Lee Memorial Health System of Southwest Florida has chosen Agfa HealthCare’s IMPAX Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) for its radiology department. 

As a result of the agreement, LMHS will expand its current IMPAX Cardiovascular image and information management solution to produce an electronic medical record for all of its patients. 

The planned enterprise PACS solution will cover all hospital locations and outpatient centers, including physician offices. Clinicians from any of these locations will be able to view their patients’ images on one review station. 

Phase one of the installation is scheduled to begin this December. The health system performs around 680,000 radiology and cardiology exams, combined, per year.
