Hologic Partners With MagView to Develop Unifi EQUIP Solution

New automated solution will allow mammography facilities to more efficiently manage FDA inspection process

Hologic Partners With MagView to Develop Unifi EQUIP Solution

July 25, 2019 – Hologic announced a partnership with mammography information solutions provider MagView to develop Unifi EQUIP, an automated solution that will facilitate compliance with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Enhancing Quality Using the Inspection Program (EQUIP) guidance. The Unifi EQUIP solution will be available to customers as part of Hologic’s integrated Unifi product portfolio.

The Unifi EQUIP solution will support compliance through fully integrated tools, such as automated EQUIP worklist generation that will enable technologists and interpreting physicians to manage, track and document quality reviews of clinical images. The new solution is designed to provide on-demand compliance tracking and reporting so administrators can feel confident that their facility is sufficiently prepared for upcoming inspections. These tools, among others, are designed to help facilities more efficiently and confidently manage the FDA inspection process.

MagView is a mammography information system with solutions for breast imaging reporting, tracking, workflow and compliance. It is utilized by more than 2,500 facilities across the U.S., including many of the nation’s top cancer centers, according to the company.

The Unifi EQUIP solution will be sold exclusively by Hologic and is expected to be commercially available in October 2019.
