CARESTREAM Information Management Solutions provide storage virtualization and automatic and intelligent, rules-based clinical information life cycle management that can be customized to the unique requirements of single and multi-site healthcare systems, and communities, regions or countries that want to collaborate to improve care and lower costs through eHealth solutions or Regional Healthcare Information Organizations (RHIO).

"We wanted to go beyond implementing a standalone digital image management system for the radiology department and instead create a centralized software platform that could provide access to all of the hospital's image and information systems including PACS," said Mary Kasal, Good Samaritan Hospital's Vice President of Information Technology. "We expect Kodak's CARESTREAM EIM to save us up to $3 million in the next five years by eliminating the capital expense and maintenance costs required to support dozens of standalone information systems."

CARESTREAM RIM can extend intelligent information life cycle management to an entire geographic region, and has been deployed as part of Great Britain's National Health Service (NHS) National Programme for IT and Northern Finland's RATU eHealth project. CARESTREAM HIM offers business continuity and disaster recovery by hosting an organization's data remotely at a secure Kodak data center. This service offering allows customers to manage information as an operating expense and minimize capital investments.
