Calgary Scientific Inc. and Siemens Healthcare Partner to Roll out Enterprise
Viewing Solution at Intermountain Healthcare

CALGARY, Oct. 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calgary Scientific Inc., a company
known for creating transformative technology for the medical industry and
beyond, announced that in partnership with Siemens Healthcare, they have begun
rolling out ResolutionMD™ at Intermountain Healthcare in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Intermountain Healthcare, the largest provider in the Intermountain West is
recognized globally for being at the forefront of adopting leading-edge
technology to provide excellence in the efficient and effective delivery of
medical care. To continue in their pursuit, the IT organization set out to
make images easily accessible to over 10,000 practitioners, external referring
physicians and other occasional users. With an IT environment that included
multiple vendor archives, combined with different viewers, it was difficult to
access and share images across the dispersed organization. After extensive
research, Intermountain recognized ResolutionMD as the industry leading
enterprise viewing solution they required to connect their current archives
and provide all clinicians fast, real-time access to patient images through
one consistent and easy-to-use interface.

ResolutionMD was successfully integrated with the proprietary Intermountain
EMR, as well as 9 data archive instances comprised of 7 PACS and 2 VNAs from a
number of different vendors. To date, a variety of clinicians have been
granted new access to important functionality including multi-user
collaboration, 3D rendering and mobile access with diagnostic capability. When
full rollout is completed, Intermountain will have one integrated enterprise
viewer that leverages their current architecture and creates a virtual
database system that eliminates the need to copy or move data across the
archives.

"Simple, universal access to images across Intermountain Healthcare was the
driving factor to move to an enterprise-wide viewer," said Geoff Duke,
Director, Imaging Informatics at Intermountain Healthcare. "We wanted a
solution that did not require any downloads, was fully secure, had the proper
FDA clearances for diagnosis, worked with our entire IT infrastructure, and
met the speed and scalability requirements that are always at the top of our
user lists. ResolutionMD and Siemens delivered all of these requirements
while providing mobile capability that will allow us to easily roll-out better
access of images to our staff."

"We were excited to provide Siemens with industry leading technology to meet
Intermountain Healthcare's needs," said Byron Osing, CEO and Chair at Calgary
Scientific. "Our goal is to provide OEM partners like Siemens advanced
technology to solve the customer challenges they are seeing globally,
including connecting disparate data sources and providing accredited web and
mobile solutions. ResolutionMD improves a physician's confidence and
decreases their time to diagnosis resulting in improved patient outcomes and
significant cost savings to the system."

"Intermountain Healthcare is an important customer to Siemens and we are
pleased to work closely with Calgary Scientific to deliver the enterprise-wide
viewing solution they specified," says Kurt Reiff, Vice President, SYNGO
Americas, Siemens Healthcare. "There has been very positive feedback so far on
the simplicity of the viewer and the fact that it is much quicker to bring up
images in ResolutionMD versus other solutions they have in use."
