Carestream RIS platform tracks radiation dosage, critical results
Carestream Health has globally released Carestream RIS, its latest RIS platform, to help enhance patient care through radiation dose tracking and user alerts, while ensuring confirmation of results delivery and appropriate follow-up by referring physicians via critical results notifications.

According to the Rochester, N.Y.-based company, the new RIS also offers data collection and reporting capabilities and enables users to enter radiation thresholds for each type of exam. Dose management is an option included with the platform that can be activated but is not required, the company added.

For critically ill patients, the RIS tracks critical results notification and issues warnings for aging messages to help ensure that patients receive prompt treatment, Carestream stated. The RIS is designed for user customization across a variety of features including: screen displays, patient communication materials, scheduling rules that can vary by site, management reports and other important functions, the company concluded.
