(ASX: PME), announced Visage 7 Open Archive is now available in North America, comprising the latest modular solution of the Visage® 7 Enterprise Imaging Platform. Visage will be exhibiting the latest release, Visage 7.1.10, at the American College of Radiology Annual Meeting, Booth 203, May 22-23, 2017 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C.

- Always a native, modular capability of Visage 7, Visage 7 Open Archive is built on the same ultrafast, highly scalable enterprise imaging platform.
- Visage 7 Open Archive enables best-in-class interoperability based on open standards, even in the most complex environments.
- Visage 7 Open Archive is already in use in many large-scale implementations outside of the U.S.
- With a focus on value, institutions are seeking the very best, high performance solutions available from vendors they trust. Deconstructed PACS strategies are the enabler and continue to drive demand with hybrid, modular informatics solutions tailored to the needs of the individual institution. Visage offers customers proven flexibility, with the choice of deconstructed or single vendor solutions.
- Visage 7 Open Archive is well placed to fill the needs of a rapidly changing North American archive market.
“With Visage 7, we’ve set the benchmark when it comes to speed, functionality and scalability,“ said Malte Westerhoff, PhD, Co-founder and Global CTO of Visage Imaging. “The archive is an integral part of an enterprise imaging strategy, so it too must have the necessary performance, interoperability and scalability. We have been able to achieve this with Visage 7 Open Archive by utilizing the same enterprise imaging platform that has made Visage 7 so successful, while simultaneously ensuring that it is open standards based.”
Visage 7 Open Archive closely couples the storage of images to Visage 7 to provide performance and interoperability unmatched by others. Visage 7 Open Archive includes critical support of standards based interfaces and open standards like Imaging Object Change Management (IOCM), which is fundamental to automating integration to enterprise viewing platforms. The Visage 7 Enterprise Imaging Platform’s unique architecture makes it ideally suited for the convergence of medical imaging informatics to include medical multimedia, non-radiology and non-DICOM objects.
“Unlike legacy PACS vendors, we have offered a modular or deconstructed solution that provides our clients with the flexibility to choose the technology components that best suits their needs,” said Dr. Sam Hupert, CEO of Visage Imaging. “To date, we have replaced more than 40 legacy PACS and have successfully integrated to numerous legacy and third-party vendor neutral archives, and we will continue to do that.”
“But there have been some significant changes in the North American archive market of late. As a result, we are seeing a growing number of clients looking for an archive that can match the performance of Visage 7. We have that in Visage 7 Open Archive,” continued Dr. Hupert. “Clients will now have the choice between a best-of-breed, deconstructed offering that combines components from multiple vendors or our open, modular single vendor solution.”
