Enterprise Imaging converges multi-department workflow to empower image information management via a single platform
Mortsel, Belgium, 21-Jul-2016 — /EuropaWire/ — Agfa HealthCare Enterprise Imaging’s single platform consists of modules designed to optimize interoperability and enable hospital groups to share unified patient records within the EHR. – Clinical Portal provides information from different sources for all care providers, inside and outside the hospital, for a patient-centric view of information and actions.
Agfa HealthCare’s Enterprise Imaging solution will be on display at RADaim 2016 which takes place July 22-24 on the Gold Coast, Queensland.
Hospitals and health systems are continually seeking fresh approaches to reduce unnecessary costs and improve outcomes. By empowering image information management with a single, converged platform, Agfa HealthCare Enterprise Imaging is disrupting the legacy departmental PACS and VNA market to meet the challenges of today’s greater economic and quality of care imperatives to deliver the right care for the right patient, at lower cost.
Care centric, standards-based workflow platform
Agfa Healthcare Enterprise Imaging‘s distinctly unique approach to image management delivers a completely consolidated image management solution that provides a range of services such as RIS, PACS, Reporting, VNA, Universal Viewing, Advanced Image Processing, Peer Collaboration, Patient Engagement, and Clinical Content into one single platform.
Its modular design pre-empts the expanding needs of healthcare systems and offers hospitals and networks a long-term, value-based solution that aligns with their EHR strategy by enabling multiple disciplines, including cardiology, radiology, ophthalmology and gastroenterology, to work and collaborate within the same consolidated platform.
Through open APIs and an on-going commitment to industry standards, the platform will free the information trapped within departmental silos making it available in one centralised, consolidated system, potentially reducing cost, management complexity and the need for multiple integrations. Hospitals and health systems have the opportunity to realise monetary savings in hardware and license fees, security risk mitigation and greater collaboration across the enterprise.
Agfa’s solution is designed with contemporary healthcare delivery in mind, supporting integrated care, enabling patient engagement and delivering immediate value through a unified, secure technology. The solution empowers clinicians to make informed decisions through collaboration that is no longer constrained by specialty or geography.
Patient-centric overview from different sources
Also highlighted at the show will be Agfa HealthCare’s Portal which provides a further gateway to integrated care. The Agfa HealthCare Portal is an easy to use, web-browser and apps-based mobile health application that is designed for both patients and physicians.
It offers care providers, referring physicians and patients “anywhere, anytime” access to the patient’s health information from a variety of sources, so that everyone involved in a patient’s care — physicians, nurses, physiotherapists, home care providers, and the patients themselves — will have quick and easy access to all of the patient’s health information.
Agfa HealthCare subject matter experts will be on hand to answer any of your Enterprise Imaging questions. Please visit Agfa HealthCare at RADaim 2016 in booth #5.
