June 21, 2016 — Carestream Health is reaching out to healthcare providers to help facilities convert from computed radiography (CR) to digital radiography (DR) in response to the decreased reimbursement schedule contained in the 2016 Consolidated Appropriations Act.

Carestream’s conversion team usually can upgrade a facility to DR in a day and its comprehensive approach includes pre-installation consultations as well as training and support. Team experts also help customers select and install affordable new DR systems if their existing systems are nearing end of life.

Carestream’s DR systems earned the top rating in MD Buyline’s Market Intelligence Briefing for both portable and room-based DR systems in every quarter of 2015. The company’s DRX-Revolution, DRX-Evolution Plus and DRX-Ascend systems scored high marks from healthcare providers for performance, reliability, installation and service.

According to the report, “Carestream has been a dominant player in this market … Carestream steals the thunder from other vendors through ‘firsts,’ such as the first wireless panel in the U.S. market and the first collapsible column design for a portable X-ray system.”

The report notes that Carestream’s third generation of DRX Plus detectors offers “a lighter-weight design, higher detective quantum efficiency (DQE), increased liquid resistance and improved battery life.”

Carestream also was praised in MD Buyline customer feedback sessions for its quality of workmanship, well-designed technology and outstanding customer service. According to the report, customers say “they can count on Carestream as an equal, working partner in their mission to deliver outstanding healthcare.”
