• Solution links new, pathology slide scanning device with dedicated analytical workstation to enhance data sharing of radiology and pathology images;
• Leverages Agfa HealthCare’s PACS, informatics and enterprise imaging and distribution expertise;
• Goal is to facilitate multidisciplinary collaboration.

Agfa HealthCare announces today a three-year collaboration with the pathology department of the Enfant-Jésus and Saint-Sacrement Hospitals to conduct research for a new solution designed to integrate digital pathology into the diagnostic workflow. The goal of the two organizations is to create a complete, single view of the patient pathology information that will improve workflow and communication for the clinicians on the care team, to ultimately complement clinical decision making.

"We are happy to be engaged in this long-term relationship with Agfa HealthCare and its partner TRIBVN, an imaging solutions company, on this much needed solution for pathology," said Dr. Bernard Têtu, Head of Pathology, Enfant-Jésus and Saint-Sacrement Hospitals, Canada. "We look forward to achieving positive results, bringing clinical benefits for patients, improving the working conditions for pathologists and validating a solution that can ultimately be rolled out universally at facilities across Canada."

One complete, single view of patient pathology information
Currently there are multiple types of pathology images, some digital and some not, that can be stored in various locations across a facility. Pathologists and clinical researchers at Enfant-Jésus and Saint-Sacrement Hospitals will be using the new Agfa HealthCare solution to digitize all of the images and enable them to be kept in one central location; providing physicians with a complete view of a patient's information. Additionally, they will study the benefits to communication for the care team, seeking to improve patient outcomes by fostering better collaboration among pathologists, oncologists, surgeons, radiologists and any other care team member.

"An innovator in medical imaging, Agfa HealthCare is proud to be on the forefront of this necessary digital research and to be working alongside the leading researchers at Enfant-Jésus and Saint-Sacrement Hospitals," said Andy Hind, Vice President, Agfa HealthCare Canada. "We are leveraging proven technologies along with our core expertise in image storage, access and distribution, and anticipate positive results from this study."
