Greenville Hospital System Integrates Agfa’s IMPAX RIS in Imaging Departments

November 6, 2008 - Greenville Hospital System (GHS) out of Greenville, SC, has deployed its IMPAX Radiology Information System (RIS).

GHS reportedly selected the Agfa HealthCare IMPAX RIS for its ability to be tightly integrated with its existing IMPAX PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications System), allowing them to leverage persona-driven workflow for increased departmental efficiencies throughout the hospital enterprise.

Greenville has a four-pronged technology strategy: to help improve the delivery of patient care by having access to a patient’s complete medical history; to improve access to clinical results; to enhance process automation for care providers; and to eliminate the constraints of film- and paper-based records by having digital access to all information. Agfa HealthCare’s IMPAX solution is the core to integrating images and information across the radiology, cardiology, orthopedics, women’s care departments, as well as the vascular lab and the operating rooms.

2-D and 3-D digital breast images

Since the widespread adoption of digital imaging and PACS, referring physicians seldom visit radiology reading rooms, substantially reducing a major source of feedback for radiologists.

A software module to be described April 5 at the SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium has been providing that feedback for radiologists interpreting breast images at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
