Pro Medicus (PME) has announced its U.S. subsidiary, Visage Imaging, has signed a five-year, multi-million dollar contract with Palo Alto-based Nines.

Nines is a radiology company that builds modern tools for optimal patient care. It aims to enable medical groups and hospitals to move beyond traditional methods and provide reliable, higher-quality service.

Nines was co-founded by CEO David Stavens PhD and Chief Medical Officer Alexander Kagen.

“Visage and Nines are collaborating on a modern cloud-based service with an eye toward exceeding those expectations,” David said.

“Nines selected Visage for its tech-focused leadership and we’re excited to offer Visage 7 as part of our scalable solution,” he added.

The offering, based on Visage 7 technology, will be hosted on Google Cloud and provide Nines with a highly optimised platform.

Visage 7 enables organisations to use the capabilities of what historically required multiple viewers into a single, customisable viewing platform.

The contract is based on committed exam volumes that align with the projected growth of the Nines offering. This is expected to result in over A$6 million of revenue for Pro Medicus.

Implementation is expected to begin over the next few weeks.

“This deal further validates our belief that our product can address a large percentage of the total addressable market in North America, ranging from smaller radiology partnerships through to some of the world’s largest, most sophisticated healthcare institutions,” Pro Medicus CEO Dr Sam Hupert said.

“And now our partnership with Nines is the next step in developing future services for high-quality remote reading/teleradiology,” Sam added.

Pro Medicus is up a slight 1.45 per cent, with shares trading for $23.86 each at 11:26 am AEDT.
