The first of a kind for industry, and a trail-blazing initiative for Agfa HealthCare.
On January 10, 2023, Agfa HealthCare welcomed clinical and IT stakeholders from across the UK to its first Industry Collaboration Day, which took place in central London.
Clinical leads, ICS and network innovators, AI specialists, procurement frameworks, interoperability leaders and clinical governance met with Agfa HealthCare’s global and senior teams to discuss developments and visions for clinical and technical transformation projects.
Segmented into two sessions, ‘Clinical Re-design’ and ‘Digital Transformations’, the event was hosted by Agfa HealthCare’s senior team, and led by pre-selected panellists from industry. The company was privileged to welcome Dr Rizwan Malik, Dr Amrita Kumar, Dr Peter Strouhal, Dr Sri Redla, Kris Weavill, James Rawlinson and Stephen Townrow, as well as the British Institute of Radiology, to an event where Agfa led neutral discussions on clinical re-design – and ICS project best practice – with a diverse group of voices from all over the UK.
A hot topic for the region, the formation and support of Integrated Care Systems, was a focal point of discussion, and NHS radiologists and interoperability experts were on hand to provide insights on previous successes and future predictions. Agfa HealthCare’s CCIO for Northern Europe Dr Nick Spencer also led a session where he created a dynamic exchange on best-practice clinical outcomes, which was soon followed by Karen Middlehurst’s overview on regional imaging networks (RINS) and integrated care provision.
Supported by the global teams, including president Nathalie McCaughley, Agfa HealthCare was excited to exchange neutral and unbiased viewpoints on the imaging IT market status quo.
Agfa say it looks forward to continuing its engagement with these key personas and fulfilling the requirements and visions of delegates’ own learnings, perspectives and future ideas for imaging IT.
