- Solution will optimize productivity, improve workflow and offer immediate access to all hospital files, from anywhere
- HYDMedia will allow the hospital to centralize its documents, whatever their type, source and format.
- The system will give the hospital better control over operational costs by strongly reducing printing and physical archiving space expenses.
- Traceability of access to and distribution of the hospital’s documentation will be enhanced.
Mortsel, Belgium, 02-12-2013 — /EuropaWire/ — Agfa HealthCare announces today that the CH Jean Rougier hospital in Cahors, France, is implementing its HYDMedia electronic archiving and healthcare document system. This solution will allow the hospital to digitize all documentation, regardless of source, type or format, creating a centralized electronic archiving environment. This electronic archiving environment will allow users and other authorized persons to instantaneously retrieve the hospital’s archived documents, eliminating the need to request and wait for the paper file. Everything is done with one single click, immediately and from any workstation.
Optimized document management and reduced operational costs
HYDMedia will also allow the CH Jean Rougier hospital to optimize its risk management workflow. This information will then be indexed and stored in the hospital’s digital archive. Both paper and digital documents will be available immediately electronically, and can be shared throughout the hospital community. This will help to reduce operational costs for the hospital.
“With HYDMedia we finally have a solution that answers our need to digitize our medical and administrative archives,” explains Mr. Boyer, Director of the Hospital. “This is the first step towards becoming a paperless hospital!”
“With this implementation, the CH Jean Rougier hospital joins other Agfa HealthCare customers who are already using HYDMedia, including the CH St Lo-Coutances, the CH Alès-Cévennes and the CH Jean Monnet, who are long-time customers,” comments Ingrid Merckx, Managing Director of Agfa HealthCare France. “Within the context of setting up regional healthcare networks (“communauté hospitalière de territoire” or CHT), which is endorsed by the French Ministry of Health, and evolving hospitals towards becoming paperless environments, these implementations confirm to us that there is a real need for an electronic archiving and document management system dedicated for hospitals and for the healthcare domain.”
