Image Exchange and Referrals Management Improvements
Enhancements to two Care Everywhere components are coming soon. Care Everywhere is an Epic feature enabling physicians and healthcare providers to electronically transmit and receive patient health records with authorized caregivers outside Houston Methodist.
With Care Everywhere Image Exchange, you’ll be able to exchange medical images using DICOM standards such as X-rays, MRIs and ultrasounds, as well as scanned document images from OnBase.
- Aug. 18: You can share documents with other Epic organizations participating in Image Exchange, and you also can view documents and DICOM images shared.
- Nov. 22: You can begin sharing DICOM with other Epic organizations participating in Care Everywhere Image Exchange.
- Aug. 18: Referrals Management will synchronize information items like referral status, expiration date and total number of visits. This saves you from faxing a new referral request every time a referral changes. When someone outside our organization updates a referral, the HM referral will update simultaneously.
