MORTSEL, Belgium, May 14, 2024 ( - AGFA HealthCare is pleased to announce that St. Vincent’s Private Hospital in Dublin, Ireland, has chosen to implement AGFA HealthCare’s Enterprise Imaging. This five-year agreement includes Enterprise Imaging for both Radiology and Breast Imaging, structured and precision reporting modules, Best in KLAS XERO® Universal Viewer, AGFA’s Scheduling solution, Business Intelligence, Patients and Clinician portal, and a Managed Services contract.

Near-real-time image access

St. Vincent’s Private Hospital is the largest acute private hospital in Dublin and part of the only integrated multi-hospital campus in Ireland. The Enterprise Imaging Platform will deliver the advanced capabilities and robust availability that the hospital needs.

“St. Vincent’s Private Hospital is a unique healthcare environment. As we are on the same grounds as St. Vincent’s University Hospital, we can share resources, expertise and medical facilities with this leading academic teaching establishment. This enables us to deal with a high volume of patients, often who have complex medical requirements. Imaging is core to this care. AGFA HealthCare’s Enterprise Imaging will give us the reliable, robust platform that we need, whilst delivering very fast access to studies. Furthermore, AGFA HealthCare is able to support this system with managed services and monitoring that will maximise our uptime, while minimising the burden on our own resources,” says Tim Aseervatham, Healthcare/Diagnostic Informatics Manager for St. Vincent’s Private Hospital.

“We are proud of the trust that St. Vincent’s Private Hospital – a key healthcare player in Ireland – is placing in AGFA HealthCare. This further demonstrates the success of our long-standing commitment to delivering solutions that improve the delivery of healthcare to patients in both the private and public healthcare sector in Ireland and beyond. Enterprise Imaging enables the creation of a secure, modular and scalable ecosystem, which helps the hospital to reduce complexity, improve clinical collaboration, and enhance workflow efficiency. By empowering all users to access imaging studies in near-real-time, it will allow them to focus on tasks that add value to both their patients’ care and experience,” says Colin Foley, Regional Business Manager for AGFA HealthCare Ireland.

Seamless care and collaboration

The Radiology Department at St. Vincent’s Private Hospital is one of the largest radiology services in the country, offering a full range of diagnostic and interventional services. It performs over 65,000 studies every year, including X-ray, CT, mammography, MRI, ultrasound, fluoroscopy and DEXA. The department is made up of 18 consultant radiologists working in conjunction with highly qualified radiographers and nurses and supported by experienced administrators.

Enterprise Imaging will integrate with the hospital’s existing pillar and patient referral systems and will replace all paper-based workflows. The five-year agreement includes:
