Agfa nets Impax Data Center install in New Orleans
Ochsner Health System of New Orleans has deployed Agfa Healthcare’s Impax Data Center, an image management and storage solution for large, multi-site and multi-facility healthcare domains.

Ochsner said it selected Impax Data Center to consolidate data from disparate multi-vendor PACS and clinical systems from its seven hospitals and 35 health clinics onto a single point of storage. The solution supports all types of DICOM 3.0 medical images and diagnostic results including DICOM-encapsulated images, reports, waveforms and pdfs, according to Agfa.

Lenny J. Reznik, director of enterprise imaging and information at Agfa, said that Impax Data Center adheres to all relevant archiving IHE (Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise) radiology, cardiology and IT infrastructure profiles for storage, including XDS (Cross Document Sharing) and XDS-I (XDS-Imaging).
