Private not-for-profit organisation SYNCRONYS has partnered with clinical information services provider eHealth Technologies to offer care providers with access to medical images in New Mexico.
Under this partnership, eHealth Technologies’ Image Exchange services will be incorporated within SYNCRONYS’ Health Information Exchange (HIE) platform.
With this integration, care providers from hospitals, physician groups, laboratories, imaging centres, home health, emergency and various participating healthcare services across the state can also view, compare, collaborate, transfer, and publish diagnostic quality medical images.
All imaging studies including current and historical from all participating locations across the state will now be available via SYNCRONYS Query Portal and through other third-party applications.
SYNCRONYS chief executive officer Thomas East said: “Our partnership with eHealth Technologies allows SYNCRONYS to provide an optimal experience for HIE users with the ability to view and transfer medical images from the HIE interface.
“The capability of accessing medical images at the point-of-care enhances patient care across our state and will help to eliminate duplicative procedures.”
Besides SYNCRONYS, eHealth Technologies also collaborated with local, regional and state-wide HIEs across the US providing access to diagnostic quality medical images.
The partnership is expected to provide efficient and informed care while also removing duplicate imaging procedures.
eHealth Technologies HIE Solutions executive vice-president and general manager Gary Larson said: “We are excited to be a part of SYNCRONYS’ future by improving provider access to patient information that includes diagnostic images.
“By partnering together, residents of the state of New Mexico will have access to the highest level of care.”
