PACS Critical Results Module Helps Facilities Comply With JCAHO

April 8, 2011 – Carestream Health’s new PACS module delivers embedded critical results notification and is available on all new orders and as an upgrade for Carestream PACS version 11.0 and higher. The new critical results module enables U.S. facilities with older RIS systems to meet JCAHO requirements for tracking the reporting and receipt of critical clinical findings.

“Many healthcare providers that are replacing their PACS have older RIS systems that do not supply critical results capabilities,” said Hadas Padan, Carestream Health’s director of product management, healthcare information solutions. “Implementing a PACS with this functionality eliminates the expense of third-party software and the need for integration.”

Padan noted that Carestream Health and other suppliers have embedded critical results reporting into their latest RIS platforms, but packaging this feature with PACS delivers a new option for healthcare providers.

2-D and 3-D digital breast images

Since the widespread adoption of digital imaging and PACS, referring physicians seldom visit radiology reading rooms, substantially reducing a major source of feedback for radiologists.

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.
