December 30, 2013 — Agfa HealthCare announced the first two U.S. sales of Impax Agility, an imaging platform that unifies the functionalities provided by traditionally disparate radiology information system (RIS), picture archiving and communication system (PACS), reporting, 3-D, connectivity and clinical applications. Montgomery General Hospital, Montgomery, W. Va., and Open Systems Imaging, Palm Desert, Calif., selected Impax Agility to simplify IT integration efforts and provide a cost-saving image management platform. With Agfa HealthCare’s managed service, both Impax Agility customers never need to worry about storage hardware availability, maintenance or obsolescence during the term of their contracts with Agfa HealthCare.
Image Management
Impax Agility is an IT platform with an approach to consolidate and simplify IT integration efforts. It provides the functionality of traditionally disparate systems into one platform, lowering the total cost of ownership by requiring less equipment and thus simplifying its management.
“Impax Agility will take our radiology department successfully into the next decade while also decreasing the resource demand on our limited IT department,” said Vickie Gay, CEO, Montgomery General Hospital. “Impax Agility is the ideal solution, bringing an advanced radiology system with the cost savings of a great IT infrastructure, revolutionizing the way we work and keeping our radiology department performing optimally for efficient patient care delivery.”
Streamlining Imaging Services and IT Operations
With five locations across southern and central California, Open Systems Imaging needed an integrated system that would not only streamline key functions like image processing and dictation, but also support the mobile study review and reporting needs of its physicians. 
Whether on a local or wide area network, Impax Agility streamlines navigation for radiologists with its user interface and native diagnostic tools that increase reporting productivity. A workflow engine helps users follow the appropriate steps for each procedure and circumstance, from ordering to result distribution, resulting in clear and predictable task management.  For Open Systems Imaging, these capabilities help translate to better report distribution tools as well as mobile sign-off, which is crucial for radiologists working at home or on their mobile digital devices, such as the Apple iPad.
“Agfa HealthCare has taken the smart approach with the development of Impax Agility, and is delivering way more than just a PACS, but a true imaging and IT solution that we can grow with for the next 10 years and beyond,” said Ken Bishop, CEO, Open Systems Imaging. “By combining PACS, RIS, dictation and more, our radiologists can improve the services they deliver.”
