Agfa showcases integrated Echocardiography module for Impax Cardiovascular Suite

Agfa HealthCare Benelux : 06 December, 2007  (New Product)
Agfa HealthCare has showcased its leading Impax Cardiovascular Suite with integrated Echocardiography module for the first time at EUROECHO in Lisbon, Portugal.
Agfa HealthCare's patient-centric cardiovascular solution provides echocardiologists with consolidated access to cardiology images and data - from industry leading modalities and vendors. The solution enables structured reports to be easily created and distributed and images to be accessed from any in-hospital or remote location.

The intuitive Echocardiography module delivers the powerful capability to generate natural language reports in a wide variety of languages, facilitating information sharing between cardiologist, referring physician, and patient. The module offers a colourful, graphical presentation of measurement data aids trending analysis and follow up.

The solution also enables research and business intelligence data mining, offering user-friendly interfaces for querying. Robust, standards-based informatics features of the Impax Cardiovascular Suite include full integration with PACS, modalities, and haemodynamic systems; robust interfaces and connectivity to hospital information systems; and automated and customised submission to European and national registries.

Agfa HealthCare's regionalised Impax Cardiovascular Suite, first launched at ESC in Vienna in early September 2007, integrates multi-lingual, multimodality image and reporting capabilities, a result of Agfa HealthCare's unique patient-centric approach to image management and informatics. The solution supports improved productivity by providing fast and robust access to a consolidated view of all cross-modality cardiology and radiology images within a single review station.

Built to satisfy the most demanding clinical workflow, the Impax Cardiovascular Suite delivers innovative features, including advanced image management functionalities, tightly integrated structured reporting, vendor-neutrality, legacy equipment image management, and secure global access to diagnostic data.

Agfa HealthCare's Echocardiography module facilitates the management of digital echocardiograms from Echo carts from a wide range of vendors. Through its structured report design, data entry is facilitated and follows the cardiologist's workflow.

“We have installed our specialized Cardiology IT solutions in over 500 leading cardiology centres around the world,' said Ciprian Albu, MD, MSc, associate medical director of Agfa HealthCare's Imaging Informatics Business Unit. 'Since we showed the enhanced Impax Cardiovascular Suite to the medical community in September, we have received very positive feedback from cardiologists. They immediately recognise how the solution fits and improves their own workflows. In fact, we have recently finalised implementation agreements in Belgium, Sweden, Luxemburg, Italy and Romania. We are excited to show this latest version of our Impax Cardiovascular Suite with integrated Echocardiography module for the first time at EuroEcho.'
