Joint Township District Memorial Hospital (St. Marys, Ohio) purchased and installed a Carestream Cardiology PACS and integrated the platform with its Carestream Vue PACS and Carestream Vue RIS. The hospital is a member of Grand Lake Health System.
The hospital’s cardiology team selected Carestream’s Cardiology PACS after evaluating the tools and functionality of several systems. Factors included the systems’ reading tools, structured reporting with electronic signature, and support for efficient remote reading.
The team chose against another supplier’s cardiology PACS because that platform required a separate reading application and user log in for each type of exam. The hospital currently uses its cardiology PACS for echo cardiograms and plans to implement ECGs and Holter monitors this year.
