U.S. Air Force taps Agfa for PACS install
Version 2.0 The U.S. Air Force (USAF) has selected Agfa HealthCare's Impax Data Center to manage and share clinical information and images across all of the USAF's medical facilities in the United States.

The Impax Data Center, a PACS vendor-neutral repository of clinical imaging data, will be installed at David Grant Medical Center at Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield, Calif., and at the 375th Medical Group at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois.

According to Agfa, Impax integrates with existing PACS in multiple clinical departments and facilities, allowing the USAF to image-enable its EHR and consolidate clinical patient data into a single archive, accessible from the point of care. Compliant with the DICOM 3.0 and HL7 standards and the IHE Technical Framework standards for storage, Impax Data Center can integrate with any DICOM 3.0 standards-based PACS.
