• Agfa HealthCare is the only company to have held all four DIN-PACS contracts since 1998.
• Over its ten-year term, Agfa HealthCare’s DIN-PACS IV contract has an estimated maximum value of US $768 million.
• Agfa HealthCare is poised to deliver its advanced Enterprise Imaging platform in support of the complex evolution in care delivery systems for the U. S. government.

Agfa HealthCare, a leader and innovator in the medical imaging and healthcare IT space, today announced that the U.S. government has awarded the company its DIN-PACS IV (Digital Imaging Network/Picture Archiving and Communication System) contract. The contract term includes one five-year base period and one five-year option period. According to a recent announcement by the U.S. Department of Defense, the potential maximum value for Agfa’s contract is up to US $768 million over the ten years.

The DIN-PACS IV contract allows U.S. government healthcare providers to purchase diagnostic imaging IT and related technology solutions on-demand, providing flexibility, cost savings, and quality enhancement in service to its healthcare consumers.

“Agfa HealthCare has worked extremely hard over nearly 20 years to establish our dominant position in the U.S. government’s DIN-PACS market,” said Tim Artz, Vice President and General Manager of Agfa HealthCare’s Global Government Program. “The high value partnerships we have developed and continue to grow with our government customers demonstrate our unwavering commitment to deliver the most advanced solutions and level of quality and security that this complex, demanding market requires.”

Under the previous three DIN-PACS contracts, Agfa HealthCare has delivered more than $600 million in products and services. The new DIN-PACS IV contract includes departmental (e.g., radiology, cardiology, etc.) and enterprise imaging informatics solutions (e.g. VNA, image sharing, etc), integration services, and support programs to be used by U.S. Federal agencies.

Agfa HealthCare's prior DIN-PACS contracts have included projects for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Department of Justice, and other agencies requiring DIN-PACS products and services.

“Agfa HealthCare is honored to continue its leadership by delivering our innovative Enterprise Imaging platform to provide the highest quality care for veterans, active duty military members, and their families,” said Bill Corsten, President, Agfa HealthCare North America. "We eagerly look forward to working alongside these most valued customers, engaging the next round of challenges, and continuing to grow our mutual success.”

Over its 18-year relationship, Agfa HealthCare (agfahealthcare.com) has developed a strong DIN-PACS presence across a wide range of U.S. government facilities, advancing the quality of healthcare delivery with solutions installed at more than 200 DoD and VA medical treatment facilities, including 14 DoD/NATO sites in Europe, four of the VA's multi-facility Veterans Integrated Service Networks, and more than 30 Navy ships. Agfa has the longest-standing DIN-PACS license agreement relationship with the Federal government, and is the only vendor that has been serving the government continuously in this capacity since the program began.
