Carestream enhances Information Management Solutions platform to view patient data more easily

Carestream Health : 26 February, 2008  (New Product)
Carestream Health has released the newest version of Kodak Carestream Information Management Solutions (IMS) to offer healthcare providers more convenient viewing of medical imaging exams and other types of patient documents, while facilitating the integration of images with electronic medical record (EMR) systems.
The new capabilities will be available worldwide in the second quarter of 2008.

“The Carestream IMS platform is already able to manage and store a wide variety of imaging studies and fixed content patient files through a centralised database registry and repository. What we are adding is the ability to provide flexible viewing and display of these diverse file types side-by-side with DICOM image data,” said Michael W Jackman, president, Healthcare Information Solutions, Carestream Health. “In addition, our solution can help image-enable EMRs, since these systems are usually limited to transactional data and do not offer access to imaging applications.”

The newest IMS upgrade equips clinicians to view laboratory and pathology reports, imaging exams, video files, DICOM images and other types of patient data through one virtual desktop anywhere, anytime. Standards such as XDS (cross enterprise document sharing) protocol may be used to store and retrieve the fixed content file types, and HL7 is used to receive and store reports together with clinical patient data and other documents from clinical information systems.

Simplified access to patient information enhances the diagnostic process and simultaneously delivers improved staff and clinician productivity by negating the need to go to several locations to obtain information. Access is tightly controlled by system administrators: physicians and staff may be granted either read-only or read/write privileges, and access can be further limited to individual patient files or specific exam modalities.
