New Brunswick Canadian province is implementing Agfa HealthCare’s diagnostic imaging repository based on its IMPAX data center concept to give healthcare providers access to patient information, regardless of location.
The agreement, Mortsel, Belgium-based Agfa says, will help the province move forward with its e-health strategy, One Patient One Record, which will provide the infrastructure and functionality required to capture, store, view and link patient information for its 740,000 residents.
New Brunswick has partnered with Canada Health Infoway, which is contributing $18.2 million to the overall initiative, with the remaining $17.7 million coming from the province. The province expects to implement its system during the next three years.
