Begium-based Telemis International, a specialist in medical imaging solutions, has consolidated its position in Italy by acquiring Turin-based Micromedica Ltd, one of the country’s leading PACS (picture archiving and communication system) vendors. Financial details have not been disclosed.
Telemis extended its operations into Italy in 2009 with the opening of Telemis Italia SRL. The acquisition of Micromedica, in line with the company's strategy to support the growth of the PACS and MACS (multimedia archiving & communication system) markets in Europe, will significantly strengthen the sales and technical support capabilities offered to Italian customers.
Micromedica has specialized in the storage and management of radiology images since it was founded (as ERRE PI) in 1975. Since then the company has built an extensive base of customers including some of Northern Italy’s largest public hospitals. After the acquisition, Gian Paolo Robutti, Micromedica's Managing Director, takes the position of General Manager for Telemis in Italy.
