Electronic Health Solutions (EHS), founded in early 2009 is a non-profit, innovative, technology-driven company that provides automated solutions to enhance the quality and efficiency of public health care services offered in Jordan. EHS will implement several projects that are expected to have quick and lasting impacts on the health sector.
As Part of this project; many MOH hospitals went fully digital, by replacing the conventional wet processing system with AGFA HealthCare CR systems, which eventually increased the productivity and efficiency of the clinicians and technician within the hospital workflow. The users were impressed from the image quality, the friendly user interface, and satisfied with the outcome.
Agfa HealthCare’s CR 15-X and CR 30-Xm are both versatile and flexible, they offer high image quality and total cost-effective solution. On the other hand, the leading hard copy imagers DS 5302 and DRYSTAR AXYS with their reliability, quality and flexibility make it the right imager to use – anywhere you need it and make it a perfect match to many modalities.
