Carestream enhances its Kodak Carestream Digital Dashboard to feature proactive notification via text messages

Carestream Health : 26 February, 2008  (New Product)
Carestream Health has unveiled enhancements to its Kodak Carestream Digital Dashboard that include proactive notification for system events via e-mail or text messaging.
The enhanced digital dashboard will be available worldwide in the second quarter of 2008.

The digital dashboard, which supports Kodak Carestream RIS/PACS and Kodak Carestream Information Management Solutions, offers system administrators a convenient way to proactively monitor equipment performance, storage utilisation and user volumes-from virtually anywhere.

The digital dashboard also enables administrators to verify network communication of other vendors' devices. Having a consolidated view of system performance data allows an administrator to maximise department productivity by staying a step ahead of potential bottlenecks, and enhance personal productivity by reducing daily system administrative tasks.

Digital dashboard enhancements include:

- Radiology and PACS administrators can elect to receive user-configurable e-mail or text message alerts for issues ranging from disk space and table space thresholds to disruptions in network connectivity and failed processes. These preferences can be changed at any time, and notifications can be sent to other users when the primary administrator is out of the office or is not on call. Administrators can also opt to receive on-screen notifications so they will be alerted to a system event when working in another application on their desktop.

- Integration of the IBM Lotus Sametime module with the dashboard allows administrators to instantly communicate with radiologists, physicians and other system users.

- An enhanced user interface presents information in a more convenient format and allows maintenance checklists to be managed separately for each server.

- Dashboard updates, training and feedback sessions, and product news can be delivered directly to the administrator's desktop via an icon that changes colour when new content has been posted.

- RIS reports are now available (in addition to PACS reports) so administrators can easily view snapshots of exam progress and other workflow characteristics.

Carestream Health markets a fully featured RIS/PACS platform, along with an enterprise-wide storage management architecture that manages images and patient information stored on various hardware platforms at multiple locations.

The company's radiology solutions address the diverse operational needs of clinics, imaging centres, hospitals and healthcare networks, including orthopaedic, mammography and oncology facilities.
