Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT), an ONC-ATCB, has certified Carestream's Vue RIS v. 11 as a complete electronic health record (EHR).
The certification is 2011/2012 compliant and is in accordance with the applicable eligible provider certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
Carestream’s RIS is designed for collecting or tracking receipt of Stage 1 data (including an active patient medication list and a number of ambulatory clinical quality measures).
In addition to collecting Stage 1 data, Carestream’s RIS provides embedded voice recognition, critical results reporting, centralized patient scheduling and management reports that track patient referrals by physician and modality reading by each radiologist.
Containing a native ACR peer review feature, Vue RIS tracks reviews of an original diagnosis by a second radiologist and meets requirements set by the American College of Radiology.
Vue RIS also provides specialized auditing/ tracking functions for mammography exams that enable organizations to become MQSA certified without the need for a separate mammography information system.
Carestream Health digital medical solutions president Diana Nole said Vue RIS v.11 provides a complete EHR that allows radiologists and other specialists to efficiently manage imaging workflows while simultaneously capturing and reporting the data required to satisfy Stage 1 requirements for electronic health records.
"With our Vue RIS physicians can enhance patient care while achieving operational efficiencies and reduced expenses," Nole added.
