Merge woes

The Dalai's PACS Blog has some info on layoff fallout in the Merge / AMICAS merger.  It's disappointing to say the least.  AMICAS was a great company.  After having just attended the AMICAS annual user group meeting, I was cautiously optimistic about the proposed PACS code merge between RadSuite and PACS.  However, I doubt it is going to happen now that Merge has cut out a lot of the R&D that existed for the AMICAS PACS and I'm not sure what is left for the RadSuite product now.  I think the Enterprise Content Manager (ECM) portion of RadSuite was the foundational piece that the AMICAS PACS needed.  There were rumors of XDS enabling the ECM (which would have been awesome) and I'm sure that is gone now that most of the R&D has been dismantled.  OK, Merge, what's your plans?
