Agfa highlights new image sharing technology
Dubai, January 22, 2014
Agfa HealthCare highlighted new technologies that enable healthcare providers to improve medical image sharing at a national level at a workshop in Dubai.
The Imaging Clinical Information System (ICIS) will enable them to view multidisciplinary image information by unifying the patient record across departments and create a true longitudinal patient-imaging record.
It is a workflow-centric enterprise imaging solution that unifies medical imaging and integrates it with clinical data across borders: regional, hospital or departmental, said a statement.
A expert presented the significant technical challenges of a modern multi-site healthcare organisation and how they were able to build a highly advanced medical imaging network.
Jean-Pierre Slabbaert, Agfa HealthCare’s director of IT for the Export region, said: “The ICIS technology enables healthcare providers to create, collaborate, exchange, and manage a comprehensive medical imaging record through the continuum of care. It is a solution that lets hospitals go beyond the borders of a single, individual department, enhancing care collaboration.”
Zyad Benaissa, managing director of Agfa HealthCare Solutions, Middle East, reflected on the longstanding relationships between Agfa HealthCare and the most important healthcare institutions in the region, including CCAD and the Dubai Health Authority (DHA).
“We introduced digital imaging to the region in 1999 with our first PACS installation in a radiology department. Since then, we have extended our installed base of imaging IT solutions across the Middle East.” - TradeArabia News Service
