Integrating clinical data into PACS


27 February, 2007  

Agfa HealthCare has introduced the IMPAX™ Clinical Module, a new software component for the IMPAX Radiology Information System/Picture Archiving and Communication System (RIS/PACS) solution, that brings disparate clinical data such as lab results, pharmacy and pathology to the IMPAX Radiology Desktop. 

The new Agfa HealthCare solution moves beyond the traditional RIS/PACS focus by bringing clinical information that radiologists need from multiple sources into a single desktop location. Having this information available in real time, from multiple systems with a single log-on, saves the physician time and could potentially result in improved decisions.

The system flags abnormal results transmitted by the modality. The process of having this information on demand in real time has made radiologists comment on the potential to save up to five minutes for every study they need to protocol.  Little has been done to bring clinical information to the radiologist until now. Integration of clinical evidence to aid the radiologists with the protocoling and interpretation process is delivered through a zero click context sensitive integration to any clinical system in real-time, a true innovation in radiology workflow.
