Israeli health system taps Carestream for digital workflow
Clalit Health Services, which consists of 12 hospitals and 40 imaging centers, has deployed Carestream Health's Vue PACS and Vue Archive.

At Tel Aviv, Israel-based Clalit, Vue PACS and Vue Archive—with a Vue RIS to be completed this year—are managing information for more than five million procedures annually. The systems provide the ability to centrally manage patient information, while simultaneously allowing real-time access from any location, Rochester, N.Y.-based Carestream said.

Clalit also implemented Vue Connect, powered by Carestream SuperPACS Architecture, so that radiology and patient information can be shared across the multi-site, multi-domain enterprise. While each hospital and imaging center continues to manage its own imaging data, Vue Connect enables Clalit’s radiology staff to provide sub-specialty reading and consultation across the entire healthcare system. The enterprise workflow architecture delivers a global patient worklist while maintaining synchronization with each local PACS.
