Improved Access To Patient Information From Multiple Imaging
Providers and Industry Leading Technology.
The medical community
has recognized the value and benefits of viewing x-ray images in an electronic format.
As different medical imaging providers have installed image viewing systems of different
makes and models the continuity of care for patients with medical imaging studies
from different providers in different locations has developed into a fragmented
system that contributes to complexities and delays in patient care. Receiving CD’s
of patient imaging studies has become common, however, it is often difficult to
use these CDs and it requires that providers learn how to use a variety of different
viewing programs. It also becomes unmanageable to keep track of the multitude of
web-based sites and their associated usernames and passwords to access information
on your patients.
The goal of OCI is to improve provider access to patient information through collaboration
among multiple medical imaging providers who have agreed to use a common, shared
system rather than fractioned, independent systems. Through this collaboration,
we can build one shared system that is easier for providers to access with the goal
of building a complete radiographic history for patients of this community within
one system for the purpose of improved patient care.
The Oregon Community Imaging Goal is to:
- Facilitate a community based x-ray viewing system that provides for a comprehensive
radiographic history on patients with both reports and study images available from
any computer that can access the internet.
- Provide help desk support to any users accessing the system.
- Provide providers with a single point of access with a single username and password
to access patient x-rays and reports.
- Expedite patient care and reduce report turnaround time by having a patient’s complete
history of x-rays in the system, eliminating the need for providers to request x-rays
and the time associated with delivery between facilities.
- Leverage the exam volumes of multiple imaging providers to reduce the per study
costs that any organization could achieve independently and reduce overall costs
within the system of healthcare.
