Connecting

Disparate

Sites

Connect and integrate facilities across multiple locations to provide a unified source of accurate imaging data, accessible virtually anywhere.

During the first 15 months of its Clinical Collaboration Platform rollout, Servicio Andaluz de Salud saved €2 million. Ongoing annual cost savings are projected at 65 percent, and full return on the €6.5 million investment is expected in just over a year.

THE CHALLENGE

Servicio Andaluz de Salud's nine different health systems lacked connectivity, preventing the enterprise from providing comprehensive care for the region. 500 TB of data was siloed in systems from different vendors, including Agfa, Siemens, Fuji, GE, Indra, IRE, Rogan and Telvent.


THE SOLUTION

Learn how the Clinical Collaboration Platform creates a unified environment for clinical imaging and data across the Andalusian Health Service — integrating nine disparate health systems, 1,600 primary care clinics, 90 regional hospitals and over 160 other sites using legacy systems from a wide range of vendors. Topics include:

  • Project goals and objectives
  • The Unified Core and five solutions modules
  • The implementation process
  • Cost savings and other results achieved by Servicio Andaluz de Salud

"Now you have all the images and reports you need to care for a patient wherever you are — all in one place, just one click away."

 — Juan Lucas Retamar Gentil, CIO, SAS

Connecting Disparate Sites requires these solutions:

Large, multi-site healthcare organizations and regional networks face the challenge of managing clinical data across technically and geographically diverse IT systems. As these enterprises have grown through mergers, aquisitions and consolidation, IT managers struggle to synchronize patient identifications, optimize workloads and integrate clinical data across different sites, technologies and archives.

The Clinical Collaboration Platform is designed to remove barriers to effective teamwork between providers, patients, payers and administrators — no matter where they are located or what systems they use.
