Carestream Health Chooses IBM’s Lotus Sametime Software for Immediate Collaboration on Urgent Patient Cases

November 27, 2007 - Carestream Health Inc. announced at RSNA an agreement to integrate and sell a key component of the IBM Unified Communications and Collaboration (UC) platform — IBM Lotus Sametime. The combination of Lotus Sametime software and Carestream Health’s radiology solutions is intended to facilitate rapid communication, including instant messaging and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) interactions between radiologists and other medical professionals involved in the diagnosis and treatment of patients.
With Carestream Health’s systems and IBM software, medical professionals will be able to find experts quickly based on location and topic, and collaborate instantly through instant messaging or a VoIP conversation.
Additionally, users can share computer screens in real time, highlighting key parts of an image to collaborate on a diagnosis. If a radiologist, for example, determines that urgent care is required, the referring physician can be immediately contacted to communicate critical results. By clicking on the referring physician’s name — which appears within the application — the physicians can begin an instant messaging dialog or initiate a VoIP call. If additional opinions are needed, colleagues can quickly be added to a VoIP conference call.
The integration with Lotus Sametime software will involve Carestream Health’s portfolio of radiology solutions including:
- CARESTREAM RIS (radiology information system), a fully featured workflow, scheduling and information solution for radiology departments;
- CARESTREAM PACS (picture archiving and communications system), used for management, viewing, sharing and storage of all radiology imaging studies; and
- The KODAK CARESTREAM Digital Dashboard that provides system administrators with a convenient way to proactively monitor equipment performance, storage utilization and user volumes.
Representatives from Carestream Health will begin selling, installing and supporting this new tool worldwide — available on new and previously purchased systems from Carestream Health — in the second quarter of 2008.
