Carestream and ScImage sign cardiology imaging agreement

Carestream Health : 24 October, 2007  (New Product)
Carestream Health and ScImage have signed an agreement that enables Carestream Health to offer medical professionals a enterprise-wide management solution for cardiology data in the USA and Canada markets.
Sales representatives from Carestream Health in the USA and Canada already have started selling ScImage's PicomEnterprise solution-with built-in capture and visualisation tools-for integration with Carestream Information Management Solutions (IMS).

A cardiology solution featuring the data management capabilities of Carestream IMS combined with the benefits of PicomEnterprise can help improve patient outcomes, increase efficiency and reduce departmental costs.

ScImage's powerful web-based cardiology software solution-PicomEnterprise-enables cardiology departments, outpatient cardiology clinics, and private-practice cardiologists to use a single database to manage, distribute and safeguard cardiac information gathered at various points of care.

PicomEnterprise decreases cost and increases productivity by providing a single point of access to echo, cath, ECG, vascular, nuclear cardiology and haemo-dynamic reports.

This software is designed specifically for the cardiology environment using a single platform architecture that unifies document and image management. ScImage's solution can acquire DICOM or non-DICOM images, and provides the ability to attach all images, documents, digital dictations and even Microsoft Windows-based files to a patient's record and to provide a centralised location for accessing patient history.

Carestream IMS is a scalable platform for the management and storage of digital medical images and information offering on-site or remotely hosted storage solutions. Carestream IMS can be scaled to meet the needs of small-to-large hospitals and medical practices as well as regional or national healthcare information systems-all within the same software framework.

'We are pleased to establish such a partnership with this internationally recognized leader in medical imaging technologies. The combination of PicomEnterprise and the IMS platform is a natural fit,' stated ScImage founder and CEO, Sai P Raya, PhD. 'The products are complementary and support the enterprise-wide distribution of multi-disciplinary clinical content.'

Medical professionals using solutions from Carestream Health with PicomEnterprise will find it easier and more efficient to review and manage images from patients' cardiology exams. Cardiology images and reports are also available via the Internet, providing secure, remote access to critical patient studies.

'Multi-lab, multi-modality cardiology PACS solutions reduce the administrative burden by enabling hospital IT departments to consolidate individual PACS solutions into a cohesive, centralised solution,' said Michael W Jackman, president, Healthcare Information Systems, Carestream Health. 'The combination of Carestream Information Management Solutions and PicomEnterprise can lead to lower cost of ownership, while helping deliver improvements in the way cardiac care is delivered and managed.'
