Aug. 8, 2012 — iHeart Centers acquired the Heart IT WebPAX system for facilitating the management of medical images.
The zero-footprint medical image workstation provides Web-based medical image management technology and services to healthcare systems, large hospitals and private clinics.
iHeart chose WebPAX as the exclusive picture archiving and communication system (PACS) for every iHeart Imaging Center and iHeart Care Center. WebPAX is integrated within iHeart's iScan platform, a proprietary IT platform through which iHeart creates, processes, stores and displays medical images alongside the interpretation of the images. WebPAX is a link in the technology infrastructure allowing iHeart to deliver its iScan results.
With the integration of WebPAX in the iScan platform, iHeart's medical images and results are accessible 24/7 in any Web browser, with no specialized software or hardware of any kind, and with zero loss of diagnostic information.
"We are thrilled to be bringing Heart IT's patented, unique technology into our centers," said Casey Shattuck, president and general manager of iHeart. "Heart IT is a crucial partner in our mission to establish iHeart Centers as the new standard for cardiovascular diagnosis and treatment."
