March 20, 2017 — Agfa HealthCare announced the release a new version of its Enterprise Imaging for Cardiology platform at the American College of Cardiology ACC.17 expo, March 17-19 in Washington, D.C. Customer-driven enhancements include new structured reporting modules for congenital echocardiology and nuclear cardiology.

The suite is part of the Enterprise Imaging converged platform, which offers a care-centric workflow that is standards-based, improves interoperability and enables a comprehensive patient health record across departments within a single facility or between multiple facilities.

With Enterprise Imaging for Cardiology, cardiologists have a robust environment providing a single point of access to patient information from different sources. They can quickly retrieve a patient's complete cardiology file, generate a report and distribute it, all during one session, even from a remote location. Images, reports and relevant, sophisticated toolkits are supported by the task-based workflow that aligns with and supports their clinical workflow.

The new features provide support for congenital echocardiology and nuclear cardiology, deeply integrated into the Enterprise Imaging platform.

At ACC.17, Agfa HealthCare also showed an early concept for automated structured reporting based on natural language processing (NLP) and cognitive analytics, a work in progress in collaboration with IBM Watson Health. This collaboration illustrated how clinicians may be able to use normal dictation methods for reporting and still achieve structured report, as well as structured data using a natural language processing and cognition-based algorithm powered by IBM Watson, to convert dictated reports into structured data.
