Solution Provider Offers Advice for Choosing an Enterprise Imaging Platform; Unveils Downloadable White Paper, “Accessible Images, Stronger Outcomes”
NEW YORK, January 10, 2017 – One of the most important discussions in healthcare today centers around the shift from fee-for-service care to value-based care, a directive that in large part will be determined by healthcare providers’ ability to marry important patient images, documents and other clinical multimedia files to the patient’s electronic health record (EHR). Too often today, EHRs don’t present the whole patient story. This means physicians must re-order tests unnecessarily or make care decisions without a comprehensive patient record to contribute to their decision-making accuracy. According to Logicalis Healthcare Solutions, the healthcare-focused arm of Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), this is a problem enterprise imaging was designed to resolve. To help healthcare CIOs examine the important role enterprise imaging plays in value-based care, Logicalis is offering a new, downloadable white paper, “Accessible Images, Stronger Outcomes” as well as seven tips for selecting the right enterprise imaging platform.
“From advanced visualization tools and measurements to ‘medical selfies,’ healthcare organizations must examine a comprehensive enterprise imaging platform to meet the sophisticated collaborative needs of the entire care team as well as engaged patients in today’s value-based care environment,” says Kim Garriott, Principal Consultant, Healthcare Strategies, Logicalis Healthcare Solutions. “Enterprise imaging provides the answer.”
Enterprise imaging solutions are purpose-built imaging engines that give healthcare systems a modular, phased approach to managing images as well as the ability to deliver real-time collaboration among caregivers all on a single platform. And, because enterprise imaging is a pervasive solution, it offers healthcare providers a clear and cost-effective detour around the roadblocks currently standing in the way of true value-based, patient-centric care and the financial rewards associated with delivering it.
When exploring options for an enterprise imaging platform, what are some of the top things to look for? The following checklist offers seven solid suggestions.
