Agfa signs up Inphact to supply CR, PACS via ASP

Agfa has signed a purchase and supply agreement with Nashville, TN-based Inphact to provide Agfa CR and PACS products, service, and support to community hospitals and clinics on an application service provider basis. Through its ASP service, Inphact enables imaging departments to “rent” its technology platform, which includes digital acquisition equipment, information software, image distribution, and the archive. Customers are charged on a per-procedure basis. Inphact says this latest contract with Agfa will be worth at least $5 million over the next 14 months.

In related news, Agfa has taken a majority position in RIS vendor Quadrat. The two Belgian firms now plan to accelerate the integration of RIS technology into Agfa’s Impax PACS product and pursue further development of electronic patient record technologies.
