Mortsel, Belgium March 22, 2016 -- Agfa HealthCare announces today that it has signed a new, 10-year contract with The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust, under which the Trust’s Agfa HealthCare IMPAX picture archiving and communication system (PACS) will be replaced with its Enterprise Imaging for Radiology Suite, including the XERO zero-footprint viewer technology. Enterprise Imaging for Radiology will enable greater connectivity and collaboration between the Trust’s two main hospital sites as well as with the Trust’s outlying clinics.

Collaboration across multiple sites
The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust provides acute hospital care for almost 500,000 people from Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and mid Wales. Its two main hospital sites are the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital in Shrewsbury and the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford, which together count just over 800 beds. The Trust also has several outlying outreach and community clinics. It employs over 5000 people, including 571 physicians and dentists (FTE), 1383 nursing and midwifery staff (FTE) and 611 scientific, technical and therapies staff (FTE).

Previously, the Trust implemented Agfa HealthCare’s IMPAX PACS. The PACS currently contains over 78 million images and almost 3 million studies.

A single, sophisticated platform and VNA
To increase collaboration between its sites and to realise cost savings, the Trust has signed a new 10-year contract with Agfa HealthCare to replace IMPAX with the Enterprise Imaging for Radiology platform. The agreement was signed in December 2015.
Enterprise Imaging for Radiology takes a distinct new approach to imaging management by delivering a completely unified imaging platform that provides PACS, reporting, advanced image processing and integration of clinical information all in one sophisticated solution. Powerful, seamless and highly intuitive, it optimizes productivity for users, while offering a low total cost of ownership for IT and management.

Central to the platform is the vendor neutral archive (VNA), which delivers an intelligent storage solution that provides a genuine cross-enterprise imaging solution. All images can be indexed, stored and retrieved through a number of applications. This delivers greater flexibility and makes images available to anyone with access and permissions to see them. It helps reduce silos of information and provides a more complete picture of the patient.
