September 21, 2007 - Carestream Health Inc. announced it has secured a multimillion-dollar order with the Veterans Health Administration’s (VHA) New England Region for the company’s premier healthcare IT systems, allowing the company to provide healthcare IT solutions that include a KODAK CARESTREAM PACS, a regional archive, data migration, network integration and other professional IT services.
The company will install its PACS (picture archiving and communications system) along with three years of image storage capacity at each of the region’s eight hospitals. In addition, the company will collect scheduling information from existing radiology information systems (RIS) and create a regional worklist to integrate patient information with each diagnostic imaging exam. It will also create a central regional archive with at least five years of image storage capacity that will be managed by KODAK CARESTREAM Information Management Solutions.
The contract also includes data migration from existing PACS systems and optional CARESTREAM PACS features such as integrated voice dictation, orthopaedic surgical templates, and native 3D viewing of imaging exams.
CARESTREAM PACS offers a virtual desktop environment that allows authorized users to access any application, including 3D processing, from any desktop inside or outside the organization. The platform’s dynamic streaming capabilities reportedly reduce the need for large bandwidth network connections.
