In an effort to streamline the medical records system for our patients and their health care team, we have not only introduced an electronic medical record system, but have enhanced that system with a state-of-the-art picture archiving and communication system (PACS). PACS allows your physician and other authorized clinicians to transmit, store and retrieve diagnostic images, such as X-rays and ultrasound.
Physicians no longer have to wait for diagnostic images to be processed, printed and manually retrieved. Once an image is taken and interpreted by a radiologist, it can immediately be added to your electronic medical record and is available for viewing on special computer systems throughout the hospital or via the physician’s office workstation.
Offering physicians easier, faster access to your test or procedure results can help our doctors provide you with a quicker diagnosis and better care.
