St. Alexius Hospital Orders CARESTREAM PACS

Advanced Reading Tools and Rapid, Remote Access Expected to Streamline Workflow, Boost Radiologist Productivity

ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 5 — St. Alexius Hospital, St. Louis, Mo., ordered a CARESTREAM PACS for its 200-bed hospital that provides a full range of healthcare specialties and services. The latest CARESTREAM PACS streamlines workflow by enhancing communication with other information systems and delivering time-saving features for radiologists such as embedded 3D tools and advanced 3D capabilities; an automatic registration feature that speeds interpretations of volumetric studies and a global patient worklist.

“We selected CARESTREAM PACS because it combines exceptional flexibility with advanced features including automatic registration of current and prior volumetric exams, as well as rapid, easy remote access for our radiologists,” said Bob Ellis, Director of Radiology, St. Alexius Hospital. “We expect the efficiency of this PACS platform to boost radiologist productivity and improve reporting for referring physicians.”

Carestream Health’s PACS architecture enhances data sharing by providing efficient consolidation of data into a single global workflow, regardless of the information’s source or location. And since the data is consolidated—not replicated—storage and bandwidth requirements are significantly reduced.
