Henry Ford Hospital (Detroit) has integrated Rochester, N.Y.-based

eHealth Global Technologies’ eHealthConnect medical record collection service with the hospital’s existing EMR and PACS.

The company says the product is being used by the transplant, hematology/oncology and neurosurgery departments, where specialists have immediate access to patient information, including external documents and images to help determine the appropriate course of treatment.

Clinicians can electronically connect with eHealth Global customer support team to collect, digitize, organize, store and secure medical records. Medical records are integrated directly into the hospital’s EMR, and radiology images are transferred in DICOM format into the PACS over a VPN, the company touts.

Henry Ford Hospital is a 903-bed tertiary care hospital, education and research complex in Detroit’s New Center Area, and the flagship hospital for Henry Ford Health System. Henry Ford is a Level 1 trauma center.
