Amsterdam-based Royal Philips Electronics is acquiring El Paso, Texas-based XIMIS Inc., a provider of radiology information systems (RIS), for an undisclosed sum.

XIMIS' key product is XIRIS (Extended Internet Radiology Information System) which is a Web-based RIS, scaling from community hospitals up to large, multiple facilities hospitals, according to the company. XIRIS, which employs approximately 50 people, also provides an international and multilingual solution.

Where XIRIS concentrates on workflow management at radiology facilities, Philips iSite PACS concentrates on image management and distribution. As such, the companies expect the XIRIS solution to complement Philips iSite PACS offering, strengthening Philips' market position.

XIMIS will be incorporated into the Healthcare Informatics business group of Philips' Medical Systems division. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2007.
