Carestream has been awarded a multimillion-dollar healthcare IT contract for Veterans Affairs hospitals in the Pacific Northwest region, which includes Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska, and parts of Montana. Carestream will install its Clinical Collaboration Platform throughout VISN 20 healthcare facilities. The implementation of Carestream’s enterprise imaging platform, including Vue PACS, Vue Motion and Vue Archive, will help streamline medical image management, Carestream officials say.

“Our team of experts demonstrated the ability to significantly improve diagnostic imaging and information workflows across all facilities in this region while supporting a smooth conversion to a new EMR system that will be installed in the coming months,” says Jacques Cornet, Carestream’s vice president for sales in the U.S. and Canada. “The evaluation team selected Carestream because they believe our comprehensive proposal provides the best value for all VISN facilities in this region.”

Veterans Affairs representatives evaluated multiple PACS technologies based on several factors, including technical specifications, functionality, and project governance. The Clinical Collaboration Platform, Carestream officials say, will provide VA radiologists with tools to support radiology workflows across the multi-site network.
