Carestream's next generation Vue PACS (picture archiving and communications system) platform is a work in progress. The platform is designed to create productivity-enhancing capabilities for radiologists and referring physicians including:
- Embedding access to key image data using links within the report, which merges images into the reporting workflow
- A teleradiology module that gives remote radiologists access to prior exams and automatically sends radiology reports to the requesting facility without requiring significant investment by healthcare facilities or radiology/teleradiology groups.
Embedding patient medical images in the report is a further enhancement of the native reporting capabilities available with Carestream’s Vue PACS. New approach to teleradiology The new PACS also will offer an optional Vue for Teleradiology module (also a work in progress) designed to enable efficient off-site reading and reporting by remote radiologists for multiple healthcare facilities. The new module will employ Carestream’s Vue Connect platform, which will enable radiologists to access worklists from unaffiliated healthcare providers and automatically deliver reports back to each facility. Carestream’s Vue Motion zero footprint image viewer will be used to transfer the imaging studies. Vue Motion currently enables access to imaging studies and radiology reports on mobile devices such as an iPad by referring physicians around the world. Carestream’s PACS platform will employ 64-bit architecture, which is designed to optimize server performance to help enhance the new reporting and teleradiology services, as well as other functions.
