At Elizabeth Wende Breast Care (EWBC) in Rochester, N.Y., access to prior images and the concerns of referring doctors is essential to patient care. When a patient is in need, there is no time to waste repeating tests or waiting on lab reports.
Utilizing health information exchange (HIE) has transformed care at EWBC since joining the Rochester RHIO in 2008. Gone are the days of waiting for the mail or a fax. Instant and secure access to a consenting patient's records means care is better informed, faster, and allows for the best possible patient outcomes.
Watch radiologist Stamatia Destounis, MD, FACR along with Salena Sachman, Community & Physician Liaison, speak on the impact of HIE at EWBC.
