PACS firm Agfa has received a $25 million contract from Queensland Health of Australia, which will use the Ridgefield Park, NJ-based firm’s Impax PACS offering to link the imaging units at five tertiary teaching hospitals. Impax software, workstations, and other hardware for electronic image capture, transmission, display, and archiving will be provided to the Royal Brisbane, Royal Women’s, Royal Children’s, Princess Alexandra, and Townsville General hospitals. Agfa will also serve as a systems integrator, linking Impax with four other major digital technology suppliers. Queensland Health hopes to convert to a totally filmless environment within two to three years, according to Agfa.
