Jan. 6, 2010

Boston, MA (January 5, 2010) — AMICAS, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMCS), a leader in image and information management solutions, today announced a new contract with Asheville Radiology Associates (Asheville, NC). This agreement will allow Asheville Radiology to use AMICAS Financials™ for radiology billing, AMICAS Dashboards™ for business intelligence, and AMICAS Patient ServicesSM and AMICAS Payer ServicesSM for streamlining their radiology billing processes.

Asheville Radiology consists of 37 radiologists and five vascular surgeons and has three imaging centers based in Asheville. The largest radiology practice of its kind in western North Carolina, Asheville Radiology provides a wide range of imaging services, including women’s imaging, CT, interventional radiology, MRI, neuroradiology, nuclear medicine, body imaging, musculoskeletal radiology, and vascular ultrasound.

“For Asheville Radiology, the choice was clear. We were looking for a radiology software partner that could help us accomplish two specific goals: improve patient satisfaction with more efficient online payment options and increase productivity to enable staff members to focus on working denials,” said Robert Pegram, director of billing operations at Asheville Radiology.

“I am confident that, by working closely with AMICAS, Asheville Radiology will accomplish these goals – and more. AMICAS is recognized as a major leader in radiology and imaging automation solutions.”

AMICAS Financials, a Windows-based solution, provides CashFinder Worklists™ to automate radiology billing. AMICAS Dashboards, a Web-based business intelligence platform, provides radiology practices with actionable data for analysis and resource allocation decisions. AMICAS Patient Services and AMICAS Payer Services includes a suite of transactional services designed to dramatically reduce the time it takes for radiology groups to convert receivables into cash while reducing their total cost of operations.

“We are excited about our partnership with Asheville Radiology, which is a leading practice in North Carolina,” said Stephen Kahane MD, president, chief executive officer, and chairman of AMICAS. “Asheville Radiology is focused on streamlining their practice and ensuring patient and referring physician satisfaction to drive quality of care delivery and bottom line results – and AMICAS can help them accomplish all of these goals.”
