Bryan Medical Center Purchases 15 CARESTREAM DRX Systems For Its Hospital, Outpatient Imaging Centers
ROCHESTER, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--
Bryan Medical Center (Lincoln, Neb.) purchased 13 CARESTREAM
DRX-1 Systems and two CARESTREAM
DRX-Mobile Retrofit Kits to streamline workflow and enhance patient
care at the East and West campuses of the system's hospital and its two
outpatient imaging centers. These healthcare facilities conduct more
than 155,000 medical imaging exams a year.
"Our evaluation of three vendors' wireless detectors involved our staff
working with the equipment and completing detailed evaluation forms.
Carestream's DRX detector and software was the clear favorite because of
its ease of use, image quality and advanced features like enhanced
visualization of tubs and lines," said Sharon Harms, Bryan Medical
Center's Director of Radiology. "It also offers remote reporting, which
is an important capability for our managers."
When installation is complete, 90 percent of these facilities' X-ray
exams will be captured on Carestream's digital radiography systems. The
healthcare system plans to install several additional DR systems in 2013
to complete its conversion.
"Converting to DRX systems delivers real advantages to both our staff
and our patients. Our physicians will gain instant image access from our
existing portable systems in our ED and surgical suites, which can help
enhance patient care," reports Harms. "Having direct image access in our
exam rooms will enable technologists to complete the X-ray exam without
leaving the patient, which enables greater patient safety and
satisfaction while enhancing our productivity."
