Agfa HealthCare Launching Clinical Portal in North America

Platform provides enhanced image access, communication to patients and care providers

Agfa HealthCare, Portal, North America

April 6, 2015 — Agfa HealthCare announced that it will be launching its new clinical Portal in North America. The Agfa HealthCare Portal gives a patient-centric overview of information from different sources, to different stakeholders in the patient's care, inside or outside the hospital. It will also provide a comprehensive road map running from the Portal itself to true integrated care and the electronic health record (EHR).

By providing a framework for image and result delivery, the Portal will support an exchange of key information. Health information can be stored, retrieved and shared among patients, care delivery organizations (CDOs) and players within a community, region, state, country or throughout the world. It will also support Continuity of Care Document (CCD) and Continuity of Care Record (CCR) standards.

A Web-enabled software platform, the Portal can be accessed and used from a desktop computer or a mobile device, with native mobile interfaces for Google Android and Apple iPhone devices. It can be installed at the hospital, or can be hosted by Agfa HealthCare for the hospital with a service level agreement (SLA). Vendor-neutral, it can use standards-based communication to integrate to third-party EHR or other systems to aggregate information.

The Agfa HealthCare Portal will offer two distinct user views: the Patient View and the Care Provider View.

With the Patient View, patients can look at their own images, results and other aggregated information (e.g. labs); share them securely with another doctor (for a second opinion) or a caregiver; and upload information from a CD or even a 'medical selfie'. By empowering and satisfying patients, the Portal will also support the hospital to increase patient loyalty and to attract new patients.

The Care Provider View includes all of those functionalities, plus lab results access. It enhances collaboration amongst caregivers, including referring physicians.
