We are proud to announce that Agfa HealthCare has been named to the Leaders Category in the IDC MarketScape: U.S. Enterprise Medical Imaging 2022-2023 Vendor Assessment (doc #US48168021e, November 2022).
According to the IDC MarketScape report vendors should:
“Consider Agfa when you are a medium-sized to large healthcare provider looking for a platform-based solution with a differentiated level of intelligence that promotes a more collaborative medical imaging work environment.”
Agfa HealthCare has been recognized by the IDC MarketScape for the following strengths:
Enterprise Imaging Platform builds on Agfa’s long-standing domain experience in medical imaging IT. The solution combines connected (cross) enterprise care, converged multispecialty support, an adaptable automated workflow, and disease-oriented augmented intelligence across the platform. The resulting capabilities (e.g., real-time collaboration and communication, multidisciplinary imaging for 15+ service lines, anytime-anywhere access, AI-enabled rules-based workflow automation, modular deployment) differentiate Agfa’s solution. One customer said, “I took a trip a few times to RSNA and HIMSS, and Agfa was the only vendor at the time that seemed to understand the concept of enterprise imaging.” This perception of Agfa having a robust, vendor-neutral platform with capabilities that can scale with modern-day requirements stood out in interviews.
One customer said, “I took a trip a few times to RSNA and HIMSS, and Agfa was the only vendor at the time that seemed to understand the concept of enterprise imaging.”
Agfa’s RUBEE for AI embeds “augmented intelligence” capabilities (advanced visualization, workflow orchestration, automated triage, smart hanging protocols, automated reporting, critical finding notifications, and specialty imaging packages) into the solution. Combining AI-driven automation with disease-oriented AI analytics helps customers generate more insight and practice better evidence-based medicine than traditional imaging workflows.
Agfa’s XERO modules help enable enterprisewide collaboration between local healthcare professionals and external stakeholders. The XERO Exchange Network (XEN) allows image and report sharing at any time, which promotes regional and local collaboration between stakeholders (e.g., clinicians, patients, and other providers).
Furthermore, the solution is FHIR enabled and has an open API ecosystem, which simplifies the ability for the vendor and its customers to integrate and improves interoperability. Agfa also holds many alliances and partnerships, which extend its ecosystem orientation even further, including with Microsoft Azure, AWS, Oracle, and Google, in addition to hardware OEMs (Dell, HPE, and Barco) and others (Philips Forcare, Qaelum, TOMTEC, Ascend, Cordiana, and MediReport).
