Users of company’s DR system give it top ratings according to KLAS report

 Carestream DRX-Evolution Highest for Overall Performance KLAS Report

July 1, 2013 — Carestream has again earned a top rating against major competitors for its digital X-ray systems that are based on its proven wireless DRX technology. As reported by KLAS in its just published “Digital X-Ray Performance 2013 — Impact of a Wireless Workflow,” the company’s Carestream DRX-Evolution scored highest for overall performance.

In a survey of more than 200 radiology professionals, the report stated, “Carestream has built on their wireless detector success with the DRX-Evolution. Providers are taking advantage of moving detectors between different rooms or mobile X-ray systems. The DRX-Evolution wireless rooms are also meeting provider needs with an intuitive user interface, great image quality and reliability.” Carestream also received the highest rating in three survey indicators, which were "Implementation On Time,” “Usability” and "Quality of Training.”

KLAS is independently owned and operated, and has ratings on more than 250 healthcare technology vendors and over 900 products and services. Headquartered in Orem, Utah, with researchers throughout North America, KLAS publishes approximately 60 performance and perception reports each year.

In a section of the report titled “Bottom Line on Vendors,” Carestream’s DRX-Evolution system is described as follows:

 “Reliable unit with great patient throughput. Easy-to-use and intuitive GUI consistent across CR and DR offerings. Detector battery life is meeting needs. Switching detectors works well, with nearly 40 percent using it.”

In another part of the report titled “Special Questions Commentary,” users provided additional candid comments about the performance of Carestream’s DRX-Evolution:

 “I would compare the DRX-Evolution to Apple's products. It is very intuitive and it tells users in layman's terms how to get procedures done. When it is trying to solve a problem, it tells us step by step how to get any type of procedure done.”

“This is an extremely efficient and user-friendly product.”

The DRX-Evolution system can perform many different general radiology, trauma and emergency room X-ray procedures. Its ability to deliver rapid, high-quality images enables facilities to improve productivity and can help reduce radiology equipment expenses. The DRX-Evolution is designed to move around the patient instead of positioning the patient based on the configuration of the X-ray equipment, which can help enhance care.

The system’s wireless DRX-1 detector can be removed from the wall stand or table to easily handle difficult imaging studies, as well as exams for patients in wheelchairs or on stretchers. Digital images are sent over a secure wireless network and appear on the system console in seconds.

Carestream’s DRX detector forms the foundation for a highly productive family of innovative digital X-ray systems. Earlier this year, the company’s Carestream DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray System earned the top rating in MD Buyline’s First Quarter 2013 User Satisfaction Report. MD Buyline provides more than 3,000 hospitals with unbiased data on vendors, products, services and user satisfaction ratings.
