Healthcare Providers Deploy Vue Motion Zero-Footprint Image Viewer to Enhance Physician Access

Carestream’s Viewer Can Be Used in Citrix Environment to Speed Delivery Of Images, Reports with Existing IT Infrastructure

MINNEAPOLIS, July 23 — Carestream announced at AHRA 2013 that its zero-footprint Vue Motion image viewer is being deployed by dozens of healthcare providers across the nation. Many facilities have added the versatile image viewer to their EMR/Citrix environments to speed delivery of images and reports to clinicians and referring physicians.

“Many EMRs use Citrix to manage a variety of enterprise-wide applications. Unfortunately image viewing in Citrix poses performance challenges that are frustrating for clinicians, referring physicians and other users,” said Cristine Kao, Carestream′s Global Marketing Director, Healthcare IT Solutions. “Since Vue Motion is a zero-footprint viewer, it offers rapid access to images and reports even when it is used in a Citrix environment. This simplifies deployment, improves physician satisfaction and allows healthcare facilities to use their existing IT infrastructure.”

San Joaquin General Hospital (Stockton, Calif.) recently implemented Carestream’s Vue Motion image viewer on a server that supports a variety of access methods to view PACS images as an HTML5 browser page.   

“This configuration means clinicians can access the server through any HTML5-compliant browser, so it supports our Citrix clients as well as clinicians with web-enabled devices such as an iPad. Physicians are especially enthusiastic about remote access, because it allows them to review patient data whether they are in the ER, a hospital room or their offices or homes,” said Don Johnston, San Joaquin’s CIO. “A two factor authentication process ensures the security of patient records.”

He reports that Vue Motion has a “truly intuitive user interface” that allows physicians to quickly become proficient with minimal training or support.

“The main image is displayed in the center of the screen, and physicians have the ability to select a patient’s prior imaging studies from a pullout on the left or view the radiology report from a pullout on the right. This maximizes the imaging display for physicians while providing exceptional functionality,” he said.  

Carestream’s zero-footprint, Web-based Vue Motion viewer can be integrated with a third-party PACS or DICOM archive, embedded within an EMR or EHR portal, or used through URL activation. The image viewer is built on platform-independent technologies and delivers access utilizing HTML5.

Vue Motion does not require software downloads and uses a single intuitive user interface, so no application training is required. It supports sticky notes communication, order information entry, and side-by-side image display.
