Richmond, Va.-based Virginia Commonwealth University Health System (VCU) has replaced its legacy system with San Francisco-based McKesson’s Horizon Medical Imaging PACS solution.

McKesson says its seamless integration with VCU’s existing database of images will enable the institution to avoid the costly process of converting data to a new backend platform. The contract also includes licensing for McKesson’s Horizon Optical Imaging solution, which enables clinicians to take an analog optical device, such as an endoscope, and turn it into a fully DICOM-enabled digital modality to enable digital capture of images, touts the company.
