April 8, 2009 – At HIMSS 2009, Agfa HealthCare released an advanced healthcare enterprise visualization strategy that combines the company's IMPAX Data Center and IMPAX Mobility solutions to deliver managed imaging record access and distribution across healthcare enterprises and regional networks.
IMPAX Mobility is manufactured by Medical Insight A/S as EasyViz.
Enterprise Visualization is an image management and storage solution for large, multi-departmental, multisite and multifacility healthcare domains. Powered by IMPAX Data Center and IMPAX Mobility, it transforms multiple, independent PACS and standards-based clinical data into a comprehensive enterprise solution that consolidates, integrates and enables access to medical imaging information across facilities and expands accessibility by deploying a single enterprise viewer for all disparate visual data. Enterprise Visualization can help set the foundation for the true multi-media Electronic Health Record (EHR), according to the company.
IMPAX Data Center is an incrementally scalable, vendor-neutral DICOM-based clinical image and information archive that is designed to consolidate patient data from existing multivendor PACS in separate locations and departments. Lightweight and bandwidth-aware, IMPAX Mobility is a secure clinical imaging viewing platform that uses server-side computing and a micro-footprint software client application that doesn't depend on Sun Microsystems Java, Microsoft .NET, Adobe Flash Player applications, or administrative rights to distribute imaging data to clinicians. Server-side computing uses the latest in cloud computing technology to process images where they originate and uses adaptive streaming to provide efficient distribution of images, clinical data, and analysis tools.
Together, IMPAX Data Center and IMPAX Mobility comprise an enterprise visualization solution that:
- Delivers a PACS vendor-neutral archive for existing and future PACS
- Creates a repository for the unified longitudinal patient imaging record
- Provides diagnosticians with access to current and prior studies regardless of where they were acquired
- Improves services for referring physicians and remote specialists
- Allows access to consolidated clinical data at the point-of-care.
The solution for enterprise visualization supports all types of DICOM 3.0 medical images and diagnostic results including images, markup, key objects, reports, waveforms, and DICOM-encapsulated .PDFs.
