York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust Improves Workflow with Carestream PACS

HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, August 8 — York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has installed a CARESTREAM Vue PACS system, networked across their York and Scarborough sites. The solution includes Carestream Vue PACS, Carestream Vue Motion, Carestream Lesion Management, Carestream MyVue and Carestream Power Viewer, together providing enterprise-wide review, data management, distribution and archiving. The system gives clinicians and radiologists at the Trust the clinical tools and applications they need to enable convenient local and remote reporting, in a single workspace.

“We are delighted with our new Carestream PACS, which has provided us with enhanced functionality and improved our workflow,” says Dr Dan Petty, Consultant Radiologist with the Trust. “Carestream have been very capable partners, responding rapidly to our queries and requests.”

The new system is helping support the Trust to provide acute hospital and specialist healthcare services to the 800,000 population it serves around York, North Yorkshire, North East Yorkshire and Ryedale.
