dynamic healthcare IT environments," says Florent Saint-Clair, Vice

opens up many exciting possibilities for our Enterprise-class customers
who wish to increase the useful life of their existing infrastructure

Imaging as there are healthcare enterprises. This diversity is a core
challenge for our CIO customers, whose job it is to support their

configurations. They look to us, their vendor, to help them solve
complex systems and workflow integrations not only within their four
