Work in Progress Image Viewer Available on iPad

December 6, 2010 – A works in progress data center viewer is available on the iPad. The IMPAX Data Center Viewer, by Agfa, is powered by Xero technology and is designed to enable portable point-of-care to patient images.

Clinicians can view reference images, including large multi-slice CT studies, as part of the electronic health record (EHR).

The system is an enterprise medical image viewer, allowing clinicians to access imaging information securely from any authorized location, on a variety of web-enabled devices. No additional client software or plug-ins are required.

"Because Agfa HealthCare's Xero technology doesn't require any sort of software download, it is ideally suited for the iPad," said Don Dennison, director of ehealth and regional health, Agfa HealthCare. "There is no applet required. With this Work In Progress version of the Impax Data Center Viewer, a clinician would be able to easily view a patient's imaging record through the iPad or any popular browser."

As EHR and electronic medical record (EMR) applications are becoming specifically designed for the iPad, the need for a reliable, easily accessible imaging viewer is becoming more important. Many in the industry predict that the iPad may help facilitate EHR adoption.
