Carestream debuts pay-as-you-go archiving in France
Thirty-seven medical facilities throughout France have selected Carestream Health’s pay-as-you-go hosted information management system (HIM).

Carestream’s remote archive architecture is based on a GRID infrastructure that supports both local and remote storage and is powered by Kodak Versatile Intelligent Patient Archive (VIParchive) software, a radiology archiving platform that allows on site storage for quick access to data to be combined with off site storage at a data center for protection, disaster recovery, data exchange and access.

Customers range from individual imaging centers such as Centre Duroc in Paris, to GCN St. Vincent, with eight imaging centers in the western region of France, Carestream said.

Private facilities in France receive a financial incentive for implementing a digital archiving solution for radiology images, according to Carestream.
