Carestream Health Shows Vendor-Neutral Archive That Simplifies IT Administrative Functions, Reduces Expenses

New Management Tools Enable Customized Administrative Alerts; Enhanced Security Rules Deliver Stronger Protection for Patient Data

ATLANTA, March 1 — Carestream Health, Inc., showcased its vendor-neutral CARESTREAM Clinical Data Archive that virtualizes enterprise storage and provides on demand delivery of images and data to locations throughout the enterprise, regardless of where the information is physically stored or where it originated. These capabilities can streamline IT tasks and help healthcare providers reduce expenses. The company’s latest archive was demonstrated at the annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference this week.

“Healthcare systems have an urgent need to create a consolidated, enterprise-wide repository for images as well as other forms of patient data currently stored on a variety of vendors’ systems in diverse locations. By fulfilling these requirements, our vendor-neutral archive enables healthcare providers to simplify IT management and administrative functions while simultaneously containing costs,” said Diana L. Nole, President, Digital Medical Solutions, Carestream Health. 

This enterprise-wide storage solution can be accessed through a Web client or integrated to existing EMR/HIS systems and provides a single point of access to the clinical patient portfolio. The data archive also delivers expanded layers of security to enhance the protection of patient data.

Dynamic Tag Morphing Critical to Vendor Neutrality
The data archive delivers a multi-tier repository for industry-standard data such as XDS, XDS-I and DICOM, as well as other non-DICOM data objects. It offers a true vendor-neutral environment through use of mechanisms such as dynamic tag morphing. Tag morphing facilitates interconnection of incompatible DICOM devices by allowing the archive to reference an internal library of PACS-specific tag addresses and attributes. With this capability, a DICOM header can easily be modified when transmitting DICOM image data acquired on one vendor’s PACS for widespread access by other users. This vendor-neutral archive allows healthcare facilities to maximize their investment in existing PACS systems, while simultaneously enabling efficient access to patient information across the enterprise.

For facilities that need to replace their PACS, the CARESTREAM Clinical Data Archive can help reduce the cost and complexity of data migration, while at the same time maintaining integrity and access to clinical data.
Archive Delivers Enhanced Management, Security Tools
The archive allows IT administrators to choose from a series of new monitoring and management tools designed to address a range of facility sizes and needs. A user-configurable notification capability allows IT managers to identify specific errors and conditions that will trigger an alert. These management tools equip a system administrator to provide excellent service levels at a lower cost—particularly in large and complex enterprises.

The CARESTREAM Clinical Data Archive contains multiple layers of security to ensure that patient information can be viewed only by authorized individuals or groups. Rules have been further enhanced to allow location-specific and application-specific restrictions. Sensitive data can also be encrypted for specific modalities, archived sites, as well as for the entire archive.
