Carestream Health announces the purchase of its CARESTREAM PACS, CARESTREAM DRX-Evolution System, and CARESTREAM DRYVIEW 5800 laser imager by facilities serving the Muscogee (Creek) Nation and Citizen Potawatomi Nation, both of Oklahoma.

The Citizen Potawatomi Nation Health Service purchased a PACS and DRX-Evolution to advance its move from a film and paper-based workflow to an all-digital environment. The PACS interfaces with the Citizen Potawatomi Nation’s HIS/RIS System. “Having patient data flow between our information systems and the DRX-Evolution system saves us time and helps eliminate the potential for errors,” said Radiology Coordinator Sharon Gerards, RT (R)(M).

The Muscogee (Creek) Nation Division of Health ordered a DRX-Evolution System and a laser imager for its Okmulgee Indian Health Center, which had not previously offered in-house x-ray capabilities. Since patients no longer need to leave the clinic to have radiology procedures performed, the health center expects to save 60 to 90 minutes per patient.
