Voyager Imaging

Voyager RIS

Australia’s leading locally based and developed PACS and Teleradiology company Voyager Imaging (a division of Intellirad Solutions Pty Ltd) today announced it has acquired Mi-Soft Solutions, a long term Australian Radiology Information System (RIS) designer and development company based in Sydney, Australia. The purchase brings together more than 34 years of software development and experience between the companies in the Medical Imaging sector.

Voyager PACS and Mi-Soft RIS products have a strong established base throughout Australia in both Private and Public Radiology groups and implemented into practices as standalone, integrated with third party products, or supplied as a full turnkey RIS/PACS product, all of which supported by our local team of specialized engineers and application staff, headquartered in Melbourne, Australia.

Voyager PACS products are installed and being sold into international markets and with the addition of the Mi-Soft range of products, will significantly increase our market position in Australia as well as our growing export markets in North and South America, Asia, Middle East and Europe.

Lance Thomas, Voyager Imaging Business Manager, said: “this is a very exciting phase for our company and being able to combine our Voyager PACS Web based products with the Mi-Soft products will provide our customers with complete clinically proven solutions from our company that are adaptable from small rural centers through to busy metropolitan hospital centers worldwide.”

About Voyager Imaging
Voyager Imaging (a division of Intellirad Solutions Pty Ltd) was formerly part of the Compumedics Ltd (established 1987), and became an independent company in 2000. Its products are marketed under its Voyager Imaging division for international markets.

David Burton, the founder and current CEO of Compumedics Ltd is the 100% owner of the business. Lance Thomas is the CEO and Business Manager for the Voyager Imaging company. He was a founding shareholder of Compumedics and has been actively involved with Voyager products since the initial development in the early 1990’s.

Mi-Soft Radiology Information System (RIS) Products were developed by an Australian company in close collaboration with Australian users. The products were first installed in 1993, from which the products have developed into a clinically proven system that has been used in both Private and Public Radiology applications. The combining of the Voyager PACS products with Mi-Soft has resulted in a single RIS/PACS solution for radiology users from small Radiology practices through to enterprise wide networks.

Voyager Teleradiology products are installed in both city and remote rural sites. Queensland Health and Western Australia Health have extensively deployed the Voyager Teleradiology products in their remote and rural sites with Voyager connecting these remote sites to large city sites for remote diagnosis. Teleradiology systems are also installed in very low bandwidth environments not only in remote Australia, they are installed in remote regions internationally such as Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. These countries have very low bandwidth, and the robust Voyager Telerad products can operate down to dial up phone line speed to send and distribute images to referring doctors and specialists.
