ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 5 — Geary Community Hospital (Junction City, Kan.) recently purchased and installed Carestream Health’s Clinical Collaboration Platform (see video link) that features enterprise imaging, vendor-neutral archiving and its Vue Motion enterprise viewer. Vue Motion was the top rated Universal Viewer in the 2018 Best in KLAS Software & Services Report.  “Our previous configuration involved contracts with several suppliers, which created higher costs and required extensive integration. Carestream delivers a fully featured platform with advanced tools at an affordable price,” said Kyle Ibarra, Director of Radiology & Nuclear Medicine, Geary Community Hospital. The hospital’s Clinical Collaboration Platform supports advanced visualization, fully featured reporting, lesion management, 3D tools, integrated voice recognition and other advanced features. It allows radiologists to read multiple modalities from a single workstation. The radiologists’ reading worklist is color coded so they can easily prioritize STAT reads over high-priority or routine exams.  Carestream’s modular platform also includes vendor-neutral archiving that delivers highly secure and reliable storage for all clinical data. The hospital’s Vue Motion enterprise viewer offers physicians convenient access to patients’ images, videos, waveforms and reports, and is FDA approved for clinical reading. “Rapid access to reports and key images allows referring physicians to enhance and expedite treatment decisions,” said Mr. Ibarra.    System administrators use Carestream’s Vue Beyond to improve departmental workflow. This platform provides real-time monitoring of metrics that include study volume, modality mix, patient type and report turnaround time. Carestream’s Clinical Collaboration Platform delivers standards-based data capture, management, archiving and distribution for imaging data across the healthcare enterprise. The platform’s Unified Core is the backbone that enables enterprise imaging and associates all data for each patient with a single patient record. This imaging data can be easily integrated within a healthcare facility’s EMR/EHR.
