SYNCRONYS, New Mexico’s designated Health Information Exchange (HIE), has partnered with eHealth Technologies to give care providers in its community “one-click” access to medical images for patients from across the state.
Through eHealth Connect® Image Exchange, care providers from hospitals, physician groups, laboratories, imaging centers, home health, emergency and other participating healthcare services in New Mexico can access, view, compare, collaborate, transfer and publish diagnostic quality medical images as a seamless extension of their everyday user experience.
eHealth Technologies’ Image Exchange services will be integrated directly within SYNCRONYS’ HIE platform. This enables all current and historical imaging studies from all participating locations across the state to be accessible by way of the SYNCRONYS Query Portal as well as other third-party applications. As a result, participating care providers will be able to provide more efficient and informed care while reducing costs and eliminating any unnecessary duplicate imaging procedures.
“We are excited to be a part of SYNCRONYS’ future by improving provider access to patient information that includes diagnostic images,” stated Gary Larson, Executive Vice President and General Manager, HIE Solutions at eHealth Technologies. “By partnering together, residents of the state of New Mexico will have access to the highest level of care.”
eHealth Technologies, the leading provider of image-enabled HIE services, has collaborated with local, regional and state-wide HIEs across the US to include access to diagnostic quality medical images as an integral part of their patient’s longitudinal records.
SYNCRONYS is New Mexico’s only HIE and was established in 2009 to improve care coordination and chronic disease outcomes while reducing unnecessary costs of care for patients in the state. “Our partnership with eHealth Technologies allows SYNCRONYS to provide an optimal experience for HIE users with the ability to view and transfer medical images from the HIE interface,” said Thomas East, PhD, Chief Executive Officer at SYNCRONYS. “The capability of accessing medical images at the point-of-care enhances patient care across our state and will help to eliminate duplicative procedures.”
