(Nasdaq: AMCS), a leader in image and information management solutions, announced today at the 59th Annual Scientific Session of the American College of Cardiology (ACC.10), that the company has signed contracts for more than 90 clinical knowledge bases for Web-based structured reporting for cardiology.

A module of AMICAS VERICIS®, clinical knowledge bases help cardiologists quickly and easily generate complete reports by providing a reporting template that is contextually matched to the type of exam being reviewed. Each of the knowledge bases, which are designed to streamline reporting, contain fields that are specific to each modality so that cardiologists are able to communicate results quickly and efficiently, while also collecting data important for a variety of important activities, including ACCF-NCDR CathPCI Registry Reporting.

"Since the launch of AMICAS VERICIS' Web-based reporting at ACC.09, AMICAS has signed contracts for more than 90 departmental knowledge bases for this solution across all areas of the cardiology department, including cardiac cath, echocardiography, nuclear medicine, and vascular ultrasound," said Rodney Hawkins, vice president of product management at AMICAS.

"AMICAS' cardiology solutions, originally developed by Camtronics, are completely focused on the automation of cardiology workflow," said Mr. Hawkins. "With AMICAS VERICIS' Web-based reporting, cardiologists around the country are now able to report on any cardiology study from anywhere – whether they are located in their office, in the cardiology department, or even in their own homes. Location-independent, Web-based reporting caters to cardiologists' needs as they are often mobile and still need to provide timely patient care."

AMICAS will highlight its cardiology and enterprise IT solutions at ACC.10 from March 14 to 16 in Atlanta, GA. AMICAS will be in booth #636.
