IMPAX is a proprietary software for use at medical facilities using a digital radiology imaging system and supporting both local and remote access. The software allows clinicians to enhance their workflow through various image and communication functions. The client can connect to the PACS server from across office locations via thin and fat client technology.

Data is stored on the IMPAX Database Server which is compatible with Oracle Database or Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Server database. The IMPAX Database Server stores the central database used by all components in the cluster and maintains a record of all database transactions in transaction log files.
