In its continuing efforts to help the health care industry accelerate the use of electronic medical records, Basking Ridge, N.J.-based Verizon is expanding its Medical Data Exchange platform to allow more types of digital patient health data to be shared.
Previously, the Verizon Medical Data Exchange facilitated transcriptionist-to-physician and physician-to-physician sharing of dictated notes. The expanded offering now enables a wider range of health care providers–from large health systems to rural hospitals to small physician practices–to securely and privately share additional digital records such as X-rays and lab results.
To help enable this transition, Verizon is introducing new IT consulting services that are well-suited to meet the needs of providers that can now use the Medical Data Exchange. These professional services will help members of the exchange quickly leverage the nationally available platform as more providers increasingly embrace electronic medical records.
