September 22, 2009 - Agfa HealthCare, a leading provider of IT-enabled clinical workflow and diagnostic imaging solutions, said it has expanded its technical integration of IMPAX 6.0 radiology picture archiving and communication system (PACS) with industry-leading workflow, quality improvement, and communications products from peerVue, a provider of niche healthcare software solutions.
Agfa HealthCare will become a reseller for peerVue's qiVue, a workflow, quality and communication solution, and caseVue, a teaching file and content management solution, enabling Agfa HealthCare to offer qiVue and caseVue to its IMPAX radiology PACS customers. The integrated Agfa HealthCare/peerVue solution allows radiology departments to meet increased regulatory and quality challenges while providing an easy-to-use, tightly-integrated workflow.
The solution helps enable radiology departments to meet requirements for accreditation by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and is in compliance with The Joint Commission's National Patient Safety Goals. The functionality includes critical results reporting, peer review, emergency department discrepancy management, technologist quality control, and teaching files.
QiVue and caseVue are integrated into IMPAX workflow, providing physicians with single sign-on access to peerVue's web-based applications directly from the IMPAX desktop and allowing them to launch their IMPAX viewer from peerVue's application. This allows radiologists to be more efficient through simple point-and-click reporting of study discrepancies and other quality- and communication-related activities directly from the IMPAX desktop.
