Kestral Welcomes The Royal Children's Hospital
Recently celebrating its 140th anniversary, The Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne (RCH) is Victoria’s major specialist paediatric hospital. With close to 4000 highly skilled staff throughout the organisation, the RCH extends a range of clinical services, from primary to quaternary level care and health promotion programs to children and young people across Victoria, New South Wales, Tasmania and the world.
The RCH provides a full range of diagnostic imaging services including multi-slice computed tomography, MRI, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, computed radiography and digital subtraction angiography. All imaging modalities acquire images in a digital format. The digital images are stored in a central server and are easily viewed in the Medical Imaging Department using a high resolution monitor, the wards and even remotely away from the RCH campus.
RCH Medical Imaging has now been transitioned from Kestral’s legacy RMS product to Karisma. In a project involving staff from both organisations, Kestral staff appreciated the help of the RCH. The outstanding efforts of RCH staff played a pivotal role in the timely completion of this project and Kestral would like to thank all of those involved.
The RCH has been a valued Kestral client since its RMS installation went live in November of 1998. Kestral looks forward to working with the RCH Medical Imaging staff for many more years to come.
