Agfa teams with Vocada for critical test result management
Agfa HealthCare recently at SIIM 2007 in Providence, R.I., June 7-10, highlighted results of product integration efforts with Vocada, and new clinical applications. Vocada and Agfa HealthCare have signed an agreement to provide integrated solutions through Agfa’s IMPAX PACS for critical test result management (CTRM). Vocada's Veriphy CTRM system is now available as an integrated offering with IMPAX, providing radiologists with improved methodologies for test result distribution and verified notification.
Vocada's CTRM solution verifies the communication of critical test results from a reporting clinician to the responsible ordering clinician in time to benefit the patient. The integration of Veriphy with IMPAX can lead to faster diagnosis, playing a significant role in streamlining patient care and enhancing staff productivity, Agfa said. The integration supports radiology, cardiology, and clinical labs.
The integrated IMPAX/Veriphy solution supports The Joint Commission national patient safety goals of improved communication among care-givers.
