Agfa HealthCare demonstrates newest version of IMPAX™ at SIIM 2007


Agfa HealthCare, a leading provider of IT-enabled clinical workflow and diagnostic imaging solutions, announces today, at the occasion of the Annual Meeting of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM), the introduction of the latest version of its Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) and Radiology Information Solution (RIS), IMPAX™. IMPAX is a web-deployable application that improves the planning, capture, interpretation, distribution, and archiving of diagnostic images throughout the hospital enterprise. This single image-management and storage solution allows a virtual view of a patient’s imaging record, from anywhere Internet access is available, all on a single desktop.

The latest version of IMPAX provides the necessary tools and customizable workflows that help healthcare organizations overcome the physical barriers of complex multi-site environments. Enhanced imaging integration and added RIS functionality of IMPAX improve diagnostic efficiency. Physicians can review prior history and images and digitally assign acquisition protocols before exams and easily process and review images at one workstation post-exam. Clinical applications are embedded into IMPAX to provide physicians with improved workflow at a single workstation.

“Radiology healthcare providers need to manage patient studies across multiple, disparate Patient ID domains such as imaging centers, community hospitals and specialty clinics. With the enhanced capabilities of IMPAX, radiologists can access prior studies acquired at different locations to compare against current studies and subspecialty radiology services can be provided across the continuum,” said Lenny J. Reznik, Director of Enterprise Image and Information Systems, Agfa HealthCare, Americas. “Physicians will have more universal access to the entire patient record across disparate enterprises. Data such as demographic changes, modifications to images, patient status changes and HIS/RIS (Hospital Information System / Radiology Information System) updates are all synchronized across the enterprise.”
