Agfa HealthCare announces today that it has selected Dell, of Round Rock, Texas, to host its cloud clinical archive portfolio, including the Imaging Clinical Information System (ICIS) platform. By extending its existing managed services platform with the new availability of ICIS in the cloud, Agfa HealthCare is providing its U.S. customers simplified image archiving, management, and viewing that supports healthcare facilities' needs to image-enable the EMR. With this cost-effective, innovative cloud solution, Agfa HealthCare addresses the need for a comprehensive patient record. Because Agfa HealthCare provides comprehensive service and support, organizations can now focus their expertise more fully on diagnosis, treatment, and care delivery.

Storage, access, viewing and beyond

By delivering a cloud-based solution for the core components of ICIS - IMPAX Data Center and the XERO Technology Viewer - Agfa HealthCare is able to provide "anytime, anywhere" access to and fast viewing of securely stored patient medical images. The solution enables quick desktop streaming to deliver the comprehensive imaging services platform today's busy providers demand. Though previously available for installations in private clouds at customer data centers, the availability of ICIS as a totally managed service in the cloud expands the clinical information system options available to healthcare providers.

In addition to ICIS, Agfa HealthCare will also offer its U.S. customers the Dell Cloud Clinical Archive, providing offsite expansion for quick access to archived data in the event of a natural disaster or system downtime. Agfa HealthCare's U.S. customers will also be offered the Dell Cloud Clinical Recovery, designed to provide business continuity and disaster recovery for organizations with an existing onsite archive. Dell manages one of the world's largest cloud-based clinical archives, with more than 72 million clinical studies, 5 billion diagnostic imaging objects and supporting more than 800 clinical sites.
