March 17, 2016, Agfa HealthCare -- Agfa HealthCare announces today that the Admiraal De Ruyter Ziekenhuis (ADRZ) in Goes has become the first hospital in the Netherlands to install its Enterprise Imaging for Radiology solution. ADRZ is a general care hospital with four sites, 170 medical specialists and 2300 employees providing healthcare services in the Zeeland region of the Netherlands. The hospital’s transition went very smoothly, and the new solution is now up and running.

A single, sophisticated platform
As existing customer of Agfa HealthCare, ADRZ decided to transition its existing picture archiving and communication system (PACS) to the Enterprise Imaging for Radiology platform. Agfa HealthCare’s Enterprise Imaging for Radiology includes imaging management, reporting, advanced image processing and integration of clinical information, all in one sophisticated platform. This completely unified imaging solution offers 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. It offers clinicians a single point of access to patient information from different sources, allowing radiologists to quickly access a patient’s complete file, generate a report and distribute it, all during one session, even from a remote location.

The platform also includes the XERO Viewer, which is seamlessly integrated into the hospital's third-party electronic patient record (EPR). The Viewer provides cross-specialty image ‘anywhere, anytime’ access to images from any source, from within a single web viewer, so that caregivers can see the patient’s entire imaging story.

Careful preparation leads to 1-day switch-over
A team of some 20 people from the hospital’s radiology and ICT departments and from Agfa HealthCare collaborated closely to achieve the transition to Enterprise Imaging for Radiology. The extensive preparations included migrating around 1.8 million studies, building a complete infrastructure, training users, performing test runs, and more.

This careful work led up to November 28, when the existing system was switched off and Enterprise Imaging for Radiology switched on. The approximately 60 modalities and workstations were connected to the Enterprise Imaging for Radiology and tested. The hospital next began using the Enterprise Imaging for Radiology solution intensively, with everything moving smoothly.
