Image and record sharing is often cumbersome and expensive and still does not reach all caregivers – despite large investments in EMR, PACS, VNA and HIE. Furthermore, communication back to referring physicians to update them on their patients’ status is manual if completed at all. The healthcare continuum is still disconnected.
See how a new and unique single Image Workflow Solution supports:
- Getting images and records before treatment
- Internal sharing during treatment
- External sharing after treatment
Existing investments in EMR, HIE and PACS are leveraged as part of a unified solution to streamline continuity of care, lower healthcare costs, improve patient and referring physician satisfaction and achieve meaningful use.
