Agfa’s Next-Generation IMPAX HeartStation Compatible with Major ECG Cart Vendors

March 30, 2009 - Agfa HealthCare’s latest version of its IMPAX HeartStation, a comprehensive management system for electrocardiograms (ECGs) is now available.

IMPAX HeartStation features expanded compatibility with ECG carts from multiple market leading vendors, including GE, Philips, Mortara and Schiller.

IMPAX HeartStation supports popular legacy and new ECG devices. Built on standards-based architecture, this neutrality allows IMPAX HeartStation to easily integrate into the existing hospital and clinic IT infrastructure and ECG workflows, according to the company. The solution is designed to serve the diverse needs of large and small institutions, and their differing analysis and workflow patterns, within a single, unified system.

IMPAX HeartStation provides a single point of access to historical and current ECG exams in a universally familiar format. Study data from multiple exams can be rapidly accessed, making possible review, serial comparison, editing and electronic signing of ECGs throughout the hospital enterprise. Comprehensive information sharing with IMPAX Cardiovascular - Agfa HealthCare's cardiovascular image management and reporting solution - or any cardiovascular information system (CVIS) or electronic medical record (EMR) means that ECGs can be accessed within the cardiovascular patient record and reviewed along with other images and reports.

By including ECGs as part of the patient's Web-accessible cardiology record, IMPAX HeartStation provides the tools for speedy critical decision-making for patient care. It eliminates reams of paper and can boost productivity by facilitating rapid review of computer-generated reports and easy comparison of ECGs from multiple devices. It provides full integration to CVIS and enterprise workflow, and reconciliation of patient demographic data, orders and billing.
