WHERE THE WORLD
CONNECTS FOR HEALTH
Enterprise diagnostic imaging strategies are evolving to provide clinical continuity within and outside health care organizations. In this presentation speakers will discuss the successes and lessons learned on a journey to simplification from physician, operational and IT viewpoints. During this fourteen month journey 8 PACS systems were consolidated, 5 million studies were migrated from 10 PACS systems, a centralized image repository was implemented with EHR integration along with 60000 exams being shared through a cloud sharing solution with other hospitals and providers in the community. Physicians now have streamlined access to a longitudinal record of a patient's diagnostic imaging history including specialties that have been stored in image repositories that were not widely accessible previously. Improvements to patient care, patient engagement, provider satisfaction and other efficiencies were immediately realized.
