Agfa HealthCare announced that it demonstrated its Enterprise Imaging for Cardiology—a unified imaging platform—at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress 2015 held August 29 to September 2 in London.
The unified imaging platform is intended to offer a care-centric workflow that is standards-based, improves interoperability, and enables a comprehensive patient health record across departments within a single facility or between multiple facilities. Enterprise Imaging for Cardiology includes PACS, advanced image processing, integration of clinical information, and reporting in one platform. It is said to offer cardiologists a single point of access to patient information from different sources, allowing them to quickly access a patient’s complete cardiology file, and generate a report and distribute it during one session, even from a remote location.
According to the company, the platform provides access to clinically relevant cardiology data that are spread across the care continuum; an enterprise platform that provides structured reporting and post-processing tools for invasive and non-invasive procedures; and enables collaboration and exchange of cardiac data within the entire care team. Chat and sharing functions connect the cardiologist with colleagues, while mobile functionality allows images, ECGs, and reports to be viewed on mobile devices. The platform integrates a range of TomTec, Medis, and Invia specialty modules, covering basic ultrasound, cath lab, advanced ultrasound, nuclear cardiology, and hybrid imaging tools.
Also demonstrated at the London event was Agfa HealthCare’s HeartStation ECG Management, a vendor-neutral data management system designed to automate collection, processing, and storage of ECGs.
