Carestream Customer, Marion Hospital, based in Ohio, is featured discussing its reasoning for their implementation of our Enterprise Viewer, Vue Motion.
"For Ohio's Marion General Hospital, streamlining workflow meant replacing the PACS."We needed to shift from the IT standpoint," said John Wiggins, the hospital's technical services manager.
"We needed more storage and a better migration system for our data."
Additionally, Marion's radiologists requested enhanced voice recognition capability that didn't require extensive training, as well as better integration with patient demographics and history.
After a roughly year-long search involving eight vendors, Wiggins said, the hospital selected Carestream Vue Motion, a vendor-neutral image viewer. Alongside meeting the above-mentioned requirements, this viewer provides report templates and lets radiologists track and analyze tumors and access previous studies quickly.
"It had been so cumbersome to try to track patients, to look for multiple measurements, and do continuous monitoring," he said. "That's why there was a need for a tool to automate this for us."
To date, he said, the hospital has experienced improved data migration, mobile accessibility, and improved image sharing with other hospitals.
