Carestream’s Vue RIS has received Meaningful Use stage 2 certification, making it one of the first RIS platforms to be certified for both stage 1 and stage 2 capabilities. The certification ensures that the system can exchange patient data and clinical documents with other certified EHR providers. The latest version of the system will become available in December 2014. Current Vue RIS customers can purchase an upgrade for the system when it becomes available.

The system’s updated capabilities for Stage 2 include family health history, health information portability and sharing, and online patient access to information and communication. Other changes affect the way information is tracked so it can be more effectively shared to improve overall patient outcomes.

When the system is combined with Carestream’s MyVue patient portal, patients will be able to view exam results; view and reschedule appointments; and share exam results with their primary care physicians.
