ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 14 — Carestream demonstrated the potential for greater productivity and cost savings offered by its CARESTREAM Vue for Cardiology at the 2013 American College of Cardiology annual meeting and expo.
The company’s Web-based Vue for Cardiology consolidates review of echocardiography, cardiac cath, ECG, nuclear cardiology and hemodynamic results and delivers easy comparison of priors. This efficient workflow helps enhance both productivity and patient care. On-site or remote reading of clinical data is available from any networked workstation.
“Consolidating different cardiology lab systems into a single workspace can deliver lower total cost of ownership,” said Kiran Krishnamurthy, Carestream’s Worldwide Product Line Manager of Healthcare Information Solutions. “In addition to cost savings, our Vue for Cardiology streamlines enterprise and remote access to medical images for more efficient diagnosis, reporting, storage and distribution of clinical data.”
Vue for Cardiology also delivers the following advanced features:
• Expedites echocardiography reporting with structured templates, pre-populated measurements and a single package for all echo procedures
• Simplifies cardiac cath reporting by including data points from advance hemodynamic monitors and eliminating dictation and multiple systems; and
• Integrates ECG carts from multiple vendors to create worklist-based access to ECG wave forms so physicians don’t need to search for patient files.
Carestream’s Vue for Cardiology can be combined with Vue PACS for review of radiology or cardiology imaging studies. Data storage costs can be reduced by linking the PACS systems with Carestream’s vendor-neutral Vue Archive or Vue Cloud-Based Services.
