AGFA's Impax PACS offers customers a fully integrated radiology information system (RIS)/PACS/reporting workflow system for data management and reporting. Improved productivity is achieved through the complete imaging chain, from order management to results distribution. The PACS also leverages automated task management by presenting relevant clinical information designed to synchronize with related studies and support informed healthcare delivery.

Impax Business Intelligence is part of AGFA HealthCare's advanced RIS and PACS offering. It provides historical, current, and predictive views of radiology operations in the form of real-time dashboards and management reports. AGFA executives say that Impax Business Intelligence helps demonstrate Meaningful Use of clinical data through its ability to actively monitor the thresholds outlined in Stage 1.

Other Impax platforms include Impax for Breast Imaging and Impax for HeartStation. In June, AGFA HealthCare selected Dell to host its cloud clinical archive portfolio, including the Imaging Clinical Information System (ICIS) platform. AGFA officials said that by delivering a cloud-based solution for the core components of the Impax Data Center, AGFA will be able to provide anytime access to, and fast viewing of, securely stored patient medical images.

Anything that can help integration & usability of these expensive tests is a win to healthcare. Sometimes it amazes me that these tests are so expensive and yet so difficult to interface with. It sounds like better solutions are just on the horizon!
