March 2, 2016 — eHealth Technologies and Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP), a regional health information exchange (HIE) serving the state of Maryland and the District of Columbia, have successfully begun the implementation of eHealth Connect Image Exchange across the state of Maryland.

eHealth Connect Image Exchange provides authorized users with ready access to diagnostic-quality medical images to care for their patients when, where and how they need it. Medical images are now part of the aggregated patient record on the CRISP Query Portal, and will enable healthcare providers who utilize CRISP's HIE services to access, view, compare and transfer fully diagnostic-quality medical images — including X-ray, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET) and ultrasound studies — from anywhere and at any time with a single click. 

"Providing the clinical community with the ability to instantly access, view and collaborate on their patient's images further fulfills our mission to help providers securely and appropriately share data to improve health outcomes and the quality of patient care," said Ryan Bramble, CRISP Director of Integration.  "We are pleased to announce that our pilot group of hospitals have been connected and are already successfully sharing diagnostic-quality medical images with the providers and care teams who need them." 

eHealth Technologies will showcase its medical image sharing services at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2016 annual conference and exhibition, held Feb. 29–March 4 in Las Vegas.
