Viztek recently introduced its Exa platform for PACS, RIS and EHR systems that allows radiologists and physicians to access images and information remotely, the company said.
“The acquisition of Viztek will strengthen our healthcare IT solutions and broaden our primary imaging solutions portfolio so that in turn we can enable our customers across all market segments to better meet the evolving healthcare requirements for meaningful use and value-based care. As we aim to significantly grow our business, we can now be further assured that we are responding to customers’ needs with healthcare solutions offered and supported by a single company,” Konica Minolta medical imaging CEO David Widmann said in prepared remarks.
Konica Minolta said the acquisition would aid in its ability to offer end-to-end healthcare IT solutions and expands its ability to offer image sharing and viewing services.
“With the established footprint of Konica Minolta, Viztek can now rapidly expand by providing our Exa platform and our comprehensive range of proven digital imaging software to a much greater install base, including — for the first time — sites outside the U.S.A. At Viztek our development has been nimble and our products truly innovative, and now a much larger segment of healthcare will have access to our current and future developments,” Viztek prez Josip Cermin said in a press release.
Viztek’s partner company, 20/20 Imaging, will also become a subsidiary of Konica Minolta, according to a press release.
In July, Konica Minolta said it acquired Brazilian X-ray system equipment manufacturer Sawae through its Konica Minolta Healthcare do Brazil division.
The Tokyo, Japan-based company said it made the acquisition to address an increasing amount of aging X-ray and medical systems in the 200-million person Brazilian market.
