(Vocus/PRWEB) March 08, 2011
INFINITT, a global player in Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS), Radiology Information Systems (RIS) and 3D Visualization software, have announced that they have signed a 3 year contract extension to provide Enterprise-wide PACS solutions for The Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (NUTH), one of the largest National Health Service (NHS) Trusts in the UK.
The Newcastle Hospitals Trust is a large, technically complex and diverse organization spread over several sites. The Freeman Hospital, one of the sites, has earned an international reputation as a pioneer in transplant surgery for both adults and children. Freeman performed the UK’s first successful heart transplant for a child, and is currently one of Europe’s leading lung transplant centers.
The INFINITT-Newcastle Hospitals contract encompasses digital image management and information systems for Radiology and other clinical Imaging departments such as Cardiology, Dental, Mammography and Radiation Oncology, as well as Advanced Imaging solutions for various clinical specialties.
“In the past, NUTH had experienced difficulty integrating their Imaging Systems,” said Sun Joo Lee, CEO of INFINITT. “During this contract extension period, INFINITT will simplify system management and operation with integrated solutions that can span many clinical specialties and departments.
Graeme Russell of INFINITT UK comments: “This contract extension is a very exciting opportunity for the UK company and presents a real opportunity to delivery a truly unique imaging platform to Newcastle Hospitals.
INFINITT UK was established in October of 2010 through the majority acquisition of Ferrania UK and is located in Bracknell, Berkshire, UK. It is INFINITT’s seventh global business unit along with INFINITT North America, Japan, China, Germany, and more.
“We are very pleased to have this opportunity to support Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and feel confident that this experience will allow us to grow into a major player in the UK PACS market,” added Lee.
