May 29, 2015 — Agfa HealthCare announced the launch of its Enterprise Imaging Exchange Program, which establishes a secure health information exchange network between multispecialty collaborating health providers to exchange and share medical imaging data. The solution will be on display at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) annual meeting, May 26-31, 2015, in Washington, D.C.
The suite enables healthcare organizations to realize the benefits of sharing clinical information without significant technology investments. Healthcare providers will experience improved workflow and regional collaboration through enhanced communication between doctors and facilities across the continuum of care. With clinical data access and retrieval, facilities can provide timely, effective, equitable, patient-centered care, while reducing costs by improving efficiency and productivity.
The program includes unlimited inbound and outbound image exchange without dependency on existing picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) or radiology information systems (RIS) as well as Agfa's enterprise class Xero universal image viewer.
Additional benefits — clinical, operational and financial — include leveraging the value of existing IT infrastructure, maintaining a predictable monthly expense, integrating directly with the electronic health record (EHR), and improving workflow and patient and physician satisfaction.
