Independent medical solutions provider Xograph Healthcare joined Canon UK with the launch of their Healthcare IT Solutions division at EHI Live 2013 held at the NEC, Birmingham.
The suite of Canon HIT solutions has been designed specifically to improve efficiencies in hospitals by enabling the sharing of patient health records, reducing time and costs and ultimately improving care for patients. The suite includes Cross Enterprise Document Sharing solutions (XDS) to improve clerical and clinical workflows, enabling patient records to move through and between organisations as quickly as possible, as well as medical software solutions for storing digital images and medical records, such as Radiology Information System (RIS) and Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS).
Yoshiyuki Masuko, Senior Director at Canon Europe & UK, said: “We are extremely proud to launch Canon Healthcare IT Solutions to the UK market and excited to promote the great breadth of Canon’s portfolio to the healthcare sector. At Canon we believe that innovative imaging technology can be maximised to empower clinicians to make decisions with greater speed and accuracy and, most importantly, improve care for patients.”
Peter Staff, CEO at Xograph Healthcare said: “Xograph are pleased to work with Canon in this new venture where their primary goal of providing innovative solutions for better and smarter healthcare is in line with our own.”
