Imaging company Health Images and the Colorado Regional Health Information Organization (CORHIO), both based out of Denver, have announced that Health Images will now be sending radiology results performed at its 12 locations into the CORHIO health information exchange (HIE).
The companies said this agreement represents the first imaging center connection to the CORHIO HIE.
“We are proud to be partnered with CORHIO and offer this HIE technology to the physicians across the Colorado area," Shelley McLeod, Health Images vice president of operations, said in a prepared statement. "We are continually looking at ways to offer an extension of our unmistakable quality and spectacular service. Patients will have the comfort of knowing that their accurate health information is shared among physicians which raises the bar for level of treatment. Ultimately patient care is priority for us all and we are excited to embark on this journey with CORHIO.”
“We are thrilled to have Health Images connected to the HIE,” Morgan Honea, CORHIO CEO, said in the same statement. “Several recent studies have shown that health information exchanges help reduce unnecessary, repetitive imaging tests. With Health Images' 12 locations connecting to the HIE, I expect that patients and health insurers will further benefit from our services through reduced costs, time savings and enhanced patient care.”
