Enterprise Image Storage, Management Solution Provides Large-Scale Multimedia Storage

A vendor neutral enterprise imaging infrastructure that allows healthcare facilities to efficiently manage and share clinical imaging information, Agfa HealthCare’s IMPAX Data Center is the foundation for healthcare enterprises who want to take control of their clinical imaging information using standards-based infrastructure. IMPAX Data Center is an important component of a hospital’s archive, access, and disaster recovery strategies.

Agfa HealthCare’s IMPAX Data Center provides large-scale multimedia storage for all types of medical images and diagnostic results for hospital groups, regional healthcare organizations and national medical archives. The solution consolidates the data from disparate systems into a single point of storage to serve the needs of the enterprise. IMPAX Data Center aims to be highly scalable and fault tolerant DICOM archive system designed to store clinical DICOM data objects, including DICOM encapsulated non-imaging objects such as waveforms, structured reports and PDFs. A reported benefit of the solution is that care providers are able to easily access various datasources within the hospital or regional enterprise, through one mechanism served by the IMPAX Data Center. The solution delivers clear patient management benefits as their exams and results will be available at every location in the hospital enterprise.

The solution is designed to meet the needs of new technologies such as multi-slice CT and allows for the extension of PACS into other image-intensive clinical departments, including cardiology and orthopedics.
