Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center (CCOC), a partnership with Summa Health System, Akron, Ohio, purchased a Carestream Vue PACS and 14 Carestream and Quantum DR systems to streamline workflow and help its 34 orthopedic and two plastic surgeons enhance patient care.
Crystal Clinic physicians perform over 16,000 inpatient and outpatient surgeries and conduct more than 60,000 medical imaging exams a year. They have 12 clinics in the greater Akron area that receive more than 105,000 clinic visits per year.
CCOC selected Carestream’s Vue PACS because it offered functionality including surgical templating and 3D imaging. Vue PACS also allows CCOC to use its existing digital dictation system and because Carestream’s Vue Connect interfaces with several different PACS systems including a competitive system from a CCOC partner.
