Agfa introduces patient kiosk
Agfa HealthCare has introduced the Impax Kiosk, an interactive system that allows patients to register with and check in to hospital services, in the U.S. and Canada.

Patients can identify themselves on Impax Kiosk, view and confirm demographic and insurance information, and electronically sign consent documents, according to the Mortsel, Belgium-based company.

Impax Kiosk includes multi-language options; clinic messaging of announcements to patients; and personalized messaging, for example, if a patient is due for a blood pressure check. For security, the patient data is not held in Impax Kiosk itself, and a privacy filter can be added that prevents others from viewing the screen.
