New image viewer in Epic@UNC for UNC Medical Center images

At 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017, the Epic@UNC image hyperlinks at UNC Medical Center will transition from Impax to UNC Health Care's new viewer, called NIL. The NIL viewer offers the same Epic@UNC-based image accessibility and tool sets as Impax.

  • NIL will go into affect at 8 p.m. Feb. 1 for UNC Medical Center, including the affiliated imaging locations such as the ACC, Imaging & Spine Center, Hillsborough Hospital, etc.  
  • The NIL viewer is being rolled out in conjunction with the vendor neutral archive (VNA) project across UNC Health Care.
  • The NIL viewer will open the current selected study from Agfa Impax, and will also indicate other available images for that patient based on the Epic@UNC medical record number (MRN) from the VNA and other PACS systems across UNC Health Care.
  • View a NIL user guide at this Intranet link.
