ROCHESTER, N.Y., Jan. 30 — Carestream Health earned top ratings from healthcare IT and radiology professionals for its CARESTREAM Vue Motion universal viewer (see video link), according to KLAS, an independent research organization that monitors healthcare vendor performance. With a score of 89 out of 100, KLAS named Vue Motion as the Category Leader in the Universal Viewer segment of the 2018 Best in KLAS Software & Services Report. The report will be published today.
“Carestream’s Vue Motion is very intuitive and easy to use. In fact, we have not had to train one physician,” according to one user. Another user reports that “The viewer is a light application. We just click the link, and the system pulls up the image, and we are in the patient’s chart.”
Vue Motion’s volume matching capabilities also earned praise. “If we were to scan a lumbar spine and the axial images were a little off compared to the lumbar spine images we took a few years ago, the system would do its best to match the images so they scroll together. That really facilitates a good comparison. It’s a feature we use all the time,” according to a user.*
The 2018 Best in KLAS awards are based on user scores compiled from the feedback of thousands of healthcare providers at clinics, hospitals and local, regional and national healthcare systems. Carestream’s Vue Motion Universal Viewer Earns 2018 KLAS Category Leader Award / Page 2
