Physicians are now able to see radiology images from six radiology centers in the Greater Rochester (N.Y.) area through Rochester RHIO, the community’s regional health information organization, says the organization.
Borg & Ide Imaging, Clifton Springs Hospital, Rochester General Health System, Rochester Diagnostic Imaging, Rochester Radiology Associates, and Thompson Health join Lakeside Memorial Hospital in providing radiology images to the RHIO.
Rochester RHIO allows authorized users to see patient information, including radiology images, at any time from any computer with a secure internet connection. Altogether, more than 20 healthcare organizations in the Greater Rochester area provide patient information to Rochester RHIO, including lab test results, radiology reports and images, insurance eligibility, hospital transcribed reports and medication history.
Rochester RHIO, the regional health information organization, is a secure electronic health information exchange available to authorized medical providers in Monroe, Genesee, Livingston, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming and Yates counties.
