Rochester General Health System in New York, US, has deployed Carestream’s Cardiology PACS, Carestream Vue for Cardiology, to streamline workflow and enhance patient care.
Rochester General Health System cardiac services vice president Amy Craib said Cardiology PACS offers excellent functionality and will integrate with the hospital’s radiology PACS and EMR.
"Having an integrated solution will provide our clinicians with faster, easier access to patient information, which will allow us to provide the highest quality care to our patients," Craib added.
The web-based cardiology PACS facilitates the review of echocardiography, cardiac cath and nuclear cardiology exams from an on-site or remote workstation or on web-enabled devices, streamlining reading and reporting for cardiology exams.
Carestream’s platform eliminates the cost of dedicated workstations by enabling existing workstations to support the review of both radiology and cardiology studies.
The technology simplifies echocardiography reports by using structured templates, pre-populated measurements and a single package for all echo procedures.
The hospital is considering leveraging its existing Vue Archive as a centralised repository for cardiology and radiology imaging studies.
Vue Archive aids in creating a single point of access for imaging exams, lab and pathology results, and other forms of patient data.
