Winthrop-University Hospital Orders Cloud-Based RIS/PACS Services

April 1, 2011 – Winthrop-University Hospital, Mineola, N.Y., signed a seven-year, multi-million-dollar order for cloud-based RIS/PACS and vendor-neutral archiving services from Carestream Health. Carestream’s eHealth services deliver full RIS/PACS functionality for image review, storage and distribution throughout the enterprise including delivering advanced reading tools to on-site or remote radiologists.

“Based on a thorough evaluation, we elected to purchase cloud-based services instead of a traditional RIS/PACS on-site installation,” said Enrico Perez, BS, RT, CRA, administrative director, Winthrop-University Hospital’s department of radiology. “This service model is attractive because it offers affordable and predictable operating expenses, an uptime guarantee of 99.9%, and the ability to obtain ongoing technology refreshment from one of the world’s leading healthcare IT providers.”

Winthrop-University Hospital is a 591-bed university-affiliated medical center and state-designated regional trauma center.

“In the past, Carestream has demonstrated reliable and consistent leadership as our digital imaging provider,” said A. Orlando Ortiz, M.D., MBA, FACR, professor and chairman, Winthrop-University Hospital’s Department of Radiology. “We believe they have both the expertise and commitment to provide us with advanced technology, excellent performance and outstanding support for these vital healthcare IT solutions—all within a system that ensures the privacy of patient information as well.”

The company’s cloud-based services provide technology obsolescence protection and can reduce costs by up to 30 percent.

With the company’s cloud-based services, healthcare facilities pay a per-study usage charge instead of investing in building, maintaining and upgrading a large internal IT infrastructure.
