SRHS switches from analogue to digital with integrated RIS/PACS/Reporting solution

Agfa HealthCare US : 14 May, 2007  (New Product)
Agfa HealthCare's IMPAX Enterprise integrated RIS/PACS/Reporting solution has been selected for Southern Regional Health System's (SRHS) diagnostic imaging department in Riverdale, Georgia, USA.
The move, accomplished through Agfa HealthCare's Four Point Guarantee Program, will help SRHS tie together various systems within the facility, giving the group an efficient way to handle the community's imaging needs.

IMPAX Enterprise, an integrated digital imaging and information solution, can facilitate and enhance the planning, capture, interpretation, distribution, and archiving of diagnostic images throughout the hospital enterprise.

The solution includes an integrated RIS (Radiology Information System), PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications System) and voice recognition reporting system.

The implementation will proceed in a phased approach with the RIS solution expected to go live in July 2007.

The PACS system will be deployed across the facility and will include orthopaedic and mammography capabilities.

SRHS is also putting in seven CR 85-X computed radiography systems with Agfa HealthCare NX software for their main radiology, ICU (Care Unit Intensive), ER (Emergency Room) and NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) areas.

'SRHS is rapidly transforming the entire diagnostic imaging department from an analog environment to digital'.

'The move will make SRHS one of the most state of the art hospitals in Georgia with respect to PACS, voice recognition reporting and RIS', said Danny Whitt, director, Diagnostic Imaging, Southern Regional Health System.

'We expect Agfa HealthCare's technology will help us streamline communication between departments and result in fewer repeated studies'.

Administrators, radiologists, PACS administrators, technologists, clinicians, and IT specialists all gain workflow advantages when using IMPAX Enterprise.

The solution's features, navigation tools, and display modes are designed in a flexible and intuitive way so that they can be tailored to individual preferences.
Users can match the applications to their work habits.

The voice recognition reporting solution, part of IMPAX Enterprise, will allow SRHS radiologists to quickly and efficiently turn around reports.

Changing the way an entire department works can be a daunting task, but the leadership at SRHS recognised their staff is up to that challenge and that this was the right direction for their patients.

The Four Point Guarantee Program is Agfa HealthCare's exclusive programme that enables healthcare facilities such as SRHS to fully enter the digital world with less financial, technical and operational risk, by eliminating prohibitive costs and working closely with all users to ease the digital transition.

'With this installation, SRHS demonstrates its dedication to bringing advanced, high-quality solutions to its patients', said Agfa HealthCare's David Chambers, vice president, sales and marketing, Americas.

'The hospital is growing and our Four Point Guarantee Program helped them preserve their capital for other projects'.

'We are proud to be working with SRHS and helping them make the quality and efficiency gains they are looking for'.
