March 13, 2015 — The U.S. Navy selected Carestream’s picture archiving and communications system (PACS) for use on its USNS Mercy hospital ship. The USNS Mercy, based out of San Diego, California, provides acute medical and surgical services for Navy, Army, Air Force and Marine forces deployed on land or sea throughout the world. The ship also provides medical services for humanitarian relief efforts and victims of disasters.

USNS Mercy is the lead ship in her class of hospital ships operated by the U.S. Navy. The ship has 80 beds in its intensive care wards, 12 operating rooms and a total of 1,000 patient beds. Its medical staff provides comprehensive care that includes radiology imaging services, laboratory testing services, physical therapy and burn care.

PACS systems are used by hospitals, clinics and medical practices to store, manage and access and share patient medical images and information. Carestream’s Vue PACS with native Vue Reporting is authorized for use in U.S. Navy medical facilities after meeting stringent product security requirements required by the Navy’s DIACAP (Department of Defense Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process) certification process. Carestream currently has the only PACS and reporting systems that are DIACAP-approved for use on a U.S. Navy network.

The Vue Reporting module offers native voice recognition to streamline the reporting process and provides diagnostic results to radiology information systems or other PACS systems. The company’s Vue PACS can support multi-site reading of diagnostic exams and sharing of radiology information to help physicians determine the best treatment for each patient’s condition.
