Platforms Enable IT Staff to Support Streamlined Radiology Workflow with Less Time, Effort

Zero-Footprint Viewer Enhances Convenience; SuperPACS Technology Exchanges Patient Imaging Data Between Disparate RIS, PACS Systems

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 20 — Carestream demonstrated the dramatic advantages its CARESTREAM Vue PACS and Vue Connect powered by SuperPACS™ technology offer healthcare IT staff and PACS administrators at the annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference this week.

Carestream’s Vue PACS provides on demand access to medical imaging data and reports with its vendor-neutral Vue Motion zero-footprint web viewer. Vue Motion is cleared by the FDA for use with mobile devices such as Apple iPads, which expedites image review by clinicians who are on the move.

Vue Motion eliminates the need to download or upgrade image viewing software at dozens of on-site and remote workstations. lts intuitive design also greatly reduces the need for user training. These attributes allow IT staff members to focus on other tasks while enhancing the convenience and productivity of on-site and off-site clinicians.

SuperPACS Offers Dramatic Advantages for Multi-Site Environments
The inability of different vendors’ RIS and PACS platforms to communicate has plagued healthcare IT professionals for years. In many cases, the only solution was to standardize all facilities on a single RIS and PACS platform, which was both costly and time-consuming. Carestream’s SuperPACS technology solves this challenge by accurately and efficiently exchanging information with disparate RIS and PACS systems at any location for a streamlined multi-site radiology workflow.

The SuperPACS architecture allows IT staffs to deliver key advantages to radiology and PACS managers including: a universal patient worklist with tracking of patient name, identification number and originating provider for each exam; automatic delivery of a patient’s prior imaging studies to the radiologist to expedite reading; and rapid delivery of the radiology report back to each healthcare provider’s RIS.  

Carestream’s Vue PACS and SuperPACS platforms are designed to meet the needs of hospitals and healthcare enterprises, regional health networks, single- or multi-site imaging centers, radiology groups and teleradiology services.

The company also offers a versatile portfolio of CARESTREAM Vue for Cloud Services that enables radiologists, clinicians and referring physicians to access patient data, imaging exams and radiology reports quickly and easily from any location. This pay-for-use services platform also facilitates image sharing within healthcare systems and among authorized, but often unaffiliated, providers.
