Together, Agfa ICIS and EMC infrastructure products create workflow efficiencies and provide images in context with patient information, helping health care providers to make more informed care decisions. The EMC Select program will offer Agfa HealthCare's ICIS platform which allows the workflow, capture, storage, exchange, and access of medical imaging information in EMR, EHR and HIE environments. The platform will also provide an enterprise next generation VNA, XERO web-based image viewer and migration services.
