Agfa Introduces Remote Impax CV Web+ Solution at ACC 2013

Robust cardiovascular suite provides access to clinical images and data throughout the enterprise

 IMPAX CV Web+ Agfa Healthcare Cardiac PACS ACC 2013

March 15, 2013 — Agfa HealthCare demonstrated its Impax CV Web+ solution at the American College of Cardiology's (ACC) 62nd Annual Scientific Session and Expo held in San Francisco from March 9-11. The technology transforms cardiovascular care delivery by providing physician access to cardiovascular images and reports regardless of location.

A single point of access to support efficient diagnostic workflow

Agfa HealthCare has developed the Impax Cardiovascular Suite to provide a single point of access to support efficient diagnostic workflow including secure access to patient information and the ability to create, edit and sign off on advanced structured clinical reports.

Impax CV Web+ connects to all of an integrated cardiovascular information system's studies and modalities including cardiac catheterization, adult and pediatric echocardiography, vascular ultrasound, cardiac computed tomography (CT)/CT angiography (CTA), nuclear cardiology and ECG data. The dynamic, standards-based, vendor-neutral technology provides full access to all necessary tool sets and measurements via the hospital network or Web for urgent patient care needs. Impax CV Web+ leverages either Citrix or VMware infrastructure to provide Impax CV customers with secure access to patient reports and images.

Built with cardiologists in mind

The advanced solution also has the potential to bring significant cost savings to hospitals while deploying full review functionality on-site. Instead of purchasing a workstation and associated hardware and software components, Impax CV Web+ can simply be deployed in the hospital (or elsewhere), bringing the benefits of a traditional workstation with lower expense.

"Impax CV Web+ is a cost-effective, easy-to-use, and easy-to-implement solution," says Charles Wickens, global general manager, Cardiovascular IT, Agfa HealthCare. "This tool was built with cardiologists in mind as they juggle the demands of increased workload and personal life. They can spend time with their family, then log in and finish the last few cases or tasks of the day because their work can be accessible from home."

Compatible with existing as well as future versions of Impax Cardiovascular, Impax CV Web+ is scheduled to be released in the second half of 2013.
