Agfa HealthCare Upgrades ICIS Imaging Platform

Agfa Healthcare ICIS Archive Storage Imaging Information Technology

March 4, 2014 — Agfa HealthCare unveiled enhancements to its ICIS (Imaging Clinical Information System) at the 2014 annual meeting of the Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS). 

ICIS unifies patient records by integrating and linking multi-facility, multi-departmental and multispecialty imaging data. It provides the ability to capture, collaborate, manage and exchange images generated by a health system, usually directly through the electronic health record (EHR).

During HIMSS 2014, Agfa HealthCare showcased its vision for advancing universal image and data sharing throughout the health enterprise. One upgrade to its solution is ICIS Transfer, which provides CD import and web transfer of digital imaging and communication in medicine (DICOM) images, allowing reduction of foreign study management costs. Also making a debut is ICIS Vivid, ICIS’ Web and mobile device image capture technology. ICIS Vivid allows physicians on the move to capture metadata-rich medical images and automatically attach these images to the correct medical record. Also showcased was ICIS View’s Web-based Streaming Hybrid Video technology. This allows hospitals to store video in highly compressed MPEG4 formats and offers physicians the fine display controls of multi-frame cine.

Agfa HealthCare also showed ICIS Venue, which allows a federated patient view across multiple, any-vendor picture archiving and communications system (PACS) and image providers, allowing central access to distributed archives, requiring a vendor neutral archive (VNA). ICIS’s updated ILM engine gives providers more flexibility and power over the data they manage.

While electronic medical record systems have helped consolidate most patient data into one location, medical imaging IT systems has proved to be more difficult to replicate by large EMR vendors. This has made room in the market for third-party radiology IT vendors that allow easy integration with the larger EMRs like Epic and Cerner. This image shows Agfa's enterprise imaging system, leveraging its ability to be accessed anywhere with internet connection and pull images from radiology and surgery.
