Calgary Scientific and Infinitt are both great technology companies. Working together, we can take our medical imaging solutions to a higher level, above and beyond anything our competition is doing
Calgary, Alberta (PRWEB) April 05, 2011
Calgary Scientific Inc., a leading innovator in advanced visualization solutions and web, mobile and collaboration-enabling platforms has entered a strategic partnership with Infinitt North America, a global healthcare Information Technology provider of web-based medical imaging and information solutions. The multi-year licensing partnership will see Calgary Scientific providing Infinitt North America with the revolutionary universal viewing application, ResolutionMD™ powered by PureWeb®, empowering Infinitt to dramatically extend the functionality of its Picture Archiving Communications Systems (PACS). This extension is designed to allow physicians to access and view critical patient information, reports and images from wherever they are via a web browser or on touch-based personal computing devices.
Having secure, anywhere access to this critical information can lead to rapid and accurate assessments, enabling faster and more informed treatment decisions, and enhanced outcomes for the patient. The convenience of securely accessing information via a browser or mobile device with advanced capabilities enables patient information, reports and images to be shared with a broader community of specialists, referring physicians and other healthcare professionals. This enhances communications between the healthcare team and the patient and enables more efficient and timely initiations of any required treatments. Patients now have the opportunity to have the leading edge healthcare expertise securely access their images, reports and other relevant patient information, in real-time, no matter where they or their information and images happen to reside.
The deal comes after a recently signed, long-term technology partnership agreement between Calgary Scientific and Infinitt Healthcare (South Korea) for the revolutionary PureWeb Software Platform and Development Kit (SDK). The technology will empower Infinitt to dramatically enhance the web, mobile, video and collaboration capabilities of its proprietary RIS, Picture Archiving Communications Systems (PACS) and 3D imaging solutions.
“Calgary Scientific and Infinitt are both great technology companies. Working together, we can take our medical imaging solutions to a higher level, above and beyond anything our competition is doing,” remarked David Smarro, President of Infinitt North America.
"We are very excited about the extension of our partnership with Infinitt, as they are a very progressive and innovative organization," says Dr. Byron Osing, CEO and Chair of Calgary Scientific. "Infinitt North American has recognized a growing demand for advanced web and mobile solutions within the industry and wishes to aggressively pursue that opportunity with an Infinitt branded ResolutionMD product line. We believe they will have great success adding on the value of the unique capabilities of this advanced solution to not only their existing and substantial customer base in North America, but also to certain installations where a vendor neutral, multi-device viewer is required.”
