Agfa HealthCare has signed a global collaboration agreement with VisionWare. Under the agreement, Agfa HealthCare can include VisionWare's enterprise master patient index (EMPI) and enterprise master provider registry (EMPR) capabilities within its integrated care portfolio offers.
One challenge to integrated care is that hospitals across a region rarely use the same patient ID, making it more difficult to merge a patient's information. Integrated care solutions also need to handle unique provider IDs. With healthcare enterprises facing ever-increasing data volumes and complex legacy data silos, the company is committed to providing hospitals with access to a single view of the patient, across departments, sites, and regions.
Embedding VisionWare MDM into our portfolios will allow us to provide healthcare enterprises with solutions that enhance patient satisfaction, improve access to and reliability of information, make outreach more efficient, and simplify adherence to regulatory compliance measures and meaningful use. We believe that robust data management strategy is fundamental in facilitating the rationalization of the volume and variety of data across enterprises and at a very personal level enables the exchange of information that makes a difference to everyday lives.
Manager-Integrated Care Solutions,
Healthcare enterprises need a single, accurate, and trusted view of patient data. Our global agreement with Agfa HealthCare will provide customers with the solutions offering their stakeholders access to accurate, complete, and available data across care settings, geographies, and multiple vendor systems. We are proud to have been able to meet the various challenges put in front of us, and delighted that the company trusts us to perform a key role in its end-to-end solution that allows customers to leverage the business outcomes associated with data-driven healthcare.
