Agfa HealthCare announces the successful launch of its Enterprise Imaging for Radiology solution, with multiple hospitals in Belgium going live and more to follow. The platform simplifies the creation of a single comprehensive patient imaging record, empowering physicians to make informed decisions through multi-specialty collaboration, helping improve delivery of patient care and streamlining costs.
Step-by-step to Enterprise Imaging for Radiology
In Belgium, the platform has been implemented in healthcare facilities ranging from small, private practices to large, multi-site hospitals. Its modular approach to building and deploying makes it ideal for all different types of facilities, enabling them to move at their own pace to fulfill their enterprise strategy.
Pilot site AZ Sint-Rembert in Torhout was the first to receive the newest software, and provided positive and valuable feedback. The hospital found the scheduling module especially valuable.
The Klinik St. Josef in St. Vith was the first site to migrate from IMPAX to the new Enterprise Imaging for Radiology platform.
Multi-site CHIREC in Brussels is also an IMPAX customer: it is running Enterprise Imaging for Radiology in its newest site, SARE. Its goal is to upgrade all the sites that currently run IMPAX to the new platform. The hospital group has communicated that the most important benefit for it was the ability to begin building the Enterprise Imaging solution wherever it wanted.
AZ Alma (Sijsele/Eeklo) adopted Enterprise Imaging for Radiology to support its goal to fully automate workflow. It appreciated the pioneering speech recognition and sectional reporting of the solution.
Ziekenhuis Oost-Limburg (ZOL) is a multi-site hospital with a teaching facility, that relies on strong collaboration between its doctors. This dynamic and advanced hospital highlights the importance of the sectional reporting and workflow offered by the platform.
On the other side of the size spectrum is private practice of Doctor Van Lerberghe, with one radiologist. This facility uses Enterprise Imaging for Radiology for echography and mammography.
“Our Enterprise Imaging for Radiology solution takes a whole new approach to imaging management, bringing together radiology PACS (picture archiving and communication system), RIS (radiology information system), advanced 3D, voice recognition, VNA (vendor-neutral archive), image viewer and mobile functionality into a workflow-centric platform that the facility can adopt step-by-step, at its own speed,” says Kristoff Reyntjens, Sales Director Sales & Services Belux, Agfa HealthCare. “The speed of our success in Belgium following the launch of the platform highlights how it meets the diverse needs of healthcare providers in today’s complex environment.”
