Challenge

A significant number of diagnoses require an x-ray, CT or MRI scan, ultrasound or other radiographic images to confirm. Similarly, images and reports from an ECG, EEG, colonoscopy, retinal scans and other procedures should be available to physicians as they care for patients and use an electronic medical record. Optimally, a physician should be able to access earlier images and reports and should not have to log into multiple online systems to access patient data, images, and lab results. Coordination and integration of images with the electronic medical record should increase efficiency and quality of care, and reduce expensive and unnecessary duplication.

Cloud-Based Integrated Medical Imaging

Solution

With ViTel Net's Integrated Telehealth Imaging solution, the physician logs into the electronic health record and all the data across multiple facilities and time points, including diagnostic images, is easily accessible. Radiographic images and their reports can be viewed without having to access a separate PACS system.

ECGs are viewed side by side with a cardiologist’s interpretation. Still and video images from an upper GI endoscopy can be reviewed. This solution integrates the range of imaging studies within the electronic health record, saving time and improving the quality of care.
