Kodak Extends Presence in Baltic Region

Eastman Kodak Company’s Health Group has been awarded a contract for KODAK CARESTREAM Radiology and Enterprise Information Management Solution platforms for East-Tallinn Central Hospital in Estonia, a key link in Baltic e-Health project. In the initial stages of the project, Kodak will deliver PACS, remote reporting and archiving solutions to the East-Tallinn Central Hospital to facilitate participation in two pilot projects in the fields of radiology and ultrasound that will cross country borders. The introduction of cross border telemedicine is complex requiring integration and interoperability with different country healthcare systems with different standards and laws.
“We chose Kodak because of its leading market position and wealth of experience in national and regional e-health projects,” said Dr Peeter Ross, director of R & D, East-Tallinn Central Hospital. “Here in Estonia we are innovative and forward thinking and required a supplier who could match our aspirations to participate in the wider European e-Radiology market. Kodak demonstrated an ability to meet our needs in every respect and readily shared their experience of e-health.”

(Shown are 2-D and 3-D digital breast images.) A software module to be described April 5 at the SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium has been providing that feedback for radiologists interpreting breast images at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
