Carestream Health Showcases First-Ever SuperPACS™ Architecture To Integrate Existing Multi-Vendor, Multi-Site PACS

VIENNA, March 6 — At ECR Carestream Health will showcase a first-ever SuperPACS™ Architecture designed to integrate multi-vendor, multi-site PACS into an efficient enterprise solution.

This new architecture will equip healthcare providers to streamline workflow—using existing PACS resources—since it will enable the sharing of patient images and information, while also delivering a global worklist that balances exam reading among on-site and off-site radiologists. The Super PACS Architecture, currently a work in progress, will be available for order in the second quarter of 2009.

The new Super PACS Architecture communicates with legacy systems to drive greater productivity and efficiency through its ability to:

  • Create a common global worklist and apply intelligent rules to balance workload so that exams captured throughout the enterprise can be read by radiologists in any on-site or off-site location; 
  • Define the global worklist to include routing to specialists;
  • Support multiple patient identification numbers using IHE profiles;
  • Share patient information and images securely between all locations; and
  • Equip radiologists with a unified set of powerful diagnostic tools.

This architecture is designed to reduce expenses by maintaining use of existing PACS and storage devices and allowing for consolidation of resources. As part of its workflow grid, the new architecture can synchronize disparate PACS. Images and reports are automatically sent back to the original PACS or RIS for local storage and distribution.

“Healthcare providers around the world need the ability to manage disparate radiology solutions at multiple locations without replacing existing RIS/PACS systems,” explained Diana L. Nole, President, Digital Medical Solutions, Carestream Health. “This new infrastructure will also enable healthcare facilities to share patient information and enhance collaboration among clinicians. Ultimately this platform is intended to help improve the quality of patient care while simultaneously boosting productivity and resource utilization.”
