February 28, 2008 — Carestream Health Inc. highlighted at HIMSS 2008 enhancements to its KODAK CARESTREAM Digital Dashboard that include proactive notification for system events via email or text messaging, new features designed for enterprise-wide data management.
The digital dashboard, which supports KODAK CARESTREAM RIS/PACS and KODAK CARESTREAM Information Management Solutions, is designed to offer system administrators a method to proactively monitor equipment performance, storage utilization and user volumes. The digital dashboard also enables administrators to verify network communication of other vendors’ devices, providing a consolidated view of system performance data.
Digital dashboard enhancements include the capability to elect to receive user-configurable e-mail or text message alerts for issues ranging from disk space and table space thresholds to disruptions in network connectivity and failed processes. Notifications can be sent to other users when the primary administrator is out of the office or is not on call. Administrators can also opt to receive on-screen notifications so they will be alerted to a system event when working in another application on their desktop. Integration of the IBM Lotus Sametime module with the dashboard allows administrators to communicate with radiologists, physicians and other system users. RIS reports are available in addition to PACS reports. Dashboard updates can be delivered directly to the administrator’s desktop via an icon that changes color when new content has been posted.
These enhancements will be available with the digital dashboard in the second quarter of 2008.
