Carestream Exceeds 26 Billion Images Managed in Vue Cloud Platform

March 9, 2018 — Carestream Health’s Vue Cloud, a healthcare imaging cloud service based on the Carestream Clinical Collaboration Platform, now manages more than 26 billion images in public and private cloud data centers around the world. The company recently showcased the cloud technology at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference, March 5-9 in Las Vegas.

Healthcare enterprises, radiology imaging centers and hospitals of all sizes continue to select Carestream’s Vue Cloud Services over competing cloud solutions due to its increased security, comprehensive functionality and affordable cost, according to the company. It equips desktop and mobile users with rapid, easy access to patients’ medical images and radiology reports.

Vue Cloud Services enable customers to access Carestream’s Clinical Collaboration Platform, driven by a unified backend that provides image and workflow management and vendor-neutral archiving as well as advanced multimedia and interactive reporting capabilities. The unified backend includes security, data protection and disaster recovery for multiple types of clinical data and standards such as DICOM, PDF, JPEG and XDS.

Vue Cloud Viewing Services allow direct access to reports and imaging studies by physicians. It also offers secure, zero-footprint access for distribution and reading by remote physicians with Carestream’s Vue Motion enterprise viewer. All services can be fully integrated with a facility’s electronic medical record (EMR).

Carestream General Manager for Healthcare Information Solutions Ludovic d’Aprea said the company is collaborating with firms like Intel to further expand its cloud capabilities, and that Carestream is adding new data centers in 2018 including one in China.  

Cloud services offer advantages for facilities of all sizes because they deliver high-performance applications with a predictable fee that eliminates the need for a large capital investment and continuous maintenance, management and technology upgrades.

Carestream’s service model offers high-quality archiving and image-sharing features along with data security delivered by Carestream’s Certified Tier 4 Security Data Center. This data center includes: redundant IT infrastructure; multiple independent data paths; dual-powered computing and environmental systems; fault-tolerant site infrastructure; continuous surveillance with strict access control; and ISO/IEC 27001 certification. Other services include technology refreshment, and the service can be easily scaled to accommodate a growth or decrease in imaging volumes.
