“We are delighted to once again rank #1 amongst VNA providers in Black Book’s annual survey. This result, which is based directly on the opinions of our customers and users, is a clear recognition of our ability to scale and deliver complex Enteprrise Imaging projects while being able to guide strategically and operationally our customers” comments Luc Thijs, President of Agfa HealthCare.
