June 11, 2007—Last week at the annual meeting of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM), Emageon Inc, Birmingham, Ala, introduced its new RadSuite Express PACS solution. Based on Dell technology, RadSuite Express is a Web-enabled, single-server solution designed for small to mid-sized hospitals and clinics.

"We have been analyzing this market segment for some time," said Chuck Jett, chairman, president and CEO of Emageon. "With RadSuite Express we are now leveraging the knowledge we have gained over seven years to a new market, hungry for the advantages that top-ranked PACS technology can bring—better tools for physicians, enhanced care for patients and better operating results for hospitals.

"This simplified solution will be differentiated by a market leading price, long-term content management in remote data centers, on-site service through Dell’s proven national support services and purchasing options to fit the customer, including traditional capital purchase, lease financing and pure ‘pay per study’ options," he continued.
