A new agreement with DataFirst will  deliver automated migration services  for cardiology, significantly increasing  efficiency and quality of the migration  process. The companies will provide  data migration service capabilities and  archival storage solutions, enabling  healthcare facilities to benefit from a  rapid data migration process from aged  media and end of life archive devices.  

Cardiology data migration often places  a substantial demand on legacy technology  (i.e. jukebox technology, DVD, MOD,  etc.) as well as the often limited IT resource  pool in today's hospital environment.  Risks include irst's Hyper-  Migration solution, Agfa HealthCare  can significantly speed the process for  facilities in contrast to standard DICOM  query migrations. Now a large migration  can be fully complete in days, making  patient information available when  and where it is needed. This complete,  seamless and rapid realignment of data  storage is done on the back end without  an impact on the clinical workflow, while  meeting the current and future business  and clinical needs of the facility.  

"By simplifying the migration process  with a modern alternative, Agfa Health-  Care and DataFirst are enabling healthcare  facilities to enhance their clinical capabilities  by not only having quick online access  to necessary data, but by also enabling  them to more easily upgrade or switch to  a newer software system." said Charles  Wickens, Global General Manager, Cardiovascular  Business, Agfa HealthCare.  

In addition to providing migration services,  Agfa HealthCare will also provide  end-to-end support, upgrading the archive  hardware to fully-supported, industry  standard technology, eliminating obsolete  media, and improving archive performance,  ultimately resulting in improved  efficiencies. Also unique to Agfa Health-  Care's solution is that although data migration  is primarily focused on just cardiology  imaging data, now non-imaging data sets  like HL-7 reports can be migrated as well.
