Integrated Cardiovascular Solution
Vendor-neutral, feature-rich, integrated image and information management system for cardiology. For use with IMPAX for Radiology.
- Single, centralized repository and point-of-access for cardiology and radiology data, images and reports.
- Streamlined departmental workflow, consolidating information from cardiology subspecialties and radiology.
- Vendor-neutral solution working with all cardiology modalities, hemodynamic systems, ECG carts, etc.
- Standards-based interfaces between other hospital systems, for greater accuracy of patient records.
- Integrated clinical multi-modality reporting for images and non-image data.
- Robust features, for confident diagnostic decisions.
The Integrated Cardiovascular Solution consists of advanced image management and analysis tools for multiple cardiology modalities; structured digital cardiology reporting; and secure web-based access to cardiology and radiology images, and other data stored in your hospital's IMPAX for Radiology. It independently connects with any modality or enterprise information system, providing an integrated view of patient data from a single point-of-access.
By allowing you to view both cardiology and radiology images and reports, it supports you in making confident diagnostic decisions based on the most complete set of information available.
Can be used with following products and services
IMPAX for Radiology 6.2
IMPAX for Radiology 5.2 and 4.5 (IMPAX for Radiology legacy systems)
Suitable for following market segments
Hospitals that want to consolidate their image management infrastructure and currently have or will have Agfa IMPAX for Radiology (versions 4.5, 5.2, and 6.2)
Single, centralized data repository
With the Integrated Cardiovascular Solution combined with IMPAX for Radiology, your facility can manage cardiology and radiology images from a single, structured data repository. While the cardiology department retains full control of its own data sharing, this enterprise-level repository eliminates independent information silos; fosters a common backend network and archive infrastructure; and eliminates the need for costly, redundant disaster recovery plans and duplicate system administration.
Enhanced departmental and hospital workflow
Cardiologists have a single point-of-access to clinical cardiology and radiology images and reports, as well as consolidated information from multiple cardiology subspecialties and modalities. Communication across the hospital is improved, thanks to a more efficient diagnostic process, reduced redundant data entry, faster report completion time, fewer transcription errors, integrated scheduling and an improved reimbursement process.
The Integrated Cardiovascular Solution supports the following modalities: cardiac angiography, cardiac ultrasound, non-invasive vascular ultrasound and cardiac nuclear medicine, as well as non-image data such as waveforms, measurements and other text-based information.
Advanced structured digital reporting
The Integrated Cardiovascular Solution offers tightly-integrated and web-enabled structured reporting, so you can create reports digitally while reviewing cases online. Reporting modules are available for adult catheterization and echocardiology, pediatric echocardiology, congenital heart disease, nuclear medicine, and non-invasive vascular disease management.
Enhanced control of patient data
The solution enables sophisticated data mining and extraction to support information requirements of national data registries. In addition, it provides a longitudinal view of patient care, so you are making decisions with more information.
