Pathology

The Company’s anatomic pathology systems are scalable, client/server solutions that are enabled with advanced voice, imaging and Web capabilities. Dynamic CoPathPlus is a client/server anatomic pathology system that automates specimen accessioning and case dictation, produces patient and management reports, and provides SNOMED and natural language retrieval of diagnoses. CoPathPlus also provides healthcare facilities with a flexible tool set that allows users to modify specimen data entry windows and report formats. CoPathPlus is image enabled by capturing high-resolution digital images and permanently storing those images electronically with related patient and diagnostic data. CoPathPlus is also voice-enabled with a speech recognition solution, which expedites the pathology dictation process and results in shorter turn-around time in delivering patient reports to clinicians. The Company’s pathology product line has an installed base of approximately 456 customers.

Laboratory

The Premier Series laboratory information system (LIS) provides functionality for specimen collection, testing and result reporting. The Premier Series LIS supports bar coding, instrument interfaces, paperless microbiology, multi-facility management and optical storage. Other features include quality assurance workload recording and management reporting. The Premier Series LIS integrates with highly specialized blood bank information systems, providing both transfusion and donor service software as well as regulatory products. The Premier Series LIS also complies with federal regulations and assists laboratories in deciding upon the appropriate and medically necessary course of action in diagnosing and treating patients. The Company’s Web-enabled version of the Premier Series LIS, known as e-Premier, enables laboratory and clinical staff, both inside and outside the hospital, to use the LIS over the Internet, extending the reach of the laboratory to remote hospitals, outreach service locations, reference labs, physician offices and homes. The Company’s laboratory product line has an installed base of approximately 104 customers.

Radiology

The Company’s radiology solution combines advanced client/server architecture with Web technology. Dynamic’s competitive position is enhanced by the close relationship between its Radiology Information System (RIS) and its Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS). Information collected by the Company’s RIS is available to the PACS, and images captured by the PACS are available to the RIS. The result is an image-enabled RIS combined with an information-enabled PACS. Primary markets for the Company’s radiology solutions include hospitals, clinics and independent diagnostic imaging centers.

Dynamic RadPlus is an image-enabled, client/server radiology information system that includes scheduling, patient tracking, film tracking, remote transcription, reporting and management of all radiology functions. Using RadPlus, facilities can easily adapt to change with tools that allow users to make screen modifications without the expense and delays of reprogramming by the vendor. As an integral part of RadPlus, Dynamic offers a PACS, which integrates information from the RIS with images and provides access to this information. CoMed for Results, a vital component of the PACS system, is a Web-based teleradiology system that provides radiologists and physicians with extensive access to radiology images and reports. The Company’s radiology product line has an installed base of approximately 66 customers.

CoMed

In July 2000, the Company launched its CoMed Internet strategy. CoMed, short for Collaborative Medicine, allows physicians, nurses and other caregivers throughout the care delivery system to access and share information. Dynamic has developed its suite of CoMed Internet solutions to enable clients to deliver clinical transactions and information to their physician populations quickly and cost-effectively via a client-branded, secure Website, and allow clients with limited capital and resources to purchase Dynamic’s workflow solutions via a subscription based Application Service Provider (ASP) model.

Dynamic is developing and commercializing its Internet and software-based medical information system products using the names CoMed for Results and CoMed for Workflow Management. These products are designed to provide, through Dynamic’s ASP facility, the ability for diagnostic clinical departments to implement end-to-end clinical information systems and results distribution using a secure Web environment.

The Company provides a full range of professional consulting services, including project management, implementation, planning, training and education. The Company’s technical services include network design, implementation and support, custom software development, interfaces and modifications and systems integration. The Company provides support services including 24-hour telephone support and software maintenance and enhancements.
