Agfa HealthCare has signed a three-year group-purchasing contract with Vizient Supply. The goal of this contract is to provide Vizient’s approximately 362,000 acute and non-acute care provider members with special pricing for Agfa’s direct radiography (DR) products.

Agfa’s full portfolio of DR products is included in the contract, along with the third generation of Musica advanced digital x-ray image processing software and the workstation. With Musica advanced digital x-ray image processing technology, neither the technologist nor the radiologist needs to make post-processing adjustments.

“We at Agfa HealthCare truly appreciate the opportunity to continue meeting Vizient member needs for [DR],” says Jared K. Houk, North American vice president of imaging at Agfa.

“From our industry-leading Musica image processing software, which provides excellent image quality, while maintaining the potential to provide up to a 60% dose reduction, to the efficiency gains in transitioning to DR, we are committed to and focused on working with Vizient’s members to provide the best DR solutions that enable exceptional patient care,” Houk continues.
