Improving the Efficiency and Quality of Care through Clinical Data Access ERIC MAURINCOMME VICE PRESIDENT MARKETING & BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT AGFA HEALTHCARE
Agfa HealthCare – Who we are Agfa HealthCare, a part of the Agfa-Gevaert Group A leading provider of integrated IT solutions and state-of-the- art diagnostic imaging for hospitals and other healthcare Centres 5,600 employees Sales offices in over 100 markets worldwide 11 Global R&D Centres of Excellence
Agfa HealthCare’s integrated solution portfolio Integrated access Ability to access all necessary data about a patient, irrelevant of the systems that host it or the organization that owns it Integrated workflow Ability to coordinate and synchronize processes about a particular patient across boundaries: organizational (departmental and hospital) as well as clinical (patient having multiplicity of clinical conditions at a time) Integrated knowledge Ability to utilize the most up-to-date clinical content and practice information generated in any point of care QUALITYACCESS COST
Agfa’s Vision Store all clinically relevant data across the continuum of care Enable each institution to contribute agreed upon data elements so clinical collaboration, continuity of care and patient safety and privacy can be realized. Fully enable the EHR A unified, ubiquitous view of all patients’ encounters and episodes of care, enhancing the patient experience and promote better communication between clinicians and optimally support the clinical process.
Realities of Healthcare Today “The sheer number and size of images that have to be migrated has exploded.” “We need a new architecture to help our health organization keep up with imaging demands.” “ We have multi media and relevant data from all departments, specialties, and disciplines from different vendors across our healthcare enterprise.”

IMPAX Data Centre: Key benefits Clinical: Supports the reduction of medical errors Reduce order duplication Potentially lower the amount of radiation by eliminating redundant and medically un-needed procedures. consolidates and enables distribution of relevant clinical data to the clinician at the point of care. Operational: Leverages existing or disparate systems across the enterprise Connects key data elements at the point of care without modifications to the clinicians user interface. Financial: Saves money Fosters interoperability and reduces costly migrations Technical: Adherence to standards Transparency, integration, interoperability for data management Distribution and archiving for all DICOM data across the enterprise no matter the source.
Bioserveur : a Proven Solution Started as a regional project in France Connects Labs with GP’s Solves a real communication and inter-operability problem Figures: Operational since GP softwares 33 Lab softwares 600 labs 8500 GPs files/month
