This framework and new platform will allow IT staffs to easily and affordably add hardware for greater system scalability. Users can install and run the RIS client from a URL; software upgrades are automatically downloaded and installed to reduce maintenance. The new RIS will display graphics and commands intuitively and adapt content according to the individual logged in and their role (radiologist, scheduler, technologist). Users can personalize this interface to further enhance productivity, from scheduling to reporting. It will support both basic and advanced screen commands, allowing new users to become productive quickly. Experienced users can further expedite workflow. A web portal that enables on-line scheduling within parameters set by healthcare providers will improve patient satisfaction. An advanced suite of tools allows greater collaboration among clinicians. The new RIS will equip healthcare facilities to make real-time changes, tailoring workflow to specific needs. Changes will be preserved during future upgrades, eliminating costs for vendor-supplied customized code, which is time-consuming and is often redone with each upgrade. CARESTREAM RIS has always offered excellent integration with other systems – an advantage preserved in this new platform.
