Agfa HealthCare announced that it has been selected by the Toronto East Network (TEN) as the preferred vendor for the region’s PACS project. Requiring the integration of several RIS and PACS systems from different vendors, this project will utilise Agfa’s IMPAX solution.
The TEN PACS Project is a joint initiative commissioned by a voluntary consortium of 16 hospital corporations. In cooperation with these hospitals and Canada Health Infoway, the TEN PACS Project Management Office has defined a three year phased implementation strategy for the creation of a shared Diagnostic Imaging Repository for images and reports.
Agfa HealthCare will provide its IMPAX solution for current non- PACS sites in the TEN and for the implementation of a regional Diagnostic Imaging Repository. The Repository will allow all participating hospital corporations to centrally store image and report data, and to access relevant prior patient images, regardless of which TEN site acquired them.
