University of North Carolina installs new Agfa Radiology Information System

Agfa HealthCare US : 11 June, 2007  (New Product)
The UNC Health Care department at the University of North Carolina is installing a new Radiology Information System (RIS) from Agfa.
The Agfa HealthCare solution will be integrated into its existing IMPAX Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) and TalkStation reporting solutions, both already in place.

'We were looking at replacement systems for our current infrastructure that would best improve the connectivity among the individual pieces, including our existing reporting system as well as our PACS', said Sandra Laws, PACS manager at UNC Health Care.

'We also needed the RIS to have the ability to communicate with our own proprietary clinical repository, WebCis'.

'Agfa HealthCare's RIS solution and the company as a whole have previously demonstrated they have the experience to implement complex solutions'.

'As a result we are very happy with the connectivity capabilities that Agfa HealthCare brings to this project'.

UNC Health Care expects the integration of the Agfa HealthCare systems with UNC's own proprietary clinical repository will result in improved throughput, as well as better reporting and event tracking.

The ability of Agfa HealthCare's system to provide online protocoling and a free-text search function was critical in the selection process.
UNC Health Care is eager to use the system to scan requisitions and other supporting documentation, in that way no longer requiring that the department has to store paper requisitions.

'This integration will improve the workflow throughout all UNC's departments', said David Chambers, vice president, Sales and Service at Agfa HealthCare Americas.

'The UNC team will now be able to tie all the pieces together to create a dynamic system that gives their physicians the opportunity to work more efficiently, ultimately providing a better experience for their patients'.
