Carestream Health has been awarded a contract by Helse SÃ¸r-Ãst (HSÃ) to implement its Carestream Vue RIS and Vue PACS systems. The contract spans eight years and the first phase of installations will extend to five Trusts.
The company's Vue RIS system delivers embedded voice recognition along with centralised patient scheduling and management reports that track patient referrals by physician and modality reading by each radiologist. Worklists can be tailored to meet workflow needs and reporting is streamlined with auto-insertion of patient and exam information and integration with existing PACS. Carestream's web-enabled Vue PACS delivers integrated advanced visualisation, 3D post processing, dictation, critical results notification and a mammography module that eliminates the need for dedicated workstations. A communication and information exchange solution, founded on existing integration components in RIS and PACS, will ensure a secure exchange of patient health information between the legal entitles in the region according to local legislation.
