AGFA HealthCare, a leading provider of Enterprise Imaging solutions, is proud to announce that it has joined the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN) to scale up the global availability of AGFA Enterprise Imaging (AGFA EI) VNA and XERO® Universal Viewer on the cloud. The APN is a global community of AWS Partners that leverage programs, expertise, and resources to build, market, and sell customer offerings.
At HIMSS23, visitors can discover how AGFA HealthCare is working with AWS to allow healthcare networks across the globe to outsource data protection and security responsibilities and keep the VNA’s scalability elastic.
- The scalability of the cloud VNA can help AGFA HealthCare’s customers improve the predictability of costs and control, especially not having to deal with infrastructure and storage and end of life issues, while supporting evolving needs in terms of changing image volumes or the health system’s growth through acquisitions and mergers.
- Simplified in-house IT administration reduces IT burdens.
“Joining the AWS Partner Network allows us to leverage a wealth of programs, expertise and resources to build technical solutions that keep us in the forefront of meeting the ongoing IT needs of our customers globally. The explosion in medical imaging data requires new solutions for handling, storing and protecting data, while making it seamlessly available to the people who need it,” says Nathalie McCaughley, President, AGFA HealthCare.
“By supporting our EI VNA and XERO Universal Viewer on the cloud with AWS, we can help health systems to face their imaging challenges, including the difficulties of managing data protection and security, ensuring that infrastructure remains scalable, attracting and retaining skilled IT talents, and predicting costs,” added Mark Burgess, President North America, AGFA HealthCare.
Secure data availability with predictable costs
By simplifying image data management and consolidating even the most isolated data, while reducing storage, archiving and back-up costs, the AGFA EI VNA offers health systems and hospitals true business transformation opportunities. The AGFA HealthCare XERO Universal Viewer, which delivers an HTML5-based zero footprint user interface and seamless Single Sign On (SSO) integration capabilities, enables the imaging data to be accessed and shared across the enterprise, even if the on-premises PACS goes down.
Hosting the AGFA EI VNA and XERO Universal Viewer on AWS helps to close the infrastructure gap in the health system’s image management, further enhancing data availability and delivering world-class security, while making costs more predictable and simplifying in-house IT administration. Furthermore, as the image volume increases or the health system expands, the VNA delivers the needed elasticity and scalability.
As an APN member, AGFA HealthCare joins a global network of 100,000 AWS Partners from more than 150 countries working with AWS to provide innovative solutions, solve technical challenges, support customer successes, and deliver value for mutual customers.
