GLHC – Radiology Imaging Enablement

Healthcare stakeholders have the need to receive radiology reports from patients’ test results, and also see the actual radiology image without the added complexity and expense of a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS). Great Lakes Health Connect (GLHC) in Grand Rapids, MI has developed a method for sending providers radiology reports electronically, in an easy to interpret format for seamless viewing of images without the need for a PACS system, also eliminating the burden of storing these very large images on site. This significantly reduces duplicate testing, thus reducing patients’ radiation exposure and allowing for quicker diagnosis and treatment.
