Junction City, Kan.-based Geary Community Hospital recently purchased and installed Carestream Health’s Clinical Collaboration Platform that features enterprise imaging, vendor-neutral archiving, and its Vue Motion enterprise viewer.
“Our previous configuration involved contracts with several suppliers, which created higher costs and required extensive integration. Carestream delivers a fully featured platform with advanced tools at an affordable price,” says Kyle Ibarra, director of radiology and nuclear medicine at Geary Community Hospital.
The hospital’s Clinical Collaboration Platform supports advanced visualization, fully featured reporting, lesion management, 3D tools, integrated voice recognition, and other advanced features. It also allows radiologists to read multiple modalities from a single workstation. What’s more, the radiologists’ reading worklist is color-coded so they can easily prioritize STAT reads over high-priority or routine exams.
Carestream’s modular platform also includes vendor-neutral archiving that delivers secure and reliable storage for all clinical data. Further, the hospital’s Vue Motion enterprise viewer offers physicians convenient access to patients’ images, videos, waveforms, and reports, and is FDA-approved for clinical reading.“Rapid access to reports and key images allows referring physicians to enhance and expedite treatment decisions,” says Ibarra.
Finally, Carestream’s Clinical Collaboration Platform delivers data capture, management, archiving, and distribution for imaging data across the healthcare enterprise. The platform’s Unified Core is the backbone that enables enterprise imaging and associates all data for each patient with a single patient record. And this imaging data can be easily integrated within a healthcare facility’s EMR/EHR.
