Instead of seeing health reform as a challenge, our own Cristine Kao, global market director for HCIS at Carestream, believes it is an opportunity to improve what we are doing in healthcare on a day-to-day basis. That opportunity for improved care is being led by the patients, who are becoming increasingly involved in the monitoring and management of their own care.

Instead of seeing health reform as a challenge, our own Cristine Kao, global market director for HCIS at Carestream, believes it is an opportunity to improve what we are doing in healthcare on a day-to-day basis. That opportunity for improved care is being led by the patients, who are becoming increasingly involved in the monitoring and management of their own care.

In the video below produced by Intel Healthcare, Kao explains why patients are becoming more involved in their care, how medical imaging fits into the mix, and what Carestream’s MyVue patient portal offers to complement this trend.

The portal empowers patients to access, share and help manage their own images and exam data using a range of user-friendly browser-enabled devices. It allows real-time collaboration between patients and healthcare providers – helping to eliminate the need for duplicate exams and the production of CDs, DVDs or films.
