UK PACS Win for Carestream

West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust and Carestream Sign New Five-Year Contract

PACS system

West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust (West Herts) located in the South East of the UK and Carestream have signed and exchanged contracts to replace the Trust’s existing PACS with a  Carestream Vue PACS and Vue VNA. The new five-year contract will be provided as a Managed Service, including software, services, workstation and server hardware.

West Herts comprises three hospitals — Watford General Hospital, St Alban’s City Hospital and Hemel Hempstead General Hospital. The latter is located close to the Carestream UK Head Office. The Trust provides acute healthcare services to a core catchment population of approximately half a million people living in West Hertfordshire and the surrounding area. It also provides more specialist services to a wider population, serving residents of North London, and the counties of Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and East Hertfordshire. In total, West Herts performs in excess of 300,000 radiology exams a year.

Lisa Emery, chief information officer for West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust said: “This contract will support us to be able to enable clinical images to be shared, quickly, securely and cost effectively. We felt that this was the most efficient and effective management clinical system, which will help to improve patient experience and patient care.”

Carestream’s Vue PACS will provide enterprise-wide review, data management, distribution and archiving. From a single workspace, physicians and radiologists can access the clinical tools and applications they need for convenient local and remote reporting. A web-enabled diagnostic viewer provides integrated advanced visualization, 3D post processing, lesion management, dictation, critical results notification and a mammography module, eliminating the need for dedicated workstations. The Vue VNA works with the Vue PACS to consolidate separate imaging systems into one repository, using the latest interoperability standards.
