Kodak announces new contract for PACS and information management in Scotland
Kodak Health Group announced the signing of the largest contract to date for PACS and Kodak Carestream Information Management Solutions (IMS). The multi-million-dollar agreement with National Services Scotland (NSS) positions Kodak as the primary supplier to the NSS-led Scotland National PACS e-health project, the company said.
PACS data will be archived centrally at two data centers to serve the 16 Health Boards across Scotland. Every hospital across the country will have the ability to access prior images and reports regardless of where they were generated as a result of deployment of the Carestream Regional Information Management Solution.
Implementation will begin with two initial sites in Glasgow, and a phased rollout over the next 2.5 years should lead to full deployment anticipated in 2008.
