Managing care across multiple facilities and care settings is made more difficult when images and data are managed and accessed from disparate systems. North Mississippi Health Services, a 2012 Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award Recipient, serves a diverse patient population in 24 counties of Mississippi and Alabama. At the 650 bed flagship hospital, North Mississippi Medical Center (NMMC), the care team has found that consolidating the silos of data that existed across the cardiology imaging departments helps them achieve their goals for quality care delivery.
In this webinar Barry Bertolet, M.D., FACC, Carla Durham RN, and Ed Quillen Ph.D., from NMMC discuss how their utilization of the McKesson Cardiology CVIS has allowed them to consolidate their CVIS into a single database. They provide suggestions on best practices for implementing cardiology imaging solutions in a regional health service setting and answer questions on their experiences with the McKesson Cardiology system.
The webinar took place Oct. 18, 2016.
