Carestream Health has secured a digital imaging network-picture archiving and communication system (DIN-PACS IV) contract from the US government to provide medical imaging and management systems and services.

The deal, which could be valued at around $150m, includes the supply of medical image management products and services for government facilities.

As part of the previous DIN-PACS contract, the company has been offering products and services for the past five years.

Carestream said that its new contract term with the US government includes one five-year base period and one five-year option period. 

Under the new deal, Carestream will provide healthcare IT products such as Clinical Collaboration Platfrom, Vue Motion universal viewer, MyVue patient portal and Vue Beyond management dashboard.

Clinical Collaboration Platform enables physicians to view patient records, which are stored on different systems, sites and networks.

Vue Motion is a universal image viewer that uses a web browser or information embedded in an EMR portal to offer access to imaging data and patient information by onsite or remote clinicians.

MyVue is a secure portal, which enables patients to view, share and store their own images and related medical information.

Vue Beyond business intelligence and reporting dashboard, which accesses PACS data, offers managers with a real-time view of imaging workflows.

Carestream healthcare information solutions general manager Ludovic d’Aprea said: "Carestream continues to work closely with clinicians and medical staff at government healthcare facilities to equip them to deliver timely, personal care for patients and their families.

“We have a reputation for excellence in medical image management technologies, and our proven solutions are installed in commercial and government facilities in the United States and around the world.”
