Carestream Health has won the public tender to supply an integrated Vue RIS, Vue PACS, and archiving system to the Azienda Sanitaria Provinciale (ASP) of Cosenza, a large trust in the south of Italy.
The new system will manage, store, and digitally process the radiology studies performed annually by the Cosenza ASP. Equipment and systems will be installed in two data centers, each capable of storing 145 TB of data and providing online storage for more than five years. Installation is scheduled for completion in June 2015, according to Carestream.
The trust has 14 hospitals and four outpatient clinics, an annual average of around half a million examinations, and a catchment area of more than 400,000 service users. The Cosenza ASP is the first provincial trust in the Calabria region to adopt a teleradiology system with the aim of improving the productivity and the quality of the service offered to patients, Carestream said.
