February 20, 2015 — At the 2015 annual meeting of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), Carestream will demostrate its flexible Clinical Collaboration Platform, which now offers a new module to tag clinical data files and bring them into the workflow. These new capabilities build upon Carestream’s fully featured vendor neutral archive (VNA) architecture.
For years, patient data has existed in departmental systems such as radiology, endoscopy, pathology, cardiology lab results, and others. VNAs now link many of these systems together and provide clinical access from an electronic medical record or electronic health record (EMR/EHR). However there’s a piece that’s been missing: making unstructured data files accessible as meaningful clinical content by working with metadata.
Carestream further enhances its Clinical Collaboration Platform with a Web-based portal that can streamline information lifecycle management, while a universal viewer equips physicians with a comprehensive view of patient data when making diagnostic decisions. The platform also supports an embeddable viewer that allows patients to manage their own clinical data.
Carestream’s “take over” module preserves a healthcare provider’s existing infrastructure investment and minimizes the need for a costly migration. A real-time business dashboard module — also available with the Clinical Collaboration Platform — is offered to address healthcare information technology (IT) executives’ need for more intelligent data analytics to streamline operations and compliance.
