Medical images – x-ray, CT, MRI, and PET – are needed to help clinicians to understand and diagnose injuries and illnesses. Our patients come from all around our region, and all over the world. In order to share images to our partner physicians and regional hospital systems and even our patients, we have to store images on a CD or DVD.
We are evaluating a mechanism to securely share medical images electronically – thereby eliminating CDs and DVDs. We are able to share directly with outside physicians and health systems and are exploring how to share directly with our patients.
