Groningen (UMCG) Purchases Latest RIS From Carestream Health
Following a recent European tender process, Carestream Health has been awarded the contract to supply a new Radiology Information System (RIS) for eight departments at the University Medical Centre, Groningen (UMCG), the Netherlands. Installation is scheduled for December 2010 and the CARESTREAM RIS will interface with an existing Rogan PACS.
UMCG is one of the largest hospitals in the world, offering regional tertiary care to the northern part of The Netherlands. The Radiology Department undertakes approximately 180,000 exams annually, equating to around 500 patients per working day.
This latest installation will mean that Carestream Health is present in all the hospitals within the Provence of Groningen. Stichting Samenwerkende Ziekenhuizen (SSZOG) signed a seven-year RIS/PACS eHealth Managed Services (eMS) with Carestream Health in March 2010 and Martini Hospital currently has a four-year RIS/PACS agreement with the Company.
