20 years of AGFA HealthCare image management at Amiri Hospital!

Published On: January 26th, 2024|Categories: Enterprise Imaging, Enterprise Imaging Platform, Radiology|

AGFA HealthCare is delighted to announce the collaborated journey of 20 years as a partnership. 

Amiri Hospital had their first PACS deployed on 10 January 2004 and has continued the evolution throughout 2 decades with AGFA HealthCare as a valued vendor partner.

Twenty years has certainly seen some changes – for the hospital and the industry as a whole – and Amiri Hospital harnessed clinical and technical progress with the journey through AGFA HealthCare’s  PACS 4.5 with Quadrat RIS in 2004, then onto IMPAX and RIS in 2013, and finally Enterprise Imaging in 2020. Both teams worked as one in upgrade, integration, customization and training projects – enhancing the delivery of care and firmly positioning Amiri Hospital as a leading healthcare provider in Kuwait.

Zahraa Bahman, Specialist Radiologic Technologist at Amiri Hospital comments:

It’s been such a long journey with AGFA HealthCare – full of experience and memories.  Since 2004, Saud Alsaif and the team overcome many challenges to achieve where we find ourselves today. In these times, introducing technology to medical staff and the public was not an easy task. Today, we see full adoption and satisfaction.

 In my 14 years experience with the AGFA HealthCare solutions, I honestly say that AGFA HealthCare Enterprise Imaging is an amazing product with many outstanding features. We are lucky to have AGFA HealthCare solution. Thank you all for the long collaboration.”

Saud Al Saif, Senior PACS/RIS System Administrator, Head Specialist Radiologic Technologists, elaborates:

“Yesterday I realised that today marks 20 years from our first Go-Live in 2004. I took some time to reflect on what can only be described as a fast forwarded journey. We have moved from one stage to another with our people, even those who have since left the project due to retirement or career change, all leaving their own personal touch and legacy on the project by working together to overcome challenges.

 Reflecting on this huge achievement, I feel proud of what we have accomplished together. AGFA HealthCare mirrored my sentiments, and reminded me of our 20 years “anniversary” on that same morning – I was delighted to see that we could share this joyful moment together. We commenced the project, progressed together, and as always, will keep sailing this ship together. Congratulations to all of us on this glorious achievement.”

 Amiri Hospital is a district hospital located in Kuwait City, Kuwait. Built in 1949, it was the first government hospital in Kuwait, and now serves an estimated 400,000 patients per year.
