Health System Uses Agfa Solution for PACS, EMR

February 3, 2009 - Ochsner Health System of New Orleans has deployed the IMPAX Data Center by Agfa HealthCare to manage diagnostic image access and distribution across the enterprise, providing a complete view of patient imaging data for seven hospitals and 35 health clinics in New Orleans.

The health system will use image management and storage for large, multisite and multifacility healthcare domains. Ochsner selected IMPAX Data Center in 2008 to consolidate data from disparate multi-vendor Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) and clinical systems from its seven hospitals and 35 health clinics onto a single point of storage. The solution supports all types of DICOM 3.0 medical images and diagnostic results including DICOM-encapsulated images, reports, waveforms and .pdfs.

IMPAX Data Center is designed to store and make accessible clinical data, consolidating information from multiple clinical departments and PACS vendors.

Named one of Health and Hospital Network Magazine's 100 Most Wired Hospitals in 2008 for the fifth year in a row, Ochsner is committed to a longitudinal, patient-centric electronic medical record. The hospital hopes that IMPAX Data Center enterprise storage capabilities will help it reach its goal of a personal medical record that makes the patient’s health information available whenever and wherever the patients are present for care.
