Carestream Health : 09 May, 2007  (New Product)
Carestream Health has signed agreements with healthcare institutions worldwide that have implemented the company's medical imaging and healthcare IT systems to serve as 'Center of Excellence' sites.
'These organizations were specifically chosen because of their commitment to being on the leading edge of healthcare technology and patient care', said Michael W Jackman, president, Healthcare Information Solutions, Carestream Health.

'We will work closely with these healthcare providers to design, develop, test and implement our next generation of powerful digital solutions to enable operational efficiency as well as an enhanced patient experience'.

The Centre of Excellence sites are:

North America:

- Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, Long Beach, California.
- Queensway Carleton Hospital, Ottawa, Canada.
- Rochester General Hospital, Rochester, New York.
- University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York.
- Imaging Center: Borg Imaging Group, Rochester, New York.

Latin America:

- East Uppsala University Hospital, Uppsala, Sweden,.
- Hopital Fondation Saint Joseph, Paris, France.
- Florence Nightingale Krankenhaus Kaiserswerth, Dusseldorf, Germany.
- Grupo Hospitalario Quiron, Madrid, Spain.
- USL Ferrara - Lagosanto Hospital, Lagosanto, Italy.
- Santa Maria Nuova Hospital, Reggio Emilia, Italy.
- Al-Sabah Hospital, Kuwait City, Kuwait.

Asia Pacific Hospitals and Health Services:

- Hunter New England Health, NSW, Australia.
- Kansai Medical University Hirakata Hospital, Osaka, Japan.

In addition to hosting visits for other healthcare providers who want to see products from Carestream Health in action, these facilities have agreed to collaborate on future innovations in digital medical imaging and healthcare IT.

By providing a clinical test environment and expert insights, these organizations will help Carestream Health develop products tailored to the needs of healthcare customers around the world.

Some of these products will carry the Kodak brand, as Carestream Health provides the innovation powering Kodak medical imaging and IT products.

The Center of Excellence facilities have implemented systems from the company's Carestream Solutions portfolio that includes: Kodak Carestream Radiology information system (RIS) which enables more efficient scheduling, ordering and billing of patient imaging exams; Kodak Carestream picture archiving and communications system (PACS) which provide radiologists with immediate electronic access to medical imaging exams and will enable faster and more efficient distribution of radiology reports and images to referring physicians and patients; Kodak Carestream information management solutions (IMS), which equip healthcare IT staffs to more efficiently manage information stored in a variety of systems across an enterprise, region or country.

These scalable solutions help reduce expenses by providing intelligent, automated management tools and by equipping facilities with centralised management of decentralised storage systems; Kodak Directview digital X-ray systems that capture patients' medical imaging exams digitally, instead of on radiographic film.

These systems offer rapid results and reduce the need for retakes.
Carestream Health is an independent company with more than 8,100 employees serving customers in 150 countries around the world.

Carestream Health will continue to use the Kodak brand with its products.

The company now owns all former Kodak Health Group sub-brands such as Carestream, DirectView, DryView, Softdent, Industrex, X-Sight and PracticeWorks to name a few.
