High Quality Clinical Imaging

Established in 2004, AltaPACS implements and operates the IT systems for two of Canada’s largest radiology partnerships: Mayfair Diagnostics (Mayfair) and EFW Radiology (EFW). Together, the two partnerships complete over 850,000 multi-modality examinations per year with a network of over 20 clinics in Western Canada.

Mayfair and EFW also provide reporting services for over 750,000 examinations for Alberta Health Services. Mayfair further provides real-time integrated teleradiology reporting for a number of remote hospitals in Canada.

With over 100 radiologists interpreting over 1.5M studies every year, sophisticated digital technology is required to meet the requirements of evolving patient care. AltaPACS was created by Mayfair and EFW to address the growing digital requirements of the radiology industry and improve the services to their referring physician community.
