“University Hospital Galway is a long-term customer of Agfa HealthCare. The timeframe for the project was very short: “we had to go live in six months!

The cooperation includes a managed services contract. With this contract, we have an onsite engineer and this works extremely well. They know our workflows. They are very familiar with our networks and the whole structure of all the applications that we have. That’s probably the key to the success of the project,”

The previous DICOM archive, with 20 years of images, has also been migrated into the Enterprise Imaging platform: “about 4.5 million studies, representing almost half a billion images mainly from radiology, but also from other departments,”

One challenge that arose when migrating the exams was ensuring that all studies have the same names. Ernest notes that for some studies, up to 50 different names had been used over the past decades.

“We mapped all those different names to one generic study name and procedure code, that is also used in the EMR: instead of thousands of codes, we now have less than 1000 EMR codes. So, all relevant prior studies can be easily retrieved.”
