Carestream Health, Rochester, NY, has signed a contract to supply its latest RIS/PACS solution to both the Taunton and Somerset National Health Services (NHS) Foundation Trust and the Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in England. The two trusts decided to work collaboratively in sourcing their preferred PACS/RIS solution and opted to use the NHS Supply Chain Framework to purchase these from Carestream.

The new systems will allow the trusts to work collaboratively using global worklists to achieve the significant efficiencies offered by cross site working and reporting. The installation will include Carestream Vue Motion zero footprint viewing capability and Carestream Vue Archive, allowing staff across both Trusts secure, real time access to complete patient records seamlessly via a patient-centric vendor neutral archive with a universal viewer.

The Carestream Vue RIS will run on the latest V11 software, which provides color coded interfaces and offers individual views of the interface according to user requirements, wherever they are located. The new software version will enhance information sharing, particularly the ability to collaborate seamlessly across multiple sites and multiple clinical specialties.
