Securely sharing your medical images outside the hospital

Satisfied patients and external physicians mean greater loyalty and more referrals for your facility. With the XERO® Portal, you can enhance your patients’ involvement in their own care and increase the value of consultations for patient and referring physician alike, by making it easy for them to access and share medical images.


With just a few clicks, images and reports are securely available anywhere, anytime, from any web-enabled device.

  • Easy access for patients
  • Convenience for referring physicians
  • Central control for IT administrators

Communication and continuity are enhanced, patient care is more efficient, and your staff don’t lose valuable time burning CDs. Your hospital becomes the preferred healthcare partner for imaging quality, convenience and delivery of patient care.

XERO® Portal

Web-based platform providing access to patient care information beyond the institutional walls.

Enables referring physicians to view results more quickly or getting treatment started sooner.

Can be accessed easily anywhere, anytime, from desktop or mobile device.

Screen layout can be customized to match your organization’s visual identity. Your logo, corporate colours and chosen background images provide a consistent ‘look and feel’.

Allows patients to view images and reports, for greater patient involvement in their own care.

Allows patients and physicians to share images and reports with others, for second opinions, enhanced care continuity and reduced retakes.

Single-sign-on integration with an existing patient portal possible.

Protects patient privacy with secure authentication and audit trail.


Patient arrives to the hospital. HIS creates admission. HIS creates admission and orders (HIS sends HL7 ADT message to portal)

Patient receives medical imaging and a report is created

Referring physician gets an email with credentials to access the images and reports via the portal

Patient goes home and gets an email with credentials to access his/her images and reports via the portal

Easy access for all patients

Automated account creation

The first time your patients come to the hospital for imaging, an account is automatically created for them. The patient receives a notification by email with a link to the Portal. Alternatively you can print their log-in details while they are still at the hospital, to make the process even easier.

Highly secure

All modern authentication options are supported, including enabling a one-time password for login, automatic disabling of accounts in case of brute force attacks etc.

“Anywhere, anytime” image access and sharing

With XERO Portal, patients can also easily share their images with other physicians or relatives. It suffices to enter an email address and indicate how long the study can be shared. This triggers an email with a unique link, which together with a separately sent PIN code, can be used to temporarily log onto the Portal and access the permitted images. Finally, the patient can also check who has accessed their images at what time.

“Doesn’t matter whether they are using a laptop, tablet or smartphone; your patients can access and download their images from any device at any time.”


Fast sign-up

It’s just as easy for referring physicians as for patients to sign up for the XERO Portal. As soon as the images or study they ordered is available, XERO Portal notifies them by email.

View studies, download and share

By default, referring physicians can view only those studies they ordered. They can download the images & reports to complete their own patient medical record, or share studies with other healthcare professionals, e.g. to ask a second opinion.

Central Control for its administrators

Thanks to the tight integration with Enterprise Imaging and your Hospital Information System (HIS), user management is reduced to a minimum. Patient merges from Enterprise Imaging are reflected in the Portal. Any updates in contact details known in EI or HIS are also automatically updated in the portal, unless the patient or physician manually changed his/her contact details.

No need to involve AGFA HealthCare for the most common configuration settings, as the XERO Portal allows your system administrators to manage:

  • Changing the email templates, e.g. for new user, recover password, study sharing…
  • Changing password policy to match the hospital’s security policies on validity, and complexity
  • Enabling 2-factor authentication
  • Updating the disclaimer statement
  • Manually creating users
    (in case you would not want automatic user creation)
