Agfa HealthCare has started bundling Nuance's urgent test results notifier Veriphy in with its IMPAX system in Canada.
Veriphy delivers critical test results immediately to physicians by email, text message or mobile phone, and allows for easy tracking and auditing of alerts. Nuance says it is in use by over 235 customers in the United States, including Yale-New Haven Hospital and Virginia Commonwealth University.
Belgium-based Agfa hopes Veriphy will help doctors in busy hospitals using its IT service respond quickly to urgent or life-threatening patient information.
"We understand the pressures and challenges that healthcare providers are facing today -- from increased volumes of work, extended patient wait-times, to ensuring the highest quality of care is delivered in the fastest and most efficient manner," Dave Wilson, vice president, Agfa HealthCare in Canada, told DOTmed News. "By partnering with Nuance, we are giving Canadian physicians an innovative product that will help improve efficiencies within the hospital environment, as well as speed communication processes across the healthcare facility."
