May 8, 2009 - Agfa HealthCare penned an agreement with ZNA (Ziekenhuis Netwerk Antwerpen - Hospital Network Antwerp) for the delivery of its IMPAX 6 image management solution to support and centralize the diagnostic and clinical imaging needs of its nine sites across the city. As part of the agreement, Agfa HealthCare will act as the customer’s key application service provider (ASP) for medical imaging, providing remote solution hosting and management at its advanced server facilities in Mortsel.
The solution will meet the imaging needs of 37 radiologists, a nuclear medicine specialist and over 600 clinicians across the ZNA facilities. ZNA is Belgium's largest hospital group, and one of Europe's top ten hospitals in size, counting a total of nine sites, around 2500 beds and serves over 1 million inhabitants in the Antwerp region. The hospital group manages over 400,000 radiology exams annually.
Agfa HealthCare's IMPAX 6 is a web-deployable solution that provides the necessary tools and customizable workflows that help overcome the physical barriers of complex multi-site environments. The solution is a single diagnostic image-management and storage system that improves the planning, capture, interpretation, distribution, and archiving of diagnostic images, allowing a virtual view of a patient's imaging record across the hospital enterprise.
Agfa HealthCare's IMPAX will integrate all existing radiology solutions at ZNA into its centralized workflow including an existing RIS/Speech from Agfa HealthCare, an electronic patient record solution and other IT sub-systems. As part of the agreement, the company will also integrate a number of Agfa HealthCare's advanced clinical applications into the solution, including 3D rendering, orthopedic and nuclear medicine software.
