Agfa HealthCare's ICIS uniquely provides access, in clinically-relevant context, to multi-specialty patient imaging across the care continuum

  • ICIS unifies patient records by integrating and linking multi-facility, multi- departmental and multi-specialty imaging data, offering clinicians insight to support continuity and productivity of patient care.
  • Provider organizations can maximize the value their EMR investment can return with experienced clinical and IT consultancy services.
  • Agfa HealthCare delivers accessibility to patient care information, including images, to multiple stakeholders driving Meaningful Use compliance, clinical collaboration, and patient empowerment.

Leading the adoption of enterprise imaging information management solutions, Agfa HealthCare provides access, through the EMR, to create comprehensive, image-enabled medical records. This provides a longitudinal view of the patient's imaging throughout the enterprise, so that clinicians have greater insight for the clinical benefit of the patient.

During HIMSS, Agfa HealthCare will demonstrate the significant clinical advances and IT efficiencies enabled by ICIS, Agfa HealthCare's Imaging Clinical Information System. ICIS is the enterprise imaging choice of many leading hospital networks.

"In the delivery of care today, health systems around the world find themselves struggling to bring together data from various departments around the enterprise. Electronic health records are attempting to solve this problem for data that resides in a patient chart, but that solution leaves images behind," said James Jay, Vice President - Imaging Informatics, Agfa HealthCare. "As the use of images grows, so does the challenge of enabling access to images to all care providers. In addition, as more departments generate imaging data, simply consolidating storage does not solve the problem. Clinical workflow is needed to acquire, distribute and review these images. Agfa HealthCare is a leader in recognizing this challenge. ICIS, leveraging our XERO viewer, delivers a comprehensive framework to enable flexible workflows to bring images into every step of the care continuum. This gives clinicians a single point of access for all imaging data, integrated into the electronic health record, which can help reduce duplicate procedures and enable a highly efficient care process."
