German Hospitals Go Paperless in Just Two Years

January 25, 2007 - Agfa HealthCare announces today that it has completed the initial phase of the ORBIS Hospital Information System (HIS) implementation at the Vivantes Netzwerk für Gesundheit GmbH, Germany's largest municipal hospital group and will complete the single source-solution with ORBIS RIS, establishing Vivantes as a paperless group of hospitals.

The aim of the project was to standardize the existing heterogeneous system arena by replacing it with a centralized Hospital Information System (HIS), a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), and a Radiology Information System (RIS), all from a single source.The introduction of ORBIS in the core medical activities of all nine Vivantes locations in the Berlin was accomplished in just two years' time. Vivantes' Operation Management department and part of the Radiology department, for example, are already using the new, centralized and paperless platform.
