Mortsel, Belgium/Greenville, SC – 19 June 2014 – 16:00 CET

  • Integration unites OnBase, an industry-leading enterprise content management (ECM) solution, with Agfa HealthCare’s imaging clinical information system (ICIS), connecting patient medical records and medical images within the EHR
  • Joint solution provides real-time access to a patient’s full medical history across the hospital enterprise, enhancing decision-making and care while lowering costs

Agfa HealthCare Corp. announced today a new collaboration with OnBase to integrate the “gold standards” in enterprise imaging and enterprise content management technologies to showcase the vast potential of a fully integrated, “document + image” electronic health record (EHR).

Workflow-centric platform aligns images and data across the enterprise
Born from a shared vision that effective healthcare requires access to complete, longitudinal patient records, Agfa HealthCare is uniting its ICIS platform with OnBase to create a workflow-centric platform that aligns imaging and data within the EHR and across the enterprise.

“Our integration of medical images in OnBase as well as integration of documents into Agfa HealthCare’s ICIS platform will show how Agfa HealthCare empowers caregivers to view the complete longitudinal health information record in context,” explains Lenny J. Reznik, director, enterprise imaging and information solutions, Agfa HealthCare North America. “This alignment of clinical information and medical images, along with the ubiquity of secure access, should be the new norm in healthcare - not the exception.”

Improved delivery of patient care

Agfa HealthCare’s ICIS is a new, comprehensive approach to enterprise imaging management that delivers a workflow-centric platform to make multispecialty image data readily available to physicians across the continuum of care. This model supports the potential clinical and resource benefits of imaging that are provided by an EHR.

“Our integration with Agfa HealthCare Corp. provides healthcare organisations with an enterprise medical view by providing a single point of access to medical images, discrete data and related content,” said Susan deCathelineau, vice president of sales and services, Hyland, creator of OnBase. “This enterprise view enables clinicians to make faster and more informed decisions based on more complete patient information, resulting in improved delivery of patient care.”
