InterSystems and eHealth Technologies Announce Partnership
InterSystems Corp., a provider of software for healthcare interoperability, and eHealth Technologies, a provider of imaging solutions for electronic health records (EHR) and health information exchange (HIE) solutions, partnered in 2012 to provide single-click access to diagnostic-quality images such as X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance images (MRIs) and ultrasounds via the InterSystems HealthShare strategic informatics platform. HealthShare is currently used by hospitals, integrated delivery networks, and regional and national HIEs worldwide.
External images that traditionally take hours or days to retrieve, if retrievable at all, are typically hand-carried by patients, couriered on CDs or sent via large file transfers. Using eHealth Technologies’ eHealth Imaging Solutions, images are delivered along with results, enabling care providers single-click access to seamlessly view and collaborate using a secure, diagnostic-quality, zero-footprint, Web-based application. In addition, emergent image delivery will support emergency care providers by providing images prior to report generation, a capability that will drastically reduce the time-to-care in the most vital situations.
The digital imaging capability will be available on InterSystems HealthShare in fall 2012.
