Creating Harmony in Health Systems With Enterprise Imaging

Creating Harmony in Health Systems With Enterprise Imaging

Over the years, there has been significant technological advancement in the healthcare industry. However, for many healthcare systems, this advancement in technology is not accompanied by advancements in IT interoperability and security. This has resulted in inefficiencies across the system that prevent optimum utilisation of resources, which, in effect, affects the quality and delivery of patient care.

Health systems have been unable to fully utilise the benefits of clinical data. This is because of a lack of harmony which platforms like Agfa's Enterprise Imaging (EI) can help overcome. Agfa's EI platform is a single database, combined with a simple methodology to analyse the data to describe patient, study and results. Enterprise Imaging offers a platform that can help reduce resource redundancy in IT and improve data governance, accessibility and security.


Enterprise Imaging allows access to data through a reduced number of systems. This improves overall workflow and productivity as well as improves security. The goal is to streamline the process and make it simpler so that organisations can focus on security analysis and measures.


At present, healthcare systems often have to deal with multiple IT systems that each speak their own language and do not allow users to filter the information that is most relevant, and that could provide the most impact. This lack of interoperability slows down workflows and processes. IT systems are mainly designed to reduce complexities, but if not implemented properly, these devices, platforms and processes can increase, rather than decrease complexity.


Enterprise Imaging solves this problem. It allows different systems to work together and provide clinicians with the information they need a tithe time they need. It puts the focus on value-creating activities by performing the same tasks with fewer systems. This allows staff to shift their focus from time-consuming, administrative processes and dedicate their efforts on activities that could benefit patients.


Change is always difficult to implement and accept. In the healthcare industry, in particular, change management is generally initiated at the department level. But with Agfa's EI platform, companies can enable enterprise-wide change, and CIOs can create institutional transformation. This makes the process more successful and more efficient, enabling the healthcare system to grow and to provide better quality care to patients.


The goal is to elevate the ability of healthcare providers to deliver quality care. This platform allows that to happen by eliminating unnecessary costs and risky inefficiencies and by creating harmony across all the systems within an organisation.

I just got my ex husband back through the help of Dr Nkosi love spells Experts. My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr nkosi, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr nkosi. if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Nkosi for help now..Here his contact, WhatsApp him: +27820502562 {or} Email him at: fastsolu[email protected] ,his website:
