Eastman Kodak Company's Health Group and National Digital Medical Archive (NDMA) are collaborating on product-integration initiatives that support the European mammography market's transition from analog to digital imaging and information technology. For the partnership, the two organizations will combine products and systems to create a new family of offerings for improved management, archiving and processing of images and information related to mammography screening. The products involved include:
- KODAK CARESTREAM Information Management Solutions (IMS). Driven by the KODAK VIParchive software platform, these systems combine software, hardware and professional services to enable the consolidation, control, continuity and access to all fixed archived content within a healthcare facility or among multiple healthcare facilities within a geographic region; and
- NDMA will add to the partnership the analytical tools required for quality assurance and compliance, as well as visualization tools dedicated to streamlining the often-complicated workflow processes involved with mammography. In addition, the Citizens Health Portal called myNDMA will be included to provide patients with personal health record management tools to securely upload and store their digital medical images and electronic health records into a private web site.
