Agfa wins contract from Antwerp University Hospital for cardiovascular system

6 January 2009

Antwerp University Hospital, Belgium has awarded Agfa HealthCare a contract for its IMPAX Cardiovascular solution. The contract will provide enterprise-wide access to cardiology patient records to meet the high volume diagnostic needs of the Hospital and includes an eight-year service, maintenance and licensing agreement.

The new system is designed to meet the image review and reporting needs of cardiologists on a platform that supports departmental and enterprise workflow. Employing a platform that supports both departmental and enterprise workflow, the IMPAX Cardiovascular solution provides image acquisition, display, reporting, storage and distribution management from multiple cardiovascular imaging modalities. 

From any cardiovascular review station, users can access images, data and reports for point-of-care delivery in a unified and efficient workflow.

"We selected the IMPAX Cardiovascular solution from Agfa HealthCare for its ability to easily integrate with our existing multi-vendor, multimodality solutions, as well as the ability of the team to meet both our technical and clinical requirements," said Professor Vrints, Head of Cardiology, Antwerp University Hospital.

Other decisive arguments which lead to the Antwerp University Hospital selecting Agfa HealthCare's leading solution were the availability of its specialized clinical applications as well as the system's user-friendly interface. The hospital also appreciated the solution's ability to rapidly implement new cardiovascular parameters.

A site visit to St. Jan's Hospital in Brugge confirmed the solution's capabilities, as well as Agfa HealthCare's strong project-based approach to implementing new solutions.
