Agfa HealthCare has been awarded a contract in France.
CH Jean Rougier hospital in Cahors, France, is implementing Agfa's HYDMedia electronic archiving and healthcare document system. The system will allow the hospital to digitize all documentation, regardless of source, type, or format, creating a centralized electronic archiving environment.
The system will allow users to retrieve the hospital's archived documents with one click, immediately and from any workstation, Agfa said.
HYDMedia will also allow the CH Jean Rougier hospital to optimize its risk management workflow by indexing and storing information in the hospital's digital archive. Paper and digital documents will be available immediately electronically, and can be shared throughout the hospital community.
CH Jean Rougier sees the implementation of HYDMedia as the first step toward becoming a paperless hospital.
