Carestream Health has been awarded a contract to replace all existing RIS and PACS installed across the Region of Southern Denmark with a single unified IT system to be known as RIPA SYD.

The multiyear agreement includes various modules of the Carestream Clinical Collaboration Platform, including ordering and scheduling modules, a global worklist module, a radiology workstation module, an enterprise viewer module, a capture module, and business analytics.

In issuing the tender for the new contract in early 2018, the Regional Council's Digitization Committee sought to improve collaboration and facilitate image and information exchange across the Region of Southern Denmark's four hospital trusts: Odense Universitetshospital, Sygehus Lillebælt, Sygehus Sønderjylland, and Sydvestjysk Sygehus. These trusts currently use a mix of RIS and PACS from a range of suppliers to handle their imaging and data requirements.

At present, four independent systems are being used by 11 radiology departments regionally. However, with approximately 1.5 million radiology exams per year and around 1.2 million citizens to support, a unified system will help improve healthcare management, Carestream said.
