Foresight Imaging and Sutter Health Sign Preferred Vendor Agreement

(Lowell, MA – January 16, 2007) Foresight Imaging announces the signing of a preferred vendor agreement with Sutter Health.  Under the terms of the agreement, Foresight Imaging will provide its PACS connectivity solution, the TIMS DICOM System, to all Sutter Health affiliates at preferred prices.  The agreement runs for three years.  “Sutter Health has been an excellent customer of our TIMS DICOM System for the last two years.  They have offered suggestions that we have been able to incorporate to enhance the TIMS DICOM System.  We are very pleased to continue to work with Sutter Health over the next three years under this preferred vendor agreement,” said Tony Molinari, Vice President of Marketing & Business Development.About the TIMS DICOM SystemHospitals and imaging clinics around the world need to convert their non-DICOM medical modalities to DICOM.  Upgrading or replacing these modalities is too expensive, often costing hundreds of thousands of dollars.  PACS is a large enough expense in and of itself.  Replacing all of the non-DICOM devices for PACS connectivity purposes is simply not cost-effective.  The solution is the TIMS DICOM System.  TIMS converts any non-DICOM medical modality to DICOM.  The resulting digital study can be sent to PACS, recorded to CD/DVD/USB, and printed to film or paper.  TIMS is available for a small fraction of the cost of a modality upgrade.  Yes, TIMS can convert ANY medical modality to DICOM.  This includes ultrasound, fluoroscopy, endoscopy, motion X-ray, angiography, nuclear medicine, MR, CT, and much more.  TIMS captures both static images and streaming video at 30 frames per second, 15 frames per second, or at virtually any frame rate desired.  TIMS even converts to DICOM the JPG, BMP, and AVI images generated in pathology, dermatology, and ophthalmology applications.

Pricing and Availability

Pricing of the TIMS DICOM System starts at $10,995 including an LCD monitor and typical onsite installation.  Please contact the Foresight Imaging sales team for an online demonstration.
