Markische Kliniken integrates acute care clinics with Agfa’s Orbis solution

Agfa HealthCare UK : 11 April, 2008  (Application Story)
Markische Kliniken hospital group’s three acute care clinics in southern Germany have integrated their medical, nursing and administrative IT processes following the installation of Agfa HealthCare’s Orbis earlier this year.
The roll-out of Orbis across the group will serve to enhance the quality of patient treatment by providing fast and complete access to patients' histories, including all images and data.

The three hospitals, comprising the Markische Kliniken hospital group, have been progressively replacing their existing, and highly diverse, software with Agfa HealthCare’s integrated Orbis Hospital Information System (HIS) since the start of 2008. Multi-site implementation of the systems is planned to be completed in the second half of 2008.

The company will also be installing its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution, and a HYDMedia Document Management System (DMS) for direct data storage, which also serves as the basis for the transfer of archived data. Furthermore the clinics in Werdohl and Letmathe are being integrated via a Citrix SSL VPN Access Gateway.

Robert Schuwer, commercial manager of Markische Kliniken GmbH explained: 'What convinced us to opt for Agfa’s Orbis solution was the fact that it provides us with a highly integrated, yet flexible, IT-based control tool for our medical, nursing and administrative processes. With the HIS solution from Agfa HealthCare, we are not only increasing our economic efficiency, we are also enhancing the quality of the medical care in our clinics by freeing up resources and capacities.'

Reiner Niehaus, sales and marketing manager Agfa HealthCare Germany, commented: 'By selecting Orbis, the Markische Kliniken hospital group is underpinning its commitment to the ongoing integration of its medical and healthcare facilities. The process reengineering provided by Agfa HealthCare's integrated IT solutions will help the group meet high standards of care for many years to come. We have now successfully deployed Orbis in over 850 institutions and it has in excess of 500,000 daily users.'
