Carestream Health has announced a reseller partnership with Zebra Medical Vision, to provide imaging analytics that deliver automated population health insights and decision support tools to clinicians, payers and providers.

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND - (HealthTech Wire / News) - Carestream Health has announced a reseller partnership with Zebra Medical Vision, to provide imaging analytics that deliver automated population health insights and decision support tools to clinicians, payers and providers.
Use of Zebra Medical Vision software can enhance diagnostic quality while helping to maximise productivity and minimise costs. The software analyses past and current imaging studies within Carestream’s radiology diagnostic client to identify chronic conditions that may require preventative treatment.
Carestream is adding the Zebra software to its Clinical Collaboration Platform to help healthcare providers manage high-risk patients by targeting conditions such as osteoporotic fractures, high coronary calcium levels, emphysema and fatty liver tissue. Zebra software also can be used as a real-time assistant to help radiologists avoid missed diagnoses and increase consistency.
“Our goal is to equip healthcare providers with imaging analytics that can expedite early detection to help improve patient care. A holistic approach to analytics is the only way to achieve value-based imaging,” said Ludovic D’Aprea, Carestream’s General Manager for Healthcare Information Solutions. “That’s why we incorporated Zebra’s image-based analytics into Carestream’s existing real-time business dashboard and dose monitoring solutions.”
“We are enthusiastic about this global reseller agreement since many national government healthcare programs, large integrated health delivery networks and value-based health organisations currently use Carestream’s enterprise imaging platform. Adding Zebra analytics software to Carestream’s Clinical Collaboration Platform can bring immediate value to these providers,” said Elad Benjamin, CEO of Zebra Medical Vision.
Report analytics shown as work in progress
Carestream demonstrates combining imaging with report analytics using its NLP (natural language understanding) program, which is a work in progress. This program will provide real-time alerts to radiologists and specialists as they dictate or type a report to identify potential errors in critical findings, body part mismatches or gender errors. Its semantic search capability will analyse the context of reports to provide conceptual data that can be used for clinical references, research, business intelligence or population management.
Carestream’s Clinical Collaboration Platform (see video link) provides monitoring and analysis for:
• Business/operational planning including productivity metrics and resource optimisation;
• System performance including proactive monitoring and preventative maintenance;
• Clinical decision support including research and computer-aided diagnostics; and
• Quality metrics including error correction and discrepancy detection; critical results; regulatory compliance; participation in national registries and peer review.
