Norwegian Contract for Carestream RIS/PACS

Carestream has been awarded the contract to supply CARESTREAM Vue RIS and Vue PACS to Helse Sør-Øst (HSØ), the largest of the four Regional Health Authorities in Norway, with 35 hospitals covering 56 percent of the population of Norway. The contract spans eight years and the first phase of installations will extend to five Trusts.

“This is one of the most prestigious and comprehensive contracts ever undertaken within Healthcare IT for Radiology in the Nordic region and is a great win for Carestream,” said  Lars Karlsson, Head of Carestream Health, Nordic and Baltic Region. 

Carestream’s Vue RIS delivers embedded voice recognition along with centralised patient scheduling and management reports that track patient referrals by physician and modality reading by each radiologist. Worklists can be tailored to meet workflow needs and reporting is streamlined with auto-insertion of patient and exam information, and integration with existing PACS. 

Carestream’s Web-enabled Vue PACS delivers integrated advanced visualization, 3D post processing, dictation, critical results notification and a mammography module that eliminates the need for dedicated workstations.

A Communication and Information exchange solution, founded on existing integration components in RIS and PACS, will ensure a secure exchange of patient health information between the legal entitles in the region according to local legislation.
