Interoperability is the wave of the future in healthcare—when you connect to HealthlinkNY, you will be prepared.
How Radiology Sites Benefit by Connecting to HealthlinkNY:
- HealthlinkNY gives you access to prior imaging reports. A patient’s imaging history is available at your fingertips, even images taken during hospitalizations. You can compare past images with current images—all on one screen.
- You’ll reduce duplicate testing. Save time and avoid insurance challenges.
- It’s easier to deliver reports. Automatically deliver images directly to all providers named on the report—no need to physically transport images and results to each location.
- You’ll improve provider satisfaction. More and more providers use HealthlinkNY to collect patient data from other providers. With HealthlinkNY, you can deliver reports the way providers want them: online and accessible anywhere at any time.
- You can protect patient health. Providers throughout New York State, including emergency rooms, have immediate access to your images. If a patient presents at an ER, you will save ER clinicians valuable time—and possibly the patient’s life—by uploading images to the HIE.
- You’ll know more about your patient. Because radiologists can access their patient’s complete medical history in HealthlinkNY, they can look at the whole patient and put their findings in context.
- You will improve patient care and the patient experience. When providers have access to images, they can pinpoint abnormalities quicker and hasten diagnosis and treatment. Patient satisfaction increases when they receive a quicker diagnosis, and when they are not responsible for transporting images to their doctor appointments.
