS, to create a comprehensive FUSION RIS/PACS offering for select markets.

Using the medavis RIS, a radiology practice or clinic can be equipped with the number of user workstations it requires, and scale its implementation at a later date as needs evolve. Specific modules include support for scheduling, worklists, document management, billing and statistics. The medavis RIS also is highly adaptable and available for tight integration with PACS, HIS and EPR solutions, while allowing configurable workflow and language support for different sized institutions in different countries.
