Crystal Run Healthcare Orders Carestream Health’s Latest Digital Medical Imaging and Healthcare IT Systems

Multi-Million Dollar Project Can Reduce Turnaround Time and Help Improve Treatment

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Jan. 13 — Crystal Run Healthcare has selected Carestream Health, Inc., to implement new digital systems for scheduling and capturing patient x-rays exams, as well as a central archive for managing medical images and related information.

Headquartered in Middletown, N.Y., Crystal Run Healthcare is one of the largest outpatient care providers in New York state. A multi-specialty medical practice designed by physicians and featuring state-of-the-art technology and facilities, Crystal Run Healthcare is expanding its range of exceptional medical services to benefit more community residents in the region.

Crystal Run Healthcare chose Carestream Health over several competing suppliers because the company’s broad portfolio of digital solutions features exceptional image quality, reliability and information management capabilities.

“We are very pleased to be working with Carestream Health to implement new enterprise-wide RIS/PACS and digital imaging systems. Not only does Carestream Health offer Crystal Run Healthcare the cutting edge technology our patients and physicians deserve, but our exceptional relationship with the Carestream Health team promises added benefits for all,” said Dr. Hal Teitelbaum, Managing Partner, Crystal Run Healthcare. “We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship between our two organizations."

Beginning in January, Carestream Health will install CARESTREAM PACS and CARESTREAM RIS for enterprise-wide radiology scheduling and management of images and data, along with two KODAK DIRECTVIEW DR 7500 Systems and a KODAK DIRECTVIEW CR 975 System for efficient digital capture of patient x-ray images.

Carestream Health’s integrated RIS/PACS can support environments ranging from a single provider to complex regional and national healthcare networks that include dozens of healthcare facilities. After an image is captured with Carestream Health’s scalable DR or CR systems, it can be viewed in minutes on the PACS by on-site clinicians. The RIS provides advanced scheduling and workflow information, as well as the status of radiology exams and reports.

Carestream Health also has designated Crystal Run Healthcare a “Center of Excellence” site, bringing its total to more than 25 such locations around the world. “Center of Excellence” facilities are so designated because of their commitment to leading-edge technology and patient care. In addition to hosting visits for other healthcare professionals who want to see systems from Carestream Health in action, these facilities collaborate with the company’s research and design experts to develop new digital imaging and healthcare IT solutions to meet the needs of healthcare facilities around the world.

Crystal Run Healthcare plans to implement additional digital medical imaging systems from Carestream Health in the coming years, as part of its commitment to providing patients with a higher standard of care focused on their medical needs and comfort.
