Carestream Health names additional Centres Of Excellence worldwide

Carestream Health : 23 October, 2007  (New Product)
Several new leading hospitals have been designated by Carestream Health as ‘Centre of Excellence’ sites and brings to 20 such locations around the world.
The organizations were selected because of their commitment to being on the leading edge of healthcare technology and patient care.

In addition to hosting visits for other healthcare professionals who want to see products from Carestream Health in action, these facilities will collaborate with the company's research and design experts to develop new digital medical imaging and healthcare IT solutions to meet the needs of healthcare facilities around the world.

The newest Centre of Excellence sites are:

Latin America
American-British-Cowdry Hospital, Mexico City, Mexico
Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein, Sao Paulo, Brazil

Europe/Middle East
Erasme Hospital, Brussels, Belgium
Grupo Portugues de Saude, Lisbon, Portugal
Stavanger University Hospital, Stavanger, Norway

Asia Pacific
Kitasato Medical Center Hospital, Saitama, Japan .

These facilities have implemented systems from Carestream Health's digital imaging and healthcare IT portfolio including:

- 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 provides radiologists with immediate electronic access to medical imaging exams;

- 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;

- Kodak Directview Digital Radiography (DR) and Computed Radiography (CR) systems that capture medical imaging exams digitally, instead of on radiographic film.

In early May 2007, Carestream announced it had signed agreements with 15 healthcare institutions to serve as Centres of Excellence.

These facilities were Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, Long Beach, California, USA; Queensway Carleton Hospital, Ottawa, Canada; Rochester General Hospital, Rochester, NewYork, USA; University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, NewYork, USA; Borg Imaging Group, Rochester, NewYork, USA; 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; Hunter New England Health, NSW, Australia; and Kansai Medical University Hirakata Hospital, Osaka, Japan.
