AGFA HealthCare welcomes REDSALUD Chile to its Enterprise Imaging Network!

In our unwavering commitment to providing cutting-edge clinical technology in Latin America, we are delighted to announce the partnership with RedSalud for our flagship platform, Enterprise Imaging (EI).

With a primary goal of expanding access to quality healthcare throughout the region, RedSalud aligns seamlessly with our mission to provide innovative and transformative solutions.

By harnessing the capabilities of EI, RedSalud will enhance its dedication to patient care by establishing a comprehensive nationwide care network. The integration of state-of-the art tools, including task management, workflow orchestration and cloud platforms, marks a pivotal step in revolutionizing healthcare in Chile.

“AGFA HealthCare has some of the most modern systems in the world. We hope that this new system will contribute to achieving a better flow throughout the entire imaging process (x-rays, MRIs, scanners, among other procedures), and improve the experience of both the doctor and patients. This system also opens up great potential for the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help medical diagnosis.”

Commending the excellent teamwork achieved thus far, Espinoza also expresses confidence in the project’s success, emphasizing the pivotal role of the project team. He elaborates:

“The success of this transition and deployment is paramount to maintaining of RedSalud’s clinical and operational processes. AGFA HealthCare looks forward to the exciting opportunities of collaboration and gives a big thanks to RedSalud for choosing the award-winning Enterprise Imaging Platform. A warm welcome to our network!”
