HIE Image Sharing for a Statewide Stroke Network

4:30pm - 5:30pm Tuesday, March 6
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Murano 3301

Description

Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP), the HIE serving Maryland and DC, has implemented an image exchange service to facilitate the real-time access of emergency images for specialists at trauma centers. The first use-case is aimed at providing neurologists access to brain images as patients present at remote community hospitals. This session will illustrate how CRISP assists neurologists to more quickly assess and treat stroke patients presenting at any location – improving triage, saving lives and reducing the cost of care. They will also illustrate how health systems are able to reduce radiology costs.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Illustrate the value of decreasing time to treatment for acute ischemic stroke and intracerebral hemorrhage patients through an HIE image
  • Demonstrate how an HIE with an image sharing service can improve triage and assist in clinical decision making, leading to improved patient outcomes
  • Recognize the potential savings of time and costs based on ROI studies conducted at participating sites as well as reduction of radiation exposure to patients
  • Contrast sharing images through HIEs with stand-alone image sharing networks
