Expanded DR Portfolio With Addition of Wireless DR Panel and Increased Software Sales Boosts Viztek’s Growth and Bottom Line
RALEIGH, NC–(Marketwired – Jan 28, 2015) – Viztek, a digital radiology and health IT innovator, today announced 20 percent year-over-year increase in software sales for the 2013-2014 calendar year. As physicians today are competing with hospital systems for the purchase of walk-in urgent care clinics, and forming multi-specialty clinics, Viztek was able to successfully capitalize on this trend with its versatile and innovative RIS and PACS solutions. Additionally, the expansion of the Viztek DR product line, with the introduction of the ViZion + wireless DR panel and the rapid adoption of the Viztek U-Arm and straight-arm bolstered DR sales up 25 percent over the previous year.
“Viztek continued to successfully charge forward throughout 2014, capturing a greater share of the healthcare market with our strongest product line yet,” explained Josip Cermin, Founder and President, Viztek. “Lead by our dominance in innovating the RIS, PACS and EHR market, alongside our new FDA approvals in both software and hardware, we succeeded our own goals and look forward to creating breakthroughs that will lead us to further success in 2015.”
Enhanced Product Line for Hospital Systems
Introduced in late 2013, Viztek’s Exa PACS gained FDA-approval in 2014 and continued Viztek’s momentum in the radiology space. The completely web-based technology is compatible with all devices and operating systems providing efficiency and productivity to hospitals, imaging centers and teleradiology groups via unprecedented PACS accessibility and utility for end users.
Leveraging IT Innovation
A cornerstone of Viztek’s success is the company’s forward looking software design, leveraging technologies from other industries and enabling healthcare and radiology to benefit from the advancements. In late 2014, Viztek announced that it was the first company to proactively license and provide true zero footprint viewing for radiologists and referring physicians. Not only can radiologists view reports regardless of the operating system or the age of the computer, Viztek has also added server-side rendering for the added speed of download.
A Contender in DR
Also instrumental to the company’s 2014 growth was the introduction of the ViZion + wireless DR panel. The new DR panel delivers a cost-effective option for the Urgent Care, Orthopedic and hospital settings. Viztek’s new U-Arm DR and Overhead Tube Crane (OTC) systems were unveiled for the first time in late 2014. Both systems were designed to maximize ease-of-use and versatility, and will support the company’s continued DR market growth in 2015.
“Our commitment to simplifying radiology will be even more apparent in 2015 as our team continues to develop cutting-edge technology allowing Viztek to be a market leader in the radiology space,” proclaimed Cermin. “We plan to leverage our relationships with our distributors, resellers and loyal customer base to continue to expand our footprint and bring the most advanced product line for imaging departments,” he said.
