Carestream Introduces Upgrades to Vue RIS Platform

New features include clinical document exchange, mammography workflow

November 10, 2014 — Carestream’s latest version of Vue RIS (radiology information system) offers workflow enhancements that address specific needs of healthcare providers around the world. The latest version of Vue RIS with these capabilities, which will be demonstrated at the 2014 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference, is available worldwide in December 2014. Current users of Vue RIS can purchase an upgrade to the latest version when it becomes available.

Vue RIS now offers clinical document exchange, meaning with the press of a button, a patient’s clinical history can be brought into the RIS and sent or received via secure e-mail. This allows referring physicians to view a complete patient clinical history in conjunction with imaging studies and this clinical summary also can be shared with other healthcare providers. Providing a more holistic view of the patient can lead to enhanced treatment decisions.

The newest RIS includes advanced functionality required by specific countries and regions, including a digital signature and a mammography double-blind reading workflow that manages all patient communications. The scheduling module used for screening programs can schedule thousands of exams simultaneously according to specific instructions, such as “all women in the system between the ages of 40 and 60 who have not had a screening exam in the last 12 months.” The RIS will schedule the exam and send each patient an e-mail or a letter. If a patient does not approve the appointment date or time, they can use Carestream’s MyVue patient portal to change their appointment date.

Streamlined sharing of patient information and other new features are expedited through tighter integration between the RIS and Carestream’s Vue product family including the MyVue patient portal, Vue Beyond dashboard, Vue Reporting and Vue Motion zero-footprint image viewer.  

Additional new features include:

•    Multi-resource scheduling to schedule/manage exam rooms, physicians and equipment in a single action
•    Inventory module and consumables tracking 
•    Scheduled management reports 
•    Link to exams at the technologist level 
•    Patient notes system and secure messaging between the patient and the doctor 
•    Support for American College of Radiology codes for diagnosis; and 
•    Integration with InfoButton, which provides users with links to medical information repositories.
