Healthcare supply chain expertise and contracting company Novation has awarded a contract to Carestream to provide its Carestream Vue RIS+PACS, Carestream Cardiology PACS and Carestream Vue for Vendor-Neutral Archive.
Under the three year contract with the option for two one-year renewal extensions, Novation members will gain access to Carestream’s radiology, cardiology healthcare IT solutions from 1 May 2013 to 30 April 2016.
Carestream’s next generation RIS+PACS optimizes productivity and maximizes each healthcare provider’s investment, while Carestream Cardiology PACS consolidates review of echocardiography, cardiac cath, ECG, nuclear cardiology and hemodynamic results with easy comparison of priors.
Vue Archive can help reduce data storage costs by supporting radiology and cardiology exams.
Other Novation agreements include Carestream CR and DR imaging systems for radiology, dental digital imaging systems, X-ray film and laser imagers.
Carestream Health US and Canada medical sales general manager Doug Spotts said the company’s healthcare IT solutions provide enterprise-wide review, data management, distribution and archiving for radiology and cardiology exams.
"This streamlined workflow can help boost productivity for physicians while simultaneously helping to reduce costs through efficient sharing of IT resources," Spotts added.
