Clalit Health Services’ implementation of a CARESTREAM Vue PACS was rated as one of the best IT projects by People and Computers Group, an Israeli print and online magazine dedicated to IT. The magazine conducts an annual competition for the best IT projects implemented in Israel. More than 200 projects were submitted for the competition followed by an awards ceremony conducted in late December 2011.
According to the judges, “Clalit has implemented a PACS to manage all its image data. The system provides a fail-safe, centralized/distributed architecture with redundancy and manages more than 4.5 million annual exams with a data volume of more than 250 terabytes. The PACS provides instant access to imaging data from anywhere and creates one unified imaging patient file. The implementation of the system has resulted better service to remote communities in Israel."
Clalit also implemented Vue Connect powered by CARESTREAM SuperPACS so that radiology and patient information can be shared easily across the multi-site, multi-domain enterprise.
