Embedding the XERO viewer into Agfa's EMR and EHR platforms creates an integrated point of access to a patient's clinical information and images
- Integrated XERO viewer* allows clinicians, specialists and other stakeholders to access patient imaging data from all sources, using a single viewer, device or EMR (electronic medical record)
- ORBIS EMR - building blocks of interoperability with powerful and flexible customisation features
- The easy-to-integrate and -use EHR Portal provides a full overview of the patient, while sharing and collaborating with all stakeholders in the patient care continuum.
- The care-centric Enterprise Imaging platform maximizes user productivity and clinical efficiency, while keeping cost of ownership exceptionally low.
- The Enterprise Imaging Radiology Suite is designed for clinical productivity, using a powerful task-based workflow.
Agfa HealthCare announces that it will focus on "Integrated Clinical and Visual Care" at EHI Live, being held from 3-4 November 2015 in Birmingham, UK.
Building on its 100+ years of experience, Agfa HealthCare continues to develop innovations with designs that keep the user and customer in mind. At EHI Live, Agfa HealthCare will show how this focus has resulted in concrete achievements, integrating XERO across both Agfa and non-Agfa platforms, offering access to both clinical and imaging information in a single solution. Agfa HealthCare will also highlight how its solutions are already successfully supporting healthcare facilities across the UK to achieve their objectives.
The integrated XERO viewer allows clinicians, specialists and other stakeholders to access patient imaging data from radiology and clinical specialities, using a single viewer, device or EMR (electronic medical record). Extensive search, sort and filtering criteria allow easy discovery and navigation plus good visibility. Key images, overlays and study comments can be enabled for fast and transparent communication.
ORBIS: integrated clinical and urgent care suite
With the ORBIS** enterprise-wide EMR solution, healthcare facilities have a powerful and flexible solution that helps them to enhance the quality of patient care by providing fast availability of patient data and supporting medical, diagnostic and care workflows. The modular design lets each facility implement and evolve at its own pace, without disruption. It facilitatescommunication, collaboration, shared knowledge, documentation and work allocation between all team members - even beyond the hospital walls.
EHR Portal: a unified, multi-agency gateway to integrated care and patient access
The easy-to-use and -integrate EHR Portal provides the first step to achieving a fully integrated care model. It gives a patient-centric overview of patient information from different sources, to all stakeholders in the patient's care, whether inside or outside the hospital, utilising the XERO viewer to display imaging data. It also provides a comprehensive road map running from the EHR Portal itself.
Enterprise Imaging platform: a new approach to solving image management challenges
Agfa HealthCare's completely unified Enterprise Imaging platform simplifies the creation of a single, comprehensive patient imaging record, empowers physicians to make informed decisions through multi-specialty collaboration, helps improve delivery of patient care and streamlines costs. It is powerful, highly scalable and intuitive, maximizing user productivity and clinical efficiency, while keeping cost of ownership for IT and management exceptionally low.
Enterprise Imaging Radiology Suite: a modern IT platform
Designed for productivity, Enterprise Imaging for Radiology provides a modern IT platform for radiology departments. It brings together radiology PACS (picture archiving and communication system), RIS (radiology information system), advanced 3D, voice recognition, VNA (vendor-neutral archive), viewer and mobile functionality into a workflow-centric platform that the facility can adopt step-by-step, at its own speed.
"Our theme of 'Integrated Clinical and Visual Care' shows how we can use the strength of our solutions and expertise to develop new ways to meet healthcares' evolving needs, innovatively yet in a way that is familiar and easy for users," says Grant Witheridge, General Manager of Agfa HealthCare UK. "We are proud that this approach has allowed us to successfully deploy solutions in healthcare facilities across the UK, including City Hospitals Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust, which was the first in the UK to integrate and install our Enterprise Imaging solution; Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, which implemented a high-availability PACS and Enterprise Imaging platform with VNA; andSheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, which has not only implemented our Enterprise Imaging for Radiology solution, but has also become a reference site for our IT portfolio!"
