Vocada and Agfa HealthCare reach CTRM distribution agreement

Agfa HealthCare US : 08 June, 2007  (New Product)
Agfa HealthCare and Vocada have reached an agreement to provide integrated solutions through IMPAX for critical test result management (CTRM).
A market leader in CTRM solutions, Vocada's Veriphy is now available as an integrated offering with Agfa HealthCare's IMPAX, providing radiologists with improved methodologies for test result distribution and verified notification.

Vocada's CTRM solution verifies the communication of critical test results from a reporting clinician to the responsible ordering clinician in time to benefit the patient.

The integration of Veriphy with IMPAX can lead to faster diagnosis, playing a significant role in streamlining patient care and enhancing staff productivity.

The integration supports radiology, cardiology, and clinical labs.

'We are pleased to partner with Agfa HealthCare', said Peter White, CEO of Vocada.

'Agfa HealthCare brings a significant healthcare presence and a reputation as an innovator in radiology and cardiology IT'.

'The integration of our companies' products can streamline patient care and make clinicians more productive'.

The integrated IMPAX / Veriphy solution supports The Joint Commission (formerly Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations) national Patient safety goals of improved communication among care-givers.

Hospital users report that their use of Veriphy has earned them high praise from Joint Commission accreditation surveyors.

In June the Joint Commission, through its Joint Commission Resources affiliate, introduced a new educational video that provides an overview of CTRM for hospital administrators and clinicians.

The Joint Commission sees CTRM technology as an important advance in supporting patient safety.

'With Vocada's Veriphy software integrated into the IMPAX suite, Agfa HealthCare demonstrates its ongoing commitment to provide the technologies and services than can help deliver more desirable results to the healthcare community', said Lenny J Reznik, director of Enterprise Image and Information Systems, Agfa HealthCare, Americas.
