Hutchinson Regional Healthcare System Chooses PocketHealth

Hutchinson, KS, Jun 2, 2021 — PocketHealth, developer of healthcare’s most unique electronic image sharing technology, announced today that Hutchinson Regional Healthcare System has expanded its progressive approach to digital healthcare by giving patients access to their diagnostic imaging records through the PocketHealth platform.

The Joint Commission has awarded HRHS six Gold Seal of Approval accreditations, a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to safe and effective care.
