Agfa HealthCare Presents Consolidated Strategy for Enterprise Imaging for Cardiology at ESC Congress 2015

Agfa HealthCareAgfa HealthCare announces that at the congress of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) 2015 in London, it will present its consolidated strategy for Enterprise Imaging for Cardiology. The company will demonstrate how this strategy offers a value-based care solution that provides access to clinically relevant cardiology data that are spread across the care continuum; an enterprise platform that provides structured reporting and post-processing tools for invasive and non-invasive procedures; and a solution that enables meaningful collaboration and exchange of clinically rich cardiac data within the entire care team.

Single point of access and task-based workflow
Agfa HealthCare's Enterprise Imaging platform offers a care-centric workflow that is standards-based, improves interoperability and enables a comprehensive patient health record across departments within a single facility or between multiple facilities. Enterprise Imaging for Cardiology is a completely unified imaging platform that includes PACS, advanced image processing, integration of clinical information and reporting, all in one sophisticated platform. It offers cardiologists a single point of access to patient information from different sources, allowing them to quickly access a patient's complete cardiology file, generate a report and distribute it, all during one session, even from a remote location.

Next generation structured reporting modules provide support for non-invasive cardiac and vascular ultrasound reporting, deeply integrated into the Enterprise Imaging platform, while the task-based workflow matches how cardiologists work. It is adaptable, customizable, transparent and agile, and keeps track of details, priority rules and more.

Easy-to-use collaboration, chat and sharing functions keep the cardiologist connected with other cardiologists, technicians, clinicians, administrators and referring physicians, while mobile functionality allows images, ECGs and reports to be viewed on mobile devices, even with low bandwidth. The platform seamlessly integrates a range of TomTec, Medis and Invia specialty modules, covering everything from basic ultrasound, to cath lab, to advanced ultrasound, to nuclear cardiology and hybrid imaging tools.

ECGs as part of the web-enabled patient record
Agfa HealthCare will also show HeartStation ECG Management, its vendor-neutral data management solution that automates collection, processing, and storage of ECGs. By facilitating the transformation of data in an industry standard, full fidelity format, HeartStation helps eliminate information silos within the healthcare enterprise, elevating ECGs to the enterprise level as part of the patient's web-accessible record. It boosts productivity by making it easier and faster to display, edit, confirm, share and archive ECGs regardless of the acquisition device vendor.

"Imaging is proliferating, and in today's evolving healthcare model, enterprises need their imaging to support the shift towards care outcomes and value-driven, holistic, patient-centric care delivery," comments Stefan Goerss, Business Manager Radiology & Cardiology IT, EMEA of Agfa HealthCare. "A consolidated enterprise imaging approach helps ensure images have clinical relevance and gives caregivers fast access to this imaging data. Enterprise Imaging for Cardiology is part of that."
