CIOs and IT executives might appreciate the ability of Carestream Health's Vue PACS to combine an efficient workflow with advanced visualization and reporting tools and technologies. Images and reports are accessible from on-site or remote PC-based workstations, eliminating the need for costly dedicated workstations or teleradiology platforms. The architecture allows a healthcare system to save both time and money by creating a global patient work list and efficient radiology workflow among all its locations.
Cristine Kao, marketing manager for Carestream, says that the company offers a vendor-neutral archiving at the back end, a cardiology tool, and a workflow integration tool. Kao said that last year the company also launched an embedded, or native, voice-recognition solution. Vue PACS is available as a pay-per-use cloud service that includes an uptime guarantee, technology upgrades, data security, and duplicate data storage that addresses business continuity/disaster recovery.
