Zero-Footprint Viewer Enhances Convenience; SuperPACS Exchanges Patient Imaging Data Between Disparate RIS, PACS

February 14, 2012 — Carestream demonstrated its Vue picture archiving and communications system (PACS) and Vue Connect powered by SuperPACS technology offer healthcare IT staff and PACS administrators at the 2012 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference.

Carestream’s Vue PACS provides on-demand access to medical imaging data and reports with its vendor-neutral Vue Motion zero-footprint web viewer. Vue Motion is cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use with mobile devices such as Apple iPads, expediting image review by clinicians who are on the move.

Vue Motion eliminates the need to download or upgrade image-viewing software at dozens of on-site and remote workstations. The intuitive design also reduces the need for user training. These attributes allow IT staff members to focus on other tasks while enhancing the convenience and productivity of on-site and off-site clinicians.

Carestream’s SuperPACS technology accurately and efficiently exchanges information with disparate radiology information system (RIS) and PACS system at any location for a streamlined multi-site radiology workflow.

The SuperPACS architecture allows IT staffs to deliver key advantages to radiology and PACS managers: a universal patient worklist with tracking of patient name, identification number and originating provider for each exam; automatic delivery of a patient’s prior imaging studies to the radiologist to expedite reading; and rapid delivery of the radiology report back to each healthcare provider’s RIS.  

Carestream’s Vue PACS and SuperPACS platforms are designed to meet the needs of hospitals and healthcare enterprises, regional health networks, single- or multi-site imaging centers, radiology groups and teleradiology services.

The company also offers a versatile portfolio of Carestream Vue for cloud-based services that enables radiologists, clinicians and referring physicians to access patient data, imaging exams and radiology reports quickly and easily from any location. This pay-for-use services platform also facilitates image sharing within healthcare systems and among authorized, but often unaffiliated, providers.
