PACS news The U.S. government has awarded McKesson Provider Technologies its DIN PACS III (Digital Imaging Network / Picture Archiving and Communications System) contract, allowing the company to sell PACS and related sub-systems to all branches of the U.S. armed forces and civilian defense department agency facilities. The deal is valued at a potential $30 million through the contract term, which initially runs for two years with an additional two years of options.

“A mission-critical environment requires more than just industry-leading solutions to help meet the demands of healthcare delivery,” said Joe Biegel, vice president of product management and marketing, Enterprise Medical Imaging, McKesson Provider Technologies. “It also requires an innovative approach to service and support. We are honored to have the opportunity to use McKesson’s broad range of capabilities to service our armed forces.”

This agreement follows a string of military contracts which McKesson has secured during the last year. Edwards Air Force Base in Edwards, Calif. and Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, Nev. were the first of five bases to replace their hospital’s PACS systems with McKesson’s solution. Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter, S.C., Cannon Air Force Base in Clovis, N.M., and McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita, Kan. are currently deploying McKesson’s PACS and expect to go-live by February 2012.

“The U.S. Air Force has some of the most rigorous security and technology requirements in the armed forces,” said Thomas Lewis, director, U.S. Air Force PACS Office. “McKesson has proven that its approach to PACS design, implementation and support is well-suited to meet our unique needs for security clearance and efficient care delivery.”
