Colorado Canyons Hospital and Medical Center is the first Mesa County hospital to launch Image Exchange
Colorado Canyons Launches QHN Image ExchangeIn mid-June Colorado Canyons Hospital and Medical Center became the first Mesa County hospital to go-live with the image exchange technology through the QHN HIE. This service allows Colorado Canyons Hospital to provide higher quality, more responsive care to their patients by assuring their medical images will be safely and securely accessible to healthcare providers across western Colorado.
The new Image Exchange feature in QHN is a great enhancement to medical information delivery,” stated Dr. Michael Neste MD, Director of Radiology. Any medical provider with access to QHN will be able to view their patient’s Radiologic images, from Colorado Canyons Hospital, on their personal computer. There is no longer a need for direct access to a hospital PAC system. It is as simple as clicking a link embedded in the Radiology report in QHN. In addition, the interactive tool provides the opportunity for the Radiologist and medical provider to collaborate real-time while viewing the images simultaneously.”
“Technology advances in medicine are embraced at Colorado Canyons Hospital. We are excited to be one of the first facilities in the valley to be using the latest technology that allows the medical provider to link directly from a QHN result to see their patient's images,” said Darrel Miller, PACS Administrator. “Time savings, in addition to eliminating human error without having to cross reference or log into a separate application, makes this move in technology a win for all sides; especially the patient who no longer needs to hand carry reports or films to their doctor.”
