Rochester, N.Y., May 1, 2018 — Premier has awarded a three-year group purchasing agreement to Carestream Health for Enterprise Image Management Solutions. Effective immediately, the new agreement allows Premier members, at their discretion, to take advantage of special pricing and terms pre-negotiated by Premier for Carestream’s Healthcare Information Technologies—which includes its Clinical Collaboration Platform (video) that features enterprise image management, vendor-neutral archiving and Vue Motion enterprise viewer.
Carestream’s Clinical Collaboration Platform delivers standards-based data capture, management, archiving and distribution for imaging data across the healthcare enterprise. It allows radiologists to read all modalities from a single workstation and supports lesion management, 3D tools, breast tomography, cardiac CT, breast MR and post processing.
As part of its Clinical Collaboration Platform, Carestream’s Workflow Orchestrator directs each imaging study to the best radiologist for each individual case based on subspecialty, location and affiliation. Responsive reading by radiologists and expedited critical results notification capabilities can equip physicians to deliver enhanced patient care.
Carestream also offers its Clinical Collaboration Platform as a cloud service that manages more than 26 billion images in public and private cloud data centers around the world.
