Agfa HealthCare receives Medical Informatics Competitive Strategy Leadership of the Year Award

March 2, 2007 - The 2006 Frost & Sullivan Award for North American Medical Informatics Competitive Strategy Leadership of the Year has been awarded to Agfa HealthCare. Frost & Sullivan noted that "In 2005 Agfa HealthCare set in motion the execution of an ambitious, full-fledged strategy set to reinforce the company's position as a leading provider of medical informatics solutions for the healthcare enterprise. During 2006, the company, led by Bob Pryor, President of Agfa HealthCare, Americas, decisively embarked upon the projected growth path. Frost & Sullivan commends Agfa HealthCare's competitive strategy in the North American market and is proud to bestow upon Agfa HealthCare the North American Medical Informatics Competitive Strategy Leadership of the Year Award for 2007."

In selecting Agfa HealthCare for the award, Frost & Sullivan commented that the company successfully overcame "the key challenges facing the highly competitive PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) industry" by developing key services for PACS customers.

"Remarkably, Agfa HealthCare has remained ahead of the curve in light of the move of medical image and data management beyond the radiology department and into the wider healthcare enterprise. Agfa HealthCare has leveraged its expertise in radiology to develop departmental solutions (1) for cardiology, orthopedics and nuclear medicine (2) as the first steps towards comprehensive coverage of all clinical departments, addressing the need to provide advanced image and information management systems coupled with enterprise-wide connectivity. Through recent acquisitions, partnerships and in-house developments, Agfa is now able to cover all aspects of hospital information management," Frost & Sullivan said.

"Agfa HealthCare is honored to be recognized by Frost & Sullivan with this award. This award not only confirms our position as a leading provider of health IT services and solutions, but underscores and reaffirms the direction we as a company have mapped out for our customers and the industry," said David Chambers, vice president, Sales and Marketing Americas, Agfa HealthCare.

Note: Agfa's nuclear medicine solution is a works in progress
