Pembroke Regional Hospital (PRH) has partnered with PocketHealth to improve patient access to diagnostic imaging and reports.
With a PocketHealth account, patients can obtain fast, easy and permanent online access to their recent or prior medical images and diagnostic reports from Pembroke Regional Hospital, eliminating the need to return to hospital and pick up their stored images on a CD.
Additionally, patients can upload previous imaging from a CD-ROM or USB, or share their imaging electronically with any physician or hospital anywhere. For physicians, medical images can instantly be viewed on any device in a Health Canada-certified viewer, without the need for additional software or account set-up.
PocketHealth subscribers also have access to PocketHealth Report Reader which defines complex medical terms in order to assist with the understanding of reports and prompts patients to take follow-up action, if required.
“PocketHealth is thrilled to partner with Pembroke Regional Hospital to empower patients with access to their medical imaging and reports,” said Rishi Nayyar, Co-Founder and CEO, PocketHealth. “Together, we are committed to facilitating better communication, enhanced patient engagement and contributing to the overall delivery of high quality care.”
Patients can request their records at pockethealth.com/PRH. Once the records are available for viewing, the patient will receive an email from PocketHealth with a secure link from which the images can be instantly accessed, stored and shared.
Pembroke Regional Hospital joins over 600 other hospitals, clinics and mobile imaging sites across North America that have adopted PocketHealth for their patients.
