    Microsoft PACS, RIS, and more ...

    Microsoft have entered the healthcare market in a big way with a family of products called Amalga.

    I found this out yesterday via a post on Dr Dalai's blog. It's not just RIS/PACS: Amalga is a "Unified Intelligence System" for healthcare organisations that includes a HIS (Hospital Information System) "built around an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) that includes complete patient and bed management, laboratory, Medication Management, Radiology Information System/Picture Archiving and Communication System (RIS/PACS), pathology, financial accounting, materials management, and human resource systems".

    It does look rather interesting. Wait and see.
