San Francisco - Microsoft is now offering its Amalga health-care software in Europe, the company announced at the CohnIT heath-care show on Wednesday in Berlin.
Amalga -- which represents one of Microsoft's new thrusts into other software fields -- has many components, covering everything from handling patient care records to tracking research projects and finance department tasks. Microsoft has a version of Amalga for emerging markets, Amalga Hospital Information System, which has features such as bed management, human resources and picture archiving for radiology. The picture archiving feature is also offered as a stand-alone system called Amalga Radiology Information System and Picture Archiving and Communication System.
Amalga is being used by eight hospitals in MedStar Health's network, which covers the Washington, D.C., and Baltimore areas, as well as Johns Hopkins Hospital, among others.
