Nets Initial Orders for Three DR Systems in Provincial RSHIP Project
CALGARY, June 6 /CNW/ - Imaging Dynamics Company (IDC) (TSX: IDL), has
been named the preferred digital radiography (DR) system provider in the East
Central and Northern Lights Health Regions of Alberta. Along with this
designation, IDC has received an initial order for three DR systems.
An Xplorer 2200 dual detector system is now installed and operational at
St. Joseph's General Hospital in Vegreville in the East Central Health Region.
In addition, an Xplorer 2200 system has been ordered for Northern Lights
Medical Center in Fort McMurray and an Xplorer 1600 is on its way to the
community health center in LaCrete, both in the Northern Lights Healthcare
After extensive evaluation the selection teams chose IDC DR systems for
their patients because of many special positioning features and advanced
imaging capabilities. Close proximity of the IDC technology development and
support team in Calgary was also an important factor.
"It is especially satisfying to see IDC products coming back to our
roots, where the technology was invented and this company is based," said
Darryl Stein, IDC President & CEO. "Our DR systems are gaining popularity
around the world, but becoming a preferred provider in Alberta really means a
lot to all of us who live and work here in this province."
CAN-med Healthcare (Halifax, NS) is IDC's business partner for the RSHIP
The Regional Shared Health Information Program (RSHIP) is a collaborative
effort of seven Alberta health regions to create a shared Electronic Health
Record. An integral part of this project is the replacement of film based
general radiography equipment with digital imaging technology.
RSHIP encompasses nearly 100 facilities and over 6,000 beds encompassing
acute care, continuing care, and public health needs serving more than
one million Albertans. The Alberta Health and Wellness and Canada Health
Infoway plan to invest $189 Million in Provincial EHR projects with the
objective of creating an electronic health record for every Albertan by 2008.
