AGFA HealthCare Positioned in the Leaders Category in the IDC MarketScape: U.S. Enterprise Medical Imaging 2022-2023 Vendor Assessment

GREENVILLE, S.C. – January 18, 2023 – (

AGFA HealthCare is proud to announce that it has been named to the Leaders Category in the IDC MarketScape: U.S. Enterprise Medical Imaging 2022-2023 Vendor Assessment (doc #US48168021e, November 2022). According to the IDC MarketScape report, vendors should:

“Consider AGFA when you are a medium-sized to large healthcare provider looking for a platform-based solution with a differentiated level of intelligence that promotes a more collaborative medical imaging work environment.”

AGFA HealthCare has been recognized by the IDC MarketScape for the following strengths:

Converged Platform
Enterprise Imaging Platform builds on AGFA’s long-standing domain experience in medical imaging IT. The solution combines connected (cross) enterprise care, converged multispecialty support, an adaptable automated workflow, and disease-oriented augmented intelligence across the platform. The resulting capabilities (e.g., real-time collaboration and communication, multidisciplinary imaging for 15+ service lines, anytime-anywhere access, AI-enabled rules-based workflow automation, modular deployment) differentiate AGFA’s solution. One customer said, “I took a trip a few times to RSNA and HIMSS, and AGFA was the only vendor at the time that seemed to understand the concept of enterprise imaging.” This perception of AGFA having a robust, vendor-neutral platform with capabilities that can scale with modern-day requirements stood out in interviews.

Augmented Intelligence
AGFA’s RUBEE for AI embeds “augmented intelligence” capabilities (advanced visualization, workflow orchestration, automated triage, smart hanging protocols, automated reporting, critical finding notifications, and specialty imaging packages) into the solution. Combining AI-driven automation with disease-oriented AI analytics helps customers generate more insight and practice better evidence-based medicine than traditional imaging workflows.

Ecosystem Integration
AGFA’s XERO modules help enable enterprisewide collaboration between local healthcare professionals and external stakeholders. The XERO Exchange Network (XEN) allows image and report sharing at any time, which promotes regional and local collaboration between stakeholders (e.g., clinicians, patients, and other providers).

Furthermore, the solution is FHIR-enabled and has an open API ecosystem, which simplifies the ability for the vendor and its customers to integrate and improves interoperability. AGFA also holds many alliances and partnerships, which extend its ecosystem orientation even further, including with Microsoft Azure, AWS, Oracle, and Google, in addition to hardware OEMs (Dell, HPE, and Barco) and others (Philips Forcare, Qaelum, TOMTEC, Ascend, Cordiana, and MediReport).

About AGFA HealthCare

AGFA HealthCare is transforming the role of medical imaging into a high-impact, data-driven enterprise-wide information flow – supporting health professionals across the globe with secure and scalable imaging data management.  

AGFA’s preeminent product, the Enterprise Imaging Platform, creates an Imaging Health Record™, or IHR, to align with and fulfill a health system’s EHR.  The IHR provides an unobstructed flow of patient imaging information to help clinicians achieve their clinical, operational, and business strategies.

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers Joins ArrowStream’s Growing Supply Chain Network

Growing Fast-casual Chain Partners with Leading Foodservice Cloud Platform to Accelerate Growth & Expansion

CHICAGO – January 18, 2023 – (

ArrowStream, Inc. (“ArrowStream”), the leading foodservice cloud platform for supply chain intelligence, is proud to announce its new partnership with Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers® (“Freddy’s”) and welcome them to its network of over 275 chain operators across 100,000 restaurant locations, 1,300 distribution locations and 10,000 manufacturers. 

Founded in 2002 in Wichita, KS, Freddy’s is a fast-casual chain specializing in fresh, cooked-to-order, craveable menu items. At 457 locations across 36 states, Freddy’s focuses on quality, hospitality, cleanliness, and timeless traditions to create a fun and inclusive environment for their guests. As Freddy’s focuses on future growth and expansion into new markets, they chose ArrowStream to provide full visibility into product spend and inventory levels throughout their supply chain. 

“We didn’t realize the value we were missing until we sat down with ArrowStream and did a supply chain visibility assessment,” said Liz Kent, Purchasing Manager at Freddy’s. “We have a relatively straightforward supply chain with a single distribution partner, but with ArrowStream we found several opportunities such as efficiency improvements, automated inventory alerts, and better cost controls. Having the ArrowStream platform in place will enable us to focus more time on strategic growth initiatives and the success of our franchisees.”   

Like many growing brands without the right system in place, effective and efficient contract management and price auditing was a challenge for Freddy’s. ArrowStream Central allows Freddy’s to quickly identify overcharges and reduce pricing errors by streamlining their update and communication process. This process includes manufacturers submitting pricing updates within ArrowStream Central which are then approved by Freddy’s. 

“We are thrilled to welcome Freddy’s to ArrowStream,” said Marc Larson, VP of Sales at ArrowStream. “Freddy’s has built an incredible brand, and we’re excited to support their growth. Freddy’s frequent LTOs can place greater strain on the supply chain, so we’re excited to help them proactively manage this complexity to ensure an optimal experience for their franchisees and customers.” 

Freddy’s is the latest foodservice operator to partner with ArrowStream, joining a growing list of customers, including Pollo Campero, Aroma Joe’s, and Firehouse Subs, among others. ArrowStream’s solutions are developed specifically for the foodservice industry and provide operators, distributors, and manufacturers an intelligent network that drives efficiency and cost savings in an end-to-end solution for their partners.
