University Hospitals Birmingham selects Carestream

University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust has chosen Carestream’s medical imaging solutions to support co-ordinated, collaborative care across the Trust’s hospital site.

The solutions will provide workflow management, clinical repository, diagnostic and image distribution functions as well as analytics applications to simplify medical image management and empower effective integration of services across sites for enhanced patient care.

The Trust’s new contract with Carestream will include access to the Clinical Collaboration Platform (VNA), the company’s enterprise imaging platform, built around a Unified Core and designed to simplify the consolidation, management and sharing of images enterprise-wide.

Alongside this the PACS solution includes Vue Reporting; its new Workflow Orchestrator tool, which directs imaging exams to appropriate clinical subspecialists before other available radiologists as needed.

Barnaby Waters, Imaging Technical Lead for the Trust “The single Carestream PACS solution being used at all the UHB sites across Birmingham will allow us to improve the imaging services we provide to our patients. The advanced image review and analysis tools for our clinicians and radiologists will help us interpret our diagnostic data more quickly. The robust dual datacentre architecture should avoid clinical downtime and with our fully integrated Business Intelligence we will always know what is going on. I am very excited.”
