• Agfa HealthCare helps healthcare providers aggregate, deliver and analyze multimedia clinical data across the complete continuum of care - Clinicians can quickly access real time and complete longitudinal patient information regardless of where care is provided - Patients benefit with access to a complete picture of their health, for a better experience and higher level of engagement with their care team

(HIMSS 2013, Booth #3741) Agfa HealthCare announces today new solutions to assist healthcare providers in meeting the demands of an evolving healthcare landscape, including Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). By providing solutions that better engage clinicians and patients, as well as delivering disparate data to a single desktop, Agfa HealthCare is helping to accelerate the transformation of healthcare.

In the delivery of care today, health systems find themselves struggling to bring together data from different care locations and various departments across the enterprise. Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Health Information Exchanges (HIE) are attempting to solve this problem, but commonly these solutions leave medical images behind. As the use of imaging grows, so does the challenge of ensuring that all care providers have access to images along with the clinical data in context.

Better experience for clinicians and patients
With Agfa HealthCare's new Clinical Portal and Patient Portal• powered by Orion Health, ICIS (Imaging Clinical Information System) now provides a better experience for clinicians and patients with faster access to critical information including clinical data, scheduling, medical images, and reports. Together, the Agfa HealthCare Clinical Portal and Patient Portal seamlessly extract data from large distinct systems and provide clinicians and patients with a single point of access to the longitudinal patient record. The Agfa HealthCare Clinical Portal provides clinicians with insight into a patient's care history, which can help eliminate the ordering of duplicate procedures, reduce costs and improve patient safety and care delivery.

A complete enterprise imaging solution
Furthermore, Agfa HealthCare's ICIS provides a comprehensive clinical imaging value chain from study acquisition to access by the clinician. ICIS is a complete enterprise imaging solution that unifies the patient record by integrating and linking multi-facility, multi- departmental and multi-specialty imaging data, offering clinicians insight to support continuity and provide higher quality patient care. With ICIS, all images, including radiology, ophthalmology, pathology and others, - are part of each patient's electronic medical record.

"Our focus at Agfa HealthCare is on facilitating improved patient outcomes through integrated, patient-centric, open-standards based healthcare IT solutions," says Lenny J. Reznik, Director of Enterprise Imaging, Agfa HealthCare US. "We apply our deep experience in integration and imaging informatics to create solutions that provide collaborative and shared workflows between multiple stakeholders whether within a healthcare organization, a network of care delivery, or an entire region such as with Accountable Care Organizations."

In addition to providing a single view of all patient imaging information, the new Agfa HealthCare Clinical Portal and Patient Portal also enhance the delivery of patient care and engagement by providing more complete and timely information to patients and the healthcare enterprise. Patients will be empowered to be proactive in their health care, and clinicians, with access to the patient's complete medical history, may now provide care based on better informed decision making.

"With patient engagement increasingly being a core strategy for better care delivery, patients, their families, and personal care support teams will be able to benefit from secure access to their medical records and medical images," adds Reznik. "With the Agfa HealthCare Clinical Portal and Patient Portal, providers have the tools they need to foster patient-centered interaction between themselves and their patients and facilitate patient engagement."

The Agfa HealthCare Clinical Portal and Patient Portal are offered as part of the strategic relationship between Agfa HealthCare and Orion Health announced last year.
