Heartlab Inc. has added cardiology information management technology to Agfa Healthcare's Impax for Cardiology PACS (picture archiving and communications system).
Heartlab's technology provides access to images and information from any department within the wider Impax system from a single, common search screen. Impax for Cardiology also allows for remote access for cardiologists to view, analyze and interpret images and reports from an office, offsite clinic or home.
Heartlab also announced that Memorial Hermann Healthcare System in Houston has selected the company's Encompass cardiac network to manage the cardiology image management needs of its eight hospitals. The healthcare system annually performs some 12,000 cardiac catheterizations, 31,000 echocardiography, 5,000 vascular and 3,000 nuclear medicine exams.
Trillium Health Centre in Mississauga and Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada, also is on board with Encompass. The cardiac network will enable exams from two cath labs, six ultrasound units and four nuclear cardiology systems across the two sites.
