Customers can now achieve proven image-enabled longitudinal patient records from community hospitals to Health Information Exchanges (HIEs)

Agfa ICIS EMC Select Program Electronic Medical Records

December 20, 2012 — Agfa HealthCare announced participation in the EMC Select program, enabling customers to purchase Agfa HealthCare's industry-leading ICIS solution through EMC Select. With the growing need to provide enterprise-wide access to all images, regardless of where created or stored, healthcare organizations can now leverage Agfa HealthCare's enterprise imaging and clinical workflow solutions with EMC Atmos, EMC Isilon, EMC VNX and EMC VMAX arrays.

Workflow efficiencies and images in context with patient information help healthcare providers make more informed care decisions.

The EMC Select program makes it easier for organizations to acquire pre-tested, third-party "solution completers" that can be purchased with EMC hardware, software and services. Agfa HealthCare's ICIS helps healthcare organizations, including HIEs, to go beyond legacy image management, distribution and vendor-neutral archiving technology to achieve full enterprise image access. Together, Agfa ICIS and EMC infrastructure products create workflow efficiencies and provide images in context with patient information, helping health care providers to make more informed care decisions. The EMC Select program will offer Agfa HealthCare's ICIS platform which allows the workflow, capture, storage, exchange and access of medical imaging information in electronic medical records (EMR), electronic health records (EHR) and HIE environments. The platform will also provide an enterprise next generation VNA, XERO Web-based image viewer and migration services.

Meeting ever increasingly complex clinical and regulatory requirements.

"Today's healthcare providers are looking for solutions beyond electronic medical records to address how medical images and their associated data are captured, stored, viewed, shared and accessed," said Lenny J. Reznik, director of Enterprise Imaging Information North America, Agfa HealthCare. "Agfa HealthCare's ICIS platform provides healthcare organizations of any size with comprehensive image management regardless of where the images were created or are stored. As a member of the EMC Select program, Agfa HealthCare's depth of experience in clinical image and system integration with EMC infrastructure products will help our customers save money while meeting ever increasingly complex clinical and regulatory requirements."

"Agfa HealthCare's advanced medical imaging management solution combined with EMC infrastructure products delivers customers the highest levels of performance, availability, security, and virtualization-all requirements to meet the demands of imaging departments" said Don Lamburn, director, EMC Select Program. "We are pleased to have Agfa HealthCare join the EMC Select Program."
