Emageon provides an enterprise-level advanced visualization and infrastructure solution for the clinical analysis and management of digital medical images within multi-hospital networks, community hospitals, and diagnostic imaging centers. Emageon's solution consists of advanced visualization and image management software, comprehensive support services, and third-party components. Emageon's web-enabled software provides physicians in multiple medical specialties with dynamic tools to manipulate and analyze images in two and three dimensions. With these tools physicians have the ability to better understand internal anatomic structure and pathology, which can improve clinical diagnoses, disease screening, and therapy planning. Emageon's open standards-based solution is designed to help customers improve staff productivity, automate complex medical imaging workflow, lower total cost of ownership, and provide better service to physicians and patients. The company completed its initial public offering of common stock on February 8, 2005.
A typical solution sale is comprised of system sales and support services. System sales include the fees from the licensing of the four components of Emageon's Enterprise Visual Medical System (EVMS) that include the RadSuite Advanced Visualization, Clinical Content Management, Clinical Workflow, and HeartSuite products, as well as from sales and integration of third-party components that are required to implement the company's solution. The company in the fourth quarter 2005 expanded its enterprise solution to include cardiac image and information management capabilities known as HeartSuite. RadSuite Advanced Visualization is a suite of software tools for advanced visualization and analysis of digital medical images. Clinical Content Management is the image archival and distribution management software. Clinical Workflow is the integration and data migration software. Support services revenue is derived from fees related to the implementation, training, and on-going customer support of the company's solution as well as software maintenance and third party component maintenance. In 2006, system sales and support services contributed 61% and 39% respectively to total revenue.
