Carestream unveils RIS/PACS platform enhancements
Dec. 4—Carestream Health unveiled enhancements to Carestream RIS/PACS platform and showed Kodak Carestream Digital Dashboard and Carestream Business Diagnostics at the 93rd scientific assembly and annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago last week. 

Carestream PACS features increase efficiency while enhancing service to referring physicians and patients. New features include:
  • Built-in dynamic streaming capabilities that make advanced functionality readily available to authorized users inside and outside the facility 
  • Workflow grid technology that enhances enterprise-wide access to images and radiology reports
  • Enhancements to embedded clinical applications such as native 3D, image fusion, orthopedic templating and cardiac analysis
New productivity-enhancing RIS features include elimination of redundant data entry, delivery of information automatically instead of relying upon radiologist queries and new voice activated controls and voice activated standardized reporting that allow radiologists to conveniently dictate reports from any location. Carestream Health also recently launched a turnkey RIS/PACS imaging center solution that includes onsite and offsite storage options and workflow optimization services.

Kodak Carestream Digital Dashboard monitors Carestream RIS/PACS and information management solutions. The digital dashboard provides a convenient way to proactively monitor equipment performance, the number of concurrent users and communication with devices such as imaging systems and printers.

The company also profiled Carestream Business Diagnostics, a collaborative professional consulting service that improves quality and lower operating costs. The service uses a proven-process improvement methodology to deliver productivity gains and reduce waste.
