Healthcare research firm KLAS has given Carestream Health’s vendor-neutral archive (VNA) technology and universal viewer high marks in its KLAS Enterprise Imaging 2016 Report. Carestream tied with one other vendor for offering “the strongest and most consistent out-of-the-box image management functionality,” according to the KLAS report.

Carestream’s FDA-cleared Vue Motion also was highly rate in the universal viewer category and it “integrates well with the Carestream VNA and various service lines,” according to KLAS. Plus, Carestream’s Vue Archive “is easy to use, the training is effective, and the solution consistently works well,” the report stated.

The Clinical Collaboration Platform enables imaging providers to acquire and meta-data tag non-DICOM image data to ensure strong clinical information lifecycle management. It can integrate into existing electronic medial record systems and is currently deployed globally by single- and multi-site healthcare providers, as well as regional and national medical archive projects.

Ludovic D’Aprea, Carestream’s global general manager for healthcare information solutions, lauds the technology as a major advancement in the global radiology sector. “Carestream’s Clinical Collaboration Platform…can acquire, manage, and consolidate islands of systems and present a single point of access to patients’ clinical records,” D’Aprea says.

“Whether [providers] want to centralize with a VNA or federate with a universal viewer, the platform offers vendor-agnostic modules complete with a scalable Unified Core,” he adds.
