At HIMSS23, Chicago, AGFA HealthCare, the Enterprise Imaging pioneer and innovator, will showcase how its latest generation of the Enterprise Imaging platform (AGFA EI) supports health systems’ goals to deliver sustainable and superior care outcomes, across local community networks or geographically distributed organizations.
Introducing the Imaging Health Network™ – AGFA HealthCare introduced the single-source-of-truth Imaging Health Record™ (IHR) to empower clinicians with frictionless access to imaging information, so they can find their flow and stay focused on patients. The Imaging Health Network™ (IHN) further advances seamless access to patient imaging across high-volume health networks and affiliates.
The Imaging Health Network™, is an aggregated community health record for medical imaging, in which all contributing providers publishes their portion of the patient’s journey. At each step along this journey, the patient is assured that the physician has access to the entire cross-provider imaging record. With the IHN in place, care providers can save, view, and access patient imaging information in real-time, supporting clinical history confidence.
The latest generation AGFA HealthCare Enterprise Imaging breaks the old paradigm of routing data to the user and instead brings the ‘user to the data’ via real-time streaming technology.
Mark Burgess, President North America, AGFA HealthCare explains: “Our vision for Enterprise Imaging is to act at the intersection of patient care and technology. We believe that clinicians deserve a ‘Life in flow’, that enables them to stay focused on the task at hand, without the unnecessary distractions that old-school imaging systems create. The AGFA EI Imaging Health Network™ creates an extended community of shared patient imaging to advance sustainable care. AGFA EI is the backbone that health systems can build upon as they adopt the benefits of the Imaging Health Record™, for all medical specialties that generate or consume imaging”.

Dan Brown, Chief Technology Officer, AGFA HealthCare adds: “With a single, clinical database platform, we can enable a leaner organization that supports each and every person in the health system to be the best version of themselves. Fewer IT systems means less resources and time are required for management, while fewer applications reduces the requirements for servers, storage and infrastructure support. Our pioneering technology provides a true ‘less is more’ approach, delivering what health systems are demanding in order to operate successfully in today’s challaging care and financial environment.”
