Beth Israel Medical Center in New York, US, has entered into a five-year contract to deploy CriticalKey’s KeyEngine software to electronically deliver radiology results directly to referring doctors’ electronic health record systems.

The patent-pending KeyEngine software links disparate systems to improve efficiency and deliver patient results more quickly.

It is also expected to improve patient care and cut costs.

Using the software, the 1,386-bed hospital will be able to integrate patient results from its radiology information system into the patient’s individual record in the participating physician’s electronic health record system, minimising delays and errors.
