U.S. Department of Defense Issues $10 Million Contract For Carestream Health, Inc.'s PACS Platform


10/19/2010 12:57:09 PM

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Oct. 19 — The U.S. Department of Defense has awarded Carestream Health a maximum $10 million contract that enables the agency to order PACS systems and related sub-systems and components. Under terms of this agreement, this equipment can be purchased by the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and federal civilian agencies.

Carestream Health was also recently awarded a sole-source PACS service agreement for the National Institutes of Health. Based in Bethesda, Md., NIH is the world's largest clinical research complex and its Clinical Center is the nation's largest medical research hospital. The organization incorporates 27 different Institutes and Centers, each with its own specific research mission.

Carestream Health’s PACS is currently in use at regional and national healthcare systems, and some of the largest and most prestigious HMOs and healthcare institutions in the world. CARESTREAM PACS interfaces easily with other clinical systems to expedite implementation of EHR/EMR platforms.

The company’s PACS delivers a host of productivity-enhancing features including: a unified user interface; a global patient worklist; automatic registration of volumetric exams; and centralized storage and viewing of non-DICOM and DICOM data. It also converts proprietary image data into a vendor-neutral format that helps preserve data integrity and streamlines data sharing among authorized users and facilities at any remote location.
