November 12, 2009 - Carestream Health launched an enhanced vendor-neutral archiving solution that delivers a consolidated data storage and management solution for any data type, regardless of vendor.
The solution, which is a component of CARESTREAM Information Management Solutions (IMS), equips healthcare providers to bring disparate PACS and data systems into a shared, long-term data management solution that can streamline management tasks and reduce costs. Since the IMS platform supports popular storage products from leading vendors, healthcare providers can avoid expensive migration of legacy systems by adopting this flexible, standards-based architecture that can support new applications, information sources, modalities and data types.
Authorized users can access all types of patient records from a single virtual desktop—located anywhere in the enterprise—eliminating the need to review data at dedicated workstations. Furthermore, DICOM and non-DICOM data for each patient can be displayed side-by-side within a single viewing session, enabling maximum productivity. Data can be retrieved regardless of its physical storage device or location. With Carestream Health’s unique streaming and tunneling technology, data also can be quickly delivered to users, on demand from any location, eliminating the need to pre-fetch the data in advance.
Carestream Health’s IMS platform also includes an off-site archiving option known as CARESTREAM eHealth Managed Services.
