Carestream Health’s radiology information system (RIS) earned an award for “Exceptional New Product or Service” from the Innovation and Technology Association of Prince Edward Island (ITAP) in Canada. The award recognizes the innovative technologies and development methodologies of the company’s RIS platform, as well as its worldwide sales and support.
ITAP’s annual awards recognize local information technology companies that contribute to the economy and the IT industry through product development and technology adoption. Carestream Health’s RIS research and development team is based on Prince Edward Island, on the east coast of Canada. Representatives from the team were present at the ceremony last week to receive the award.
The company’s innovative RIS features several time-saving features including structured reporting, standard answers, and the ability to copy content from prior reports. The RIS platform supports voice-driven commands that allow users to create a report without using a keyboard or mouse. This platform also facilitates communication with colleagues through built-in critical results notification, and supports peer review and emergency department discrepancy workflows.
