Italian hospital installs Agfa Orbis solution for inpatient management

Agfa HealthCare Benelux : 23 October, 2007  (New Product)
Agfa HealthCare has installed its Orbis Hospital Information System (HIS) at its Italian reference site, the Ospedale di Lecco hospital group.
The solution is now live at one of the three hospital facilities of the group, the Manzoni Hospital (Ospedale Manzoni di Lecco), which features 681 beds of the 1,019 total beds supported by the hospital group.

The first installation phase at the hospital, which started at the beginning of March 2007 and has now successfully been brought to an end, was focused on inpatient and day-hospital management.

To help streamline the facility's workflow and data management, three Orbis modules (Master Data and Security, Ward Graphic and Order Entry and Result Reporting) have been installed in the General Surgery and General Medicine departments.

Orbis has been successfully integrated with the hospital's existing IT systems and in particular with the Admission, Discharge and Transfer System (ADT), the Emergency Room solution and the existing Intranet of the hospital.

The personnel of the two departments, which features 200 doctors and nurses, are using Orbis to assign patients to rooms and beds and to order examinations to the Laboratory Information System or consultancy visits via the hospital Intranet. All the corresponding reports are transferred to the Orbis Patient Folder. In the second project phase, to be finalised by the year end, Orbis will be extended to include Medical Documentation (including Diagnosis and Procedures coding) and Nursing Documentation (including Vital Signs).

Pietro Caltagirone, CEO of the Ospedale di Lecco, stated: 'Thanks to the partnership with Agfa HealthCare, the Manzoni Hospital has reached another milestone on its path towards excellence and continuous enhancement of its healthcare services, which started with an EN ISO 9001:2000 (European Quality Management System) certification and with the adherence to the international accreditation standards (JCAHO). The hospital began analysing and standardising its healthcare documentation in 2000 and Orbis is an integral part of this evolution. The Agfa HealthCare Hospital Information System (HIS) will enable us to further optimise diagnosis and care processes.'

Andrea Fiumicelli, executive vice president of Agfa HealthCare, added: 'With the introduction of Orbis at the Ospedale Manzoni di Lecco in Italy, we have once again demonstrated our capabilities to the Italian and other European markets. Agfa HealthCare remains a first choice for organizations in the European healthcare sector that are planning healthcare-IT change over projects. Regardless of their size and specific needs, we are delivering on our promises to our customers.'
