Opening day at the European Congress for Radiology in Vienna is perfect timing to share the results of the 2022 Europe PACS report by KLAS Research. The report highlights how the PACS market in Europe is evolving: To unify care delivery, many countries are pushing for HIT consolidation across regional groups of hospitals. At the same time, healthcare organizations are increasingly looking to expand their imaging strategies outside of radiology to bring together more departments and facilities at an enterprise level.
In the report Agfa HealthCare is confirmed to have one of the most expansive footprints, with strong customer bases. Moreover, Agfa HealthCare is validated for the largest imaging volumes—supporting customers handling around 4 million studies per year.
The KLAS report is based on the perspectives of 199 individuals representing 168 unique organizations across 25 European countries. We are delighted to share the KLAS Report lists Agfa HealthCare among top performers in terms of customer satisfaction and having one of the largest, fastest-growing footprints of all vendors measured.
We are proud these results clearly indicate that our unique Enterprise Imaging Platform and partnership approach is supporting customers across Europe, and we are committed to further enhance our partnerships to further drive imaging progress.
In addition, some regional results stand out.
