He added that the Vue Radiology PACS integrated smoothly with the healthcare system’s EPIC RIS and EMR systems, which further advanced implementation. And Carestream’s Vue Motion enterprise viewer is also integrated with the medical center’s EPIC RIS, which expedites physicians’ access to patient imaging studies.
“Having a zero-footprint viewer is a major advantage and physicians have praised its ease of use. They began reviewing studies on it immediately and use it during patient consultations,” said Mr. Forsythe.
Carestream’s Vue Motion viewer provides convenient access to patient images and reports regardless of physician location. Vue Motion is FDA approved for clinical reading on a wide range of mobile devices.
The MyVue patient portal allows patients to easily and securely view and share their medical images with other physicians and healthcare systems. Both cardiology and radiology exams will be stored in Carestream’s Vue Archive that delivers highly secure, reliable storage.
“Rapid access to radiology reports and key images can help referring physicians enhance and expedite treatment decisions,” said Mr. Forsythe.
