ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 27 — Carestream Health, Inc., launched a new web-based cardiology PACS that offers a single integrated platform for diagnosis, image review and reporting for echocardiography, cardiac catheterization and nuclear cardiology procedures as well as electrocardiogram management. The CARESTREAM Cardiology PACS will be available by the end of September.
The company’s cardiology PACS equips providers to consolidate isolated cardiac lab systems into a centralized solution to achieve both greater efficiency and lower costs. The Cardiology PACS client also enables productive reading of cardiology data from any on-site or off-site networked PC. Clinicians benefit from convenient and productive review of multiple cardiac studies and results—along with easy access to prior exams.
Carestream Health’s new cardiology PACS integrates seamlessly with the company’s radiology PACS, allowing healthcare providers to use the same workstation for diagnostic reading and clinical review of cardiology and radiology studies.
“Most cardiology services providers are hampered by the need for physicians to log onto multiple systems to review patient images and data. And accessing prior exams from DVD or tape libraries is time-consuming and inefficient. These factors can lead to delayed diagnosis and treatment,” said Diana L. Nole, President, Digital Medical Solutions, Carestream Health. ”Our new cardiology PACS provides rapid access to images, data and reports for clinicians at any location, thus helping improve the workflow and enhancing the decision-making process.”
The new cardiology PACS offers:
Consolidated Information Management Can Lower Costs
If Carestream Health’s cardiology PACS is integrated with the company’s radiology PACS , clinicians on any PC or workstation gain access to native 3D functionality for cardiac analysis, coronary analysis, calcium scoring and other specialized cardiac applications.
Carestream Health also offers a flexible information management platform that can manage DICOM and non-DICOM information captured by cardiology, radiology and a variety of other patient imaging and information systems. With this platform, hospitals and cardiology practices can consolidate data management throughout the enterprise to reduce the high costs associated with separate archiving systems. This management platform also simplifies business continuity and disaster recovery planning.
