Taunton and Somerset

Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust and Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in the UK have selected Carestream Health’s RIS/PACS technology platform.

The trusts worked together in sourcing their preferred PACS/RIS platform and will use the NHS Supply Chain Framework to procure the technology from Carestream.

The trusts will install Carestream Vue Motion zero footprint viewing capability and Carestream Vue Archive for access to patient records through a patient-centric vendor neutral archive featuring a universal viewer.

Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust clinical support head Simon Rigby said, "Improving the patient experience and improving patient care are key strategic goals for my Trust; Carestream Health will deliver many clinical and administrative benefits to support these goals."

Both trusts will leverage the new systems to work jointly using Global Worklists to attain efficiencies offered by cross site working and reporting.

Carestream Vue RIS will run on new V11 software, which provides colour-coded interfaces and offers individual views of the interface based on user requirements.

Information sharing will be augmented with the new software version, particularly the ability to collaborate across multiple sites and multiple clinical specialties, according to Carestream.
