Eastman Kodak Company demonstrated
enhancements to its CARESTREAM Radiology Solutions platform, including
productivity-enhancing features and tools that serve entry-level users
as well as large healthcare systems and regional organizations. These
new features were shown as a works-in-progress at the annual meeting of
the Radiological Society of North America.
Radiology Solutions include KODAK CARESTREAM PACS (picture archiving
and communications system) and KODAK CARESTREAM RIS (radiology
information system). CARESTREAM Radiology Solutions provide a
that addresses the operational needs of clinics, imaging
centers, hospitals and healthcare networks, including orthopaedic,
mammography and oncology facilities.
"Kodak's newest PACS platform will support workflow Grid computing, which facilitates storage and retrieval of information throughout an enterprise with a shared infrastructure that can serve multiple sites throughout a city or region," said Michael W. Jackman, general manager, Healthcare Information Solutions, and vice president, Eastman Kodak Company.
Workflow Grid computing will increase the availability and redundancy of a multi-site system. It also provides efficient management of distributed storage systems and delivery of archived data to any review location.
This workflow Grid technology can provide synchronized global worklist and reporting to all sites, while allowing each site to operate independently of the network or centralized server when necessary. Business continuity is expedited by supporting access from a secondary data center if the primary data center experiences equipment failure or a natural disaster. Cost efficiencies can be achieved through the sharing of storage resources, with flexible allocation that can be adjusted to match the changing needs of each facility.
Kodak's current version of CARESTREAM PACS software offers a virtual desktop environment that allows any application, including 3D processing, to be delivered to any desktop inside or outside the organization.
The latest PACS software upgrade is designed to enhance the effectiveness of Kodak's virtual desktop with the following new features:
also announced that it is working to incorporate the following
capabilities as part of its CARESTREAM Radiology Solutions platform:
