In the field of Imaging, Agfa HealthCare successfully completed the first installation of its DX-D 500 Direct Radiography system (DR) at the Dortmund Knappschaftskrankenhaus (Germany). The DX-D 500 is a complete DR solution, suited for a very comprehensive range of X-ray examinations. A series of new contracts in - amongst other countries - France, Germany and Spain have been signed in the third quarter.
In Imaging Informatics, the U.S. Air Force selected Agfa HealthCare's IMPAX Data Center to manage and share clinical information and images across all of the USAF's medical facilities in the United States. Over the years, Agfa HealthCare has built a strong presence in the U.S. military and Veterans Affairs hospitals and medical treatment facilities. In Canada, the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Québec (CHUQ) has successfully implemented Agfa HealthCare's IMPAX 6 Picture Archiving and Communication System. As an integral part of the Quebec Government's eHealth initiative, IMPAX 6 has helped CHUQ move to digital radiology.
As part of the United Arab Emirates Ministery of Health's national health information system program, Agfa HealthCare will install its IMPAX 6 solution as well as a number of Computed Radiography solutions at 34 healthcare facilities. In Enterprise IT, the interfaces between Agfa HealthCare's leading Hospital and Clinical Information System ORBIS and SAP Controlling, SAP Material Management and SAP Financial have been officially certified by SAP. The interfaces are used to bidirectionally transfer data from ORBIS to SAP. In recent months, Agfa HealthCare was able to strengthen its presence in the Enterprise IT markets in Germany (e.g. SLK Kliniken Heilbronn GmbH), France (e.g. Centre Hospitalier Du Mans and Centre Hospitalier Intercommunal Créteil) and Luxembourg (e.g. Centre Hospitalier de Luxembourg and Centre Hospitalier Emile Mayrisch).
