From 1867 to 2017, Agfa HealthCare has built up a century-and-a-half of experience, which has been put to work to enable "Care You Can See". At Arab Health 2018, the company will demonstrate its comprehensive portfolio of solutions, including its innovative digital radiography systems powered by MUSICA image processing, the converged Enterprise Imaging platform with specialized departmental workflows, and Integrated Care solutions supporting value-based care needs.

Digital radiography solutions: innovation meeting real needs

At the Agfa HealthCare booth, the entire direct radiography (DR) portfolio will be demonstrated via handy touchscreen videos. The comprehensive range includes solutions allowing any healthcare enterprise to experience the benefits of DR. Revolutionary Dynamic MUSICA* image processing now handles moving images, for greater diagnostic confidence.

The new, cost-effective, mobile DR 100e* offers high-quality imaging, lightweight panels and an excellent workflow. The smaller footprint is ideal for space-limited environments like the ICU and pediatrics. Two versions are available: analog and digital.

Agfa HealthCare's range of DR detectors enables a cassette-less DR workflow, with the resulting productivity benefits. The range includes a choice of fixed, tethered and wireless detectors, with either Cesium Iodide (CsI) or Gadolinium Oxy-Sulphide (GOS) technology. CsI also offers the potential for dose reduction[1].

In computed radiography (CR), a complete solution will be demonstrated, comprising the CR 15-X, MUSICA workstation and DRYSTAR 5302 imager. The solution's modular yet robust design provides high image quality, adjustable speed and a user-tuned workflow.

Enterprise Imaging: facilitating communication and collaboration

Visitors to Arab Health 2018 can discover how the award-winning Enterprise Imaging platform, with specialized departmental workflow and comprehensive image management services, enhances clinical collaboration and communication, along the care continuum. Both Enterprise Imaging for Radiology and Enterprise Imaging for Multi-specialties will be showcased.

The Enterprise Imaging Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) consolidates all imaging data, from multiple systems, departments, facilities and vendors, into a central clinical data foundation, and Image Exchange allows the exchange of images within and beyond the hospital walls, between clinicians and towards patients.

The HYDMedia Enterprise Content Management solution enables shared access to all patient documentation and can function as a fully integrated solution with the Enterprise Imaging VNA.

Tools that can be integrated into the platform include a patient radiation dose monitoring solution and Business Intelligence, which allows to leverage the wealth of clinical data in the platform, through standard and customized reports and live dashboards.

Integrated Care: shared access to all patient data

With Agfa HealthCare's Integrated Care solutions, healthcare enterprises can harness the power of the data existing in their systems and platforms, and use it to support their value-based care needs. The Agfa HealthCare Engage Suite makes information from different sources accessible for all care providers and patients, inside and outside the hospital.

"As we mark 150 years of experience, we are pleased to demonstrate at Arab Health 2018 how we have put our insight and experience to work answering the evolving needs of healthcare organizations, within and outside the hospital walls," comments Franz Tiani, General Manager Export Region of Agfa HealthCare. "Our comprehensive portfolio truly shows the reality of 'Care You Can See', and of our ongoing commitment to developing solutions that support the delivery of excellent, efficient patient care along the care continuum."

Innovations in AI, mobile and cloud computing to redefine patient and clinician experience

Increased focus by care providers on patient outcomes, cost, and efficient delivery models continue to demand innovative approachs to clinical workflow solutions. Advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI)**, mobility, and cloud computing are promising to redefine patient and clinician experience and challenge traditional care delivery models. Patients demand interaction that is insightful, personal, tailored to their care, and responsive to their needs. Booth demonstrations will focus on delivering a sense and response healthcare system.
