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.
