Alliance will help hospitals to better manage radiology resources, improve clinical productivity and streamline diagnostic imaging workflow management.

Adding RTM functionality to Agfa HealthCare’s IMPAX solution will enable organisations to manage and balance their radiologists workload automatically.
IMPAX EPS increases productivity of your radiology department by managing diagnostic reading and reporting workloads ensuring the appropriate radiologist is assigned studies matching their expertise.
Real Time Medical solutions automate and optimise management of workloads and workflows using context-awareness.

Agfa HealthCare has announced that it signed an agreement with Real Time Medical (RTM) to support the needs of collaborating or consolidated hospitals and imaging networks. RTM is providing its patented, context-aware workflow management functionality, methodologies and algorithms which will power Agfa HealthCare’s next generation IMPAX Enterprise Productivity Suite (EPS).

IMPAX EPS, powered by Real Time Medical, is designed to help improve radiology productivity and quality of diagnosis by managing the diagnostic imaging workflow across disparate systems and networks. This includes diagnostic reading and reporting workloads within an organisation as well as across distributed picture archiving and communication system (PACS) environments.

The combined Agfa HealthCare and Real Time Medical solution rapidly integrates new hospitals and clinics for faster returns on healthcare infrastructure investments. The solution will also help clients address growing pressure to lower costs and improve reporting quality.
“RTM is a leader in workflow management software solutions,” says James Jay, Global Vice President, Imaging IT Solutions at Agfa HealthCare. “This alliance between our two companies will allow healthcare facilities to optimise their workflow and maximise their resources to enhance their productivity and improve the accuracy of their service.”

“We are delighted to be working with Agfa HealthCare as part of this innovative and forward thinking initiative,” says Ian Maynard, CEO and co-founder, Real Time Medical. “By combining our own strengths in diagnostic imaging workflows and context-aware workflow management with the flexibility and functionality of IMPAX, we can now offer healthcare enterprises a distinctive solution that addresses many of today’s productivity challenges. Our combined solution will help institutions drive more value from their existing PACS/RIS investments, now and into the future.”
