U.S. Customers Purchase Carestream Health’s Newest Cloud-Based Radiology Services

Service Model Delivers Fully Featured, Enterprise-Wide Functionality While Reducing Costs

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 2 — U.S. customers are purchasing Carestream Health’s cloud-based RIS/PACS and vendor-neutral archiving services to streamline operational efficiencies and reduce costs. CARESTREAM Vue eHealth services deliver fully featured, efficient image review, management and distribution from any location throughout the enterprise. The company also provides vendor-neutral archiving of patient data and imaging studies.

Winthrop-University Hospital, Mineola, N.Y., recently signed a seven-year, multi-million-dollar order for cloud-based RIS/PACS and archiving services. Winthrop-University Hospital is a 591-bed university-affiliated medical center and state-designated Regional Trauma Center. The hospital selected Carestream Health as its services provider because of its proven track record of worldwide implementations.

“Purchasing cloud-based radiology services delivers continuous technology improvements and built-in disaster recovery,” said Maureen Gaffney, Winthrop’s Chief Medical Information Officer. “This service model supports continued expansion of our imaging services and changes in radiology workflows for an affordable, fee-for-service price. We could not achieve all these advantages with in-house systems.”

Vue eHealth PACS Services delivers full PACS functionality for image review, storage and distribution throughout the enterprise including delivering advanced reading tools to remote radiologists. Vue eHealth Archive Services offers virtualized, vendor-neutral long-term storage as well as data protection, and disaster recovery of clinical data such as DICOM images and XDS documents. The Vue eHealth Portal enables healthcare providers that use the company’s archive service to allow access to that data by authorized clinicians anywhere in the world through a simple Internet connection.

These cloud-based services provide technology obsolescence protection and can reduce costs by up to 30 percent. Healthcare facilities pay a per-study usage charge instead of investing in building, maintaining and upgrading a large internal infrastructure.

Carestream Health is one of the world’s premier providers of large cloud-based healthcare IT infrastructures. The company currently manages over 30 million imaging studies. Carestream Health’s eHealth services are supported by data centers operated in the U.S., Europe, Latin America and Japan.

At the SIIM tradeshow Carestream Health launched Vue, a new brand for the company’s comprehensive healthcare IT platform that includes radiology, cardiology, enterprise workflow, vendor neutral archiving and cloud-based services. Vue merges Carestream Health’s lineage of imaging innovation with leading-edge IT technology. With thousands of proven implementations worldwide, Vue healthcare IT solutions deliver streamlined workflow, clinical excellence and superior patient care.
