Carestream releases patient portal as cloud service

Carestream Health’s MyVue patient portal will be available as a cloud service in March.

MyVue allows patients to access, manage and share their medical images and radiology reports with healthcare providers. It also positions U.S. healthcare providers to meet Stage 2 Meaningful Use requirements, according to Rochester, N.Y.-based Carestream.

Deploying the portal as a Vue Cloud Service is based on a monthly fee. The model can accommodate more users without additional network expansions. Carestream manages remote access, networking requirements and security procedures for users of its cloud services, while addressing regulatory compliance and service uptime.

MyVue is also available as an onsite portal for users of Carestream’s Vue PACS and Vue Archive, a vendor-neutral archiving system.

The MyVue portal emails a secure log-in to each patient, and medical images and reports can be accessed through the log-in from a variety of Web-browser enabled devices. No software downloads are required for patients or physicians. MyVue’s HTML5 viewer can be deployed on web-enabled devices such as the iPad and complements Vue Motion, Carestream’s vendor-independent image viewer for clinicians and referring physicians, according to the company.
