Carestream’s progress with NHS Scotland PACS Carestream Health Inc. marked its one-year anniversary as an independent company with an announcement of “significant progress” with the NHS Scotland National PACS Project implementation. The project now has 21 sites connected out of the country’s 39 hospitals, with 10,000 general clinical users and 200 radiologists registered on the system.
Based on May 1 statistics, the system currently stores over 1 million images and is using 10 terabytes of capacity within the national archive.
For Carestream, reaching the half way stage in the seven months since being given the go-ahead to deploy, is a significant step in rewarding NHS Scotland’s confidence in the company following the initial sale by Kodak.
The implementation of Carestream PACS allows cross-site exchange of data via a single clinical system, the company said. Since all studies from all hospitals are stored in a national archive, a treating clinician can query and retrieve data no matter where a patient is admitted.
