Today marks the launch of PocketHealth’s Record Retrieval – the first patient-consented, network-free way to source prior diagnostic imaging from any provider and any patient.
Record Retrieval solves challenges that hospitals and imaging centers face when it comes to requesting and retrieving prior imaging from patients, referring physicians and healthcare sites.
Typically, hospitals and imaging centers are required to source and retrieve prior imaging from multiple sources as part of the patient intake process. Many of these record retrieval methods are not secure, including CD-ROMs, VPNs or legacy image sharing networks. Waiting for patients’ images to arrive, managing manual imports and cleaning incoming patient data lead to delays in treatment and add costs, time and effort for administrative staff.
“Image sharing should be universal, and Record Retrieval accommodates every means for the provider to request patient imaging priors in a simple and effective way, without network and workflow limitations,” said Rishi Nayyar, Co-Founder and CEO, PocketHealth.
“Involving the patient and keeping them informed in their healthcare journey is integral to PocketHealth as we build out our no-network solution that securely opens up provider and patient access to medical imaging.”
“Fast and convenient importing of imaging studies from outside hospitals is increasingly necessary for the timely delivery of excellent healthcare,” said Dr. Euan Zhang, Neuroradiologist at Hamilton Health Sciences. “PocketHealth Record Retrieval is significantly more efficient than what can be achieved by existing legacy systems and is now an indispensable part of my radiology practice.”
With Record Retrieval, imaging can be digitally requested and retrieved by email or fax and the provider or patient on the receiving end can upload them through a secure link in two simple steps.
